Many of us are familiar with the concept of an “economic base,” those industries that make up the foundation of economic activity in a region. A similar framework can be utilized to understand the “talent base” of a community as well. Our talent assessment will help you understand the foundation of workforce activity in your community, including factors such as the programming and talent development pipeline, the vulnerability of occupations to automation, the likelihood workers would and could work from home, and related measures.
