Talent Supply & Education
Florida faces an emerging talent gap — a crisis in human capital that represents a vast and growing unmet need for a highly skilled and educated workforce. The Florida Council of 100′s Closing the Talent Gap report outlines issues and recommendations related to Florida’s talent supply chain which is defined in four zones: Pre-K, Primary/Secondary, Post-Secondary and Workforce Development. In the next two decades, new products and services will be developed to address the world’s most pressing environmental, medical, and transportation challenges. The site of those breakthroughs will reap the economic rewards of leadership. Without a thriving base of knowledge workers, that place may not be Florida. The time to build Florida’s future workforce is now, and education and training must be its foundation.
