SEMCOG, the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments, and its partner organization, the Metropolitan Affairs Coalition (MAC), have launched a survey to gather residents’ perceptions on being prepared for the changing world of work. What will be the in-demand skills of the future? How can we make sure that our residents have the skills to remain employable throughout their careers as technology and the economy continue to evolve?
Citizens are asked to take this quick survey. Responses will help guide our planning efforts and the work of the new Future Skills Task Force.
“Technology is transforming the economy and, as a result, many American jobs are becoming obsolete,” said Kathleen Lomako, SEMCOG Executive Director and MAC President. “To respond to the rapid pace of change, it is necessary to institute a system of lifelong learning so that our workforce has the required skills to give Southeast Michigan a competitive advantage. This survey will help us identify some of the changing needs in the workforce.”
This survey is powered by Cobalt Community Research, a Michigan-based 501c3 nonprofit research coalition with a mission to provide research and educational tools that help schools, local governments, and other nonprofit member organizations thrive as changes emerge in the economic, demographic, and social landscape.
