Labor Market Analysts

Our Regional Labor Market Analysts and workforce economists are the state's experts on the latest labor market intelligence, economic conditions and trends. They provide regions with accessible expertise, analysis services, training and presentations on special topics.

They also offer training on labor market intelligence for workforce development and economic development professionals. These hands-on sessions provide an overview and better understanding of the regional economy and job market.

Speaker Bureau and Regional LMI Contacts

DEED's labor market analysts and workforce economists are also available for presentations.

Our experts deliver more than 100 seminars, panel presentations, breakout sessions, briefings and trainings a year. They address local Workforce Investment Boards, classes at local colleges and libraries, meetings of human resource professionals, local chamber events, and conferences.

DEED typically provides speakers free of charge for events that are open to the public or organized by partners in Minnesota's workforce development and education systems. A fee may be assessed to present at closed or for-profit events. 

To schedule a speaker, we ask that you please complete a presentation request form and email it to DEED.LMI@state.mn.us or fax it to 651-282-5429. Please allow one week for your request to be considered.
