We’re Minnesota’s career development and talent matching resource. We guide people toward rewarding careers, connect individuals to opportunities and help employers find the workers they need to grow and thrive.
In the face of increasingly tight labor markets, a growing scarcity of workers is now recognized as one of Minnesota’s most significant barriers to sustained economic growth. Because of these constraints, it has become evident that immigration has been and will continue to be a vital source of the workforce that employers need to succeed.
Racial disparities in education, employment, and income exist and persist for a wide variety of reasons, but the economic challenges and opportunities every region in Minnesota will face over the next 15 years are so great that they will need to be tackled with a multi-pronged approach to attracting, retaining, and training workers of all demographic characteristics.
