Visit to learn more and to download the full 2018 State of the St. Louis Workforce Report and the 4-page infographic summary. Each year since 2009 the College and its research partners have tracked the recovery and growth of our region’s workforce, as well as its continuing challenges, through the research and production of this report. It has provided timely and critical workforce intelligence that has helped St. Louis Community College respond to the needs of our students and employer partners. We also believe that it has provided valuable information to the region’s many public, private and community based organizations who are struggling to prepare or acquire the skilled workforce necessary to drive our economy forward.

The St. Louis region’s businesses struggle to fill positions in an economy where job openings exceed unemployment rates – in the Midwest by 20 percent. These hiring challenges and employers’ shifting needs in such a dynamic economic environment are at the core of the analysis in St. Louis Community College’s 10th annual State of the St. Louis Workforce Report, which was released Aug. 8 at the college’s Forest Park campus. “No matter how you look at the data, we have a serious workforce gap,” said Jeff Pittman, Ph.D., STLCC chancellor. “We must work together to solve this problem.” For 2018, the college focused the survey and report on three industry sectors that are of critical importance to the economy for the next 10 years and beyond.
