Sector partnerships are the key

New Hampshire’s low unemployment rate and positive economic growth come with challenges, as employers, recruiters and HR departments struggle to find qualified people to work in the roughly 15,000 open positions across the state. About 7,500 of the unfilled jobs are in the hospitality, construction, health care, technology, and manufacturing sectors. It’s time to rethink how we approach workforce training programs.

By 2020, 65% of New Hampshire’s jobs will require some form of post-secondary education or training, including the programs offered through SPI. Right now, only about half of the state’s workers have post-secondary credentials.

The SPI difference

If companies within these sectors can band together to identify common needs, SPI is poised to use pre-existing resources and new approaches to create training opportunities that give your current workforce the skills they’ll need to advance within your company.

Demystify workforce resources

Our state’s workforce development challenge has sparked many programs to try to help people gain the training employers need. An unintended consequence of these unique and varied programs is that finding the right funding for training programs and resources (or combination of resources) can be time-consuming and confusing. SPI navigates this for your industry as a whole.
