Employers can find the talent they need, transform their local and regional labor markets, and boost STAR mobility by embracing a collective approach to skills-based job pathways.
Large enterprise employers have footprints that span cities, states, regions, and even nations. Workers, on the other hand, experience the labor market in a local context. This remains true, even as work has evolved to include more remote options. Only 20% of workers hold remote jobs and, among workers who work outside the home, 76% of workers have a commute of less than 30 minutes. Hiring is a local endeavor; even for a national employer, a sustainable talent strategy relies on a healthy local labor market.
