Austin’s Hire Local Plan facilitates demand-driven workforce

by Margaret Willard

If the job market in Austin is hot, the cost of living is ablaze – an equation that needs balancing.

Enter the Hire Local Plan, a blueprint for workplace development with a goal to make living in Austin more affordable by improving economically disadvantaged residents’ access to better economic opportunities.

Via multiple channels – from awareness and enrollment to training, placement and advancement – the hope is to:

• Increase skilled local talent, while better defining the region’s capacity for training.

• Improve income for local people by creating an affordability index.

• Grow payrolls for local businesses.

Together, let’s create a demand-driven workforce system.
