Study on Bringing Skilled Labor to Region Launches in 2019
Funding for a new study will help the Shenandoah Valley analyze how best to recruit and retain skilled professionals in 2019.
The GO Virginia Region 8 Council recently approved $64,800 in funding for the Shenandoah Valley Talent Solutions Strategy. GO Virginia is a business-led initiative that was formed to foster private-sector growth and diversification, and its eighth region stretches from Winchester to Lexington. Its money will go towards a project totaling $134,800 that’s being funded in part by Frederick, Clarke, Page, Shenandoah, and Warren counties as well as the city of Winchester. Their Talent Solutions Strategy will conduct surveys, interview human resource directors, and assemble focus groups of student career guides with a goal of identifying recruitment and retention strategies to bring more better quality workers to the region. The group will secure consultants as soon as early 2019; the entire study is expected to be finished by the end of the new year.
