Job Creation

Not all jobs are good jobs. We’re working to drive long-term, sustainable economic growth.

Job Preparation

There are an abundance of job seekers and an abundance of positions going unfilled in Northeast Ohio. We’re working to close the gap.

The vitality of Northeast Ohio’s economy depends on its ability to connect people to good jobs. We’re working to bring jobs to people and people to jobs.
