CEDIA White Paper Examines Workforce Development Challenges
The document aims to explain the state of the workforce in the industry, provide answers to challenges and highlight CEDIA’s developmental role.
FISHERS, Ind. — CEDIA has released a new white paper covering an issue critical to all integrators, manufacturers and related businesses in the industry: workforce development.
Titled “Workforce Development 101 for Systems Integration Industry Employers,” the white paper pulls together a variety of resources related to the issue of workforce development and talent, detailing subject matter relating to: workforce development programming, factors that determine success, key terminology, goal attainment, workforce needs, employer approach, outreach, drivers and key activities.
In addition to background information, the white paper also discusses ways to engage — for employers in the industry, for outside officials involved in job creation and for other stakeholders — and dives into CEDIA’s ongoing workforce initiatives, according to an announcement.
“A highly-skilled workforce is the lifeblood of any industry, but in an industry as people-focused as our industry, workforce development takes on an even more critical role,” CEDIA Director of Workforce Development Tommy Tabor says. “This white paper — the first of its kind for CEDIA on the subject — not only dives into workforce development in broad terms, but also details how CEDIA as an industry organization is working to foster a high-quality, global talent pipeline at the macro level, and analyzes what industry employers should be doing at the micro [local] level in the communities in which they work.”
The white paper can be download here. CEDIA members receive complimentary access to the white paper; the cost is $99 for non-members.
