As the U.S. economy emerges from the impacts of the Great Recession, a number of unique situations exists that impact businesses’ ability to grow and workers’ ability to obtain full employment. Profound skills gaps persist in a wide spectrum of industries, as does a lack of effective, competency-based training and credentialing.

MSG partners with governments, education and community organizations, and employers to actively address these economic challenges. By mapping the knowledge, skills, and attributes businesses are seeking in their employees to educational pathways, and assessing learning along the pathway so that students/workers can earn credentials with labor market value, MSG’s efforts in workforce development strengthen individuals’ abilities to be mobile in the workforce.
Manhattan Strategy actively understands the transformational ways in which technology can be used to expand the reach of trainers, educators, and technical assistance providers; to bring stakeholders together from across the nation to brainstorm ideas and share insights; and to offer high quality assistance, resources, and community interaction to workers and other users nationwide regardless of location.

MSG has been at the forefront of this evolution, expanding on its work in developing virtual technical assistance through online portals and Communities of Practice (CoPs). MSG has been involved in creating tools to help state and local workforce investment boards further support and develop career pathways systems that will transform the way in which adults enter and exist education, training and careers.
