Bridging The Talent Gap

Gathering data to better address skills shortages in Colorado


The Colorado Workforce Development Council, the Colorado Department of Higher Education, and the Office of Economic Development and International Trade along with other members of the TalentFOUND network is leading efforts to administer an employer and employee survey to:

  • Understand the skills gaps Colorado businesses and workers are facing 

  • Identify how education and training programs can help close those skills gaps

This initiative is running from April to December 2021, which includes gathering, analyzing, and sharing data, and making recommendations for consideration.
