Worker Shortages and the North Central Massachusetts Region

Engaging Hidden and Future Workers to Grow the Local Economy

This project was initiated by the North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce, and it is the intent of the Engaging Hidden and Future Workers to Grow the Local Economy report to provide solutions for employers and suggestions for the Chamber to address the labor market imbalance in the current moment as well as into the future. The combination of slow population growth, increasing retirements of older Baby Boomers, and the impacts of COVID-19 on the labor markets, make it an imperative for the North Central region to draw potential workers into jobs as well as to attract and retain the future workers businesses will need to thrive and expand.
