More businesses and site selection consultants are asking EDOs to show them the skills embedded in their communities. They have the baseline workforce and economic data -- they want you to go further. In this webinar, Emsi will discuss how EDOs can use real-time skills data to refine your business development and talent attraction efforts and communicate the precise clusters of skills and talent you have. Learn how cutting-edge EDOs are using the full sweep of labor data (from online social profiles and resumes, job postings, and government sources) to better target the right companies and talent for their communities.
