TALENT 2025 Dashboard

Community Research Institute   (Grand Rapids)

January 2014

Begun in 2011, this dashboard is TALENT 2025’s “go to” data source for the monitoring of ongoing improvement efforts around two major goals; (1) to achieve 60% post-secondary attainment in the 25 years of age or older West Michigan workforce by 2025 and (2) to achieve 30% attainment of 4 year college degrees or beyond in the 25 years of age workforce by 2024. The primary audience for this project is 50 CEO’s of companies in West Michigan with interest in early childhood, K-12, Higher Education and Adult Workforce issues.

They have created eleven working groups, each moving towards change in a specific area. CEOs engage in one or more working groups and act as an accountability partner with stakeholders to illuminate performance gaps, evaluate solutions and advocate for proven strategies to improve the talent system. These strategies are published as leading practices for employers and stakeholders in the talent system to adopt.
