COM   August 18, 2016   Mr. Will Anderson Director Baltimore County Department of Workforce & Employment Development 400 Washington Avenue Suite 100 Towson, MD 21204 SUBJECT: TRENDS IN OCCUPATIONAL EMPLOYMENT — BALTIMORE COUNTY MARKET ANALYSIS Dear Mr. Anderson: Enclosed please find the Valbridge Property Advisors-Jacob France Institute analysis of trends in employment in the Baltimore County workforce. Our labor market supply and demand analysis identifies the key strengths that Baltimore County can build on and challenges that it must address in implementing its integrated economic and workforce development strategy. We find that the County overall is well positioned to meet the needs of its employer community, though the County is experiencing somewhat slower rates of growth of Millennials and residents employed in Management, business, science, and arts occupations than national, state and regional rates; and in-C ounty resident job creation has not matched the growth in the County’s workforce.  Based on our analysis, the Valbridge-JFI Team makes policy recommendations to inform DEWD’s efforts to promote economic and workforce development and meet industry and workforce demands over the next 5 to 10 years. It has been a great pleasure working with you and the DEWD staff on this project.

The goals of this analysis are to:    Identify new and emerging job trends (including types of jobs, skills and applicants) within the County’s core industries, with analysis of how these job trends affect each industry;      Develop projections in  job number trends for the County’s core industries and provide strategies for Baltimore County to better meet workforce and industry demands, citing examples from other metropolitan regions;    Analyze future opportunities and gaps in workforce training programs and initiatives to better address future industry needs;    Provide case study examples from other metropolitan counties and regions that have pursued promising solutions to address the evolving trends in jobs and nature of work; and    Provide recommendations for the roles Baltimore County government can play to meet the future needs of its workforce and core industries. Baltimore County DEWD retained the team of Valbridge Property Advisors (Valbridge) and the Jacob France Institute (JFI), the Valbridge-JFI Team, to prepare this Labor Market Supply and Demand Report for the County. This report will consist of the following elements: Chapter 1: An Assessment of Current and Projected Trends in Occupational Employment; Chapter 2: A Description of Coun ty’s Workforce Demographic and Occupational Profile; Chapter 3: The Identification of Opportunities and Gaps in Baltimore County’s Workforce Development System; Chapter 4: Case Studies of Best Practices in Similar Jurisdictions; Chapter 5: High Level Recommendations to Guide the County’s Strategy, based on the analyses conducted; and Chapters 6- 14: Data on industry and occupational employment trends for Baltimore County’s core industries.
