Talent Pipeline Management: An Innovative Approach to Bridging the Talent Gap

Like many cities across the United States, Louisville is currently facing a workforce crisis. Bridging the Talent Gap, a talent alignment survey conducted by LSHRM in 2017, found that 86% of Louisville’s businesses are preparing for growth in the next three to five years. At the same time, 84% of employers have difficulties filling vacancies today. This talent deficit will continue growing as demand increases posing substantial challenges for Louisville’s competitiveness in a global economy.

To address this widening talent gap, the Kentucky Chamber Workforce Center, in partnership with the US Chamber Foundation and the Kentucky Workforce Investment Board, is leading a new initiative and tool known as Talent Pipeline Management (TPM). Utilizing supply chain management principles, TPM empowers businesses to create and manage talent supply chains through projecting talent needs and aligning those with education and workforce development systems.

Kentucky has been selected as one of three states in the nation to lead this effort and will be launching their first TPM Academy in September 2018. Attendees will learn more about the state of Louisville’s workforce, how TPM works and how they can get involved to help in bridging the talent gap.

Register to attend, and be the among the first to learn about this innovative workforce tool.
