Aligning Opportunities in Northeast Ohio

The Aligning Opportunities annual report is your resource for understanding the demand and supply imbalance in Northeast Ohio’s workforce.

Aligning Opportunities

The Aligning Opportunities report identifies the supply and demand misalignment within Northeast Ohio’s talent pipeline, specifically within the in-demand, high-growth fields of health care, IT and manufacturing.

Since 2019, Team NEO has partnered with Delta Dental to increase awareness of Aligning Opportunities among the business and higher education communities. We engage key decision-makers in meaningful discussions about resolving the talent supply and equity gap, and providing students with greater awareness of, and access to, in-demand careers.

Job Demand Report

Team NEO has created a Job Demand report which contains job demand calculations measured by job postings. This report can be utilized by county economic development organizations when creating workforce strategies. The job demand report can also be used by local community colleges and trade schools when creating a curriculum for Northeast Ohio residents to better understand what occupations offer the greatest opportunity as in-demand careers.

Please contact Sydney Martis if you’re interested in a Job Demand Report for your county.
