Uniting Florida Businesses to Create America’s BEST Workforce

Nearly 72% of Florida’s workforce leaders have informed the Florida Workforce Needs Study 2.0 that they have struggled to find qualified talent over the past year. Through the Future of Work Florida Initiative, the Florida Chamber has developed a multi-year plan to unite and harness the power of thousands of Florida businesses, dozens of local chambers and economic development groups, education and workforce partners, HR leaders, hiring managers and more, to turn this workforce crisis into a competitive strength for Florida.

Millions of jobs will require certifications and credentials, but not necessarily 4-year degrees. In this business-led effort the Future of Work Florida Initiative will promote the importance of career exploration and align market needs with talent supply.
