Help Wanted: A lead state workforce official is a review of Ohio's multi-agency state workforce structure and a blueprint for strengthening workforce development in Ohio. CRP found that the state faces a deficit of workers with the 21st century education and skills needed by employers. In Ohio, 46% of Ohio adults ages 18 to 64 -- 3.3 million -- have no postsecondary education, a figure worse than 35 other states. The report identifies over $2 billion in state and federal resources, administered by at least nine state agencies, that directly and indirectly support workforce development in Ohio. Although important steps have been taken to reorganize, coordinate, and put a greater focus on workforce development, a leadership gap remains. The report recommends that Ohio name a lead state workforce official and that a primary goal of this official should be filling "middle skill" jobs: those that require more than a high school diploma, but less than a four-year degree. This should be done by (1) meeting the current and future needs of employers, (2) supporting success for adults in education and training, and (3) establishing state policy and a national presence. The report includes detailed recommendations in each of these areas. Included in the report are examples of how several other states have aligned roles, programs, and resources to elevate workforce development and examples of successful local and regional workforce development initiatives in southwest, central, and northeast Ohio. Funding for the report was provided by The Joyce Foundation as part of the national Working Poor Families Project.
