Labor Market Information 101!

Join Troy McMillan, a Labor Market & Career Resources Specialist, for an enlightening talk about labor market information (LMI) and its role in the work we do in the workforce development system. We’ll learn what it is and why we should incorporate it into all aspects of the work we do.

Labor market, workforce, and career resource information are essential elements that help shape and strengthen our  nation’s economy. These necessary components help us answer questions that are tied to a robust workforce system. The goal of LMI is to help customers make informed plans, choices, and decisions for a variety of purposes including:

  • Workforce and economic trends,
  • Business investment – needs and expectations,
  • Career planning and preparation,
  • Training and education offerings, and
  • Job search opportunities

It is a fact that to sustain a vibrant, thriving, and growing economy, workforce decisions rely on labor market information for the development of sound public policy decisions.
