To address the workforce shortage, the Lincoln Trail Workforce Development Board (LTWDB) engaged the Strategy Matters consulting firm's services to map the workforce's challenges in accessing employment and address employer needs.

The strategic plan addresses the continuing challenges of the workforce shortage, answering the strategic questions:

  • What modifications might we need to make to the WCTF's approach to raising labor force participation rates, if any?
  • What is the role of youth training investments in our strategy? (Where should we invest?)
  • If we had more funding for adult training, where should we invest? (Think geography, host institution, focus of skill/credentials, etc.)
