INDIANAPOLIS — A new organization aims to help Hoosier employers recognize the value of skills training when hiring employees for their facilities, rather than just simply looking for workers with a college degree.
Skillful Indiana, which launched Thursday, is based on a Colorado program that successfully has expanded employment opportunities for individuals with non-traditional education backgrounds, while helping residents tailor their skills to meet employer needs.
Officials at the Markle Foundation said they selected Indiana as the second Skillful state because Hoosier leaders already are keenly focused on developing a skills-based labor market through the state's education and workforce development agencies.
