CenterState CEO’s Work Train team has released a new Workforce Data Report for the Syracuse MSA. This analytic look at current conditions and trends relies on labor market data to help align partners around shared solutions and strategies, spark conversation and support data-driven decision-making to address issues affecting businesses and jobseekers. Read the Dec. 2020 report here. It will be updated and released periodically.

The report highlights roughly 24,000 open jobs in the region, with nearly 7,500 of those jobs within just 10 miles of Syracuse. At the same time, almost 20,000 people are unemployed. Additionally, we know that unemployment is falling, in part because large numbers of people are dropping out of the workforce and recovery for mid-and high-wage jobs is good, but people in low wage jobs are not recovering as quickly. This leaves the Syracuse MSA with a low unemployment rate, but the city of Syracuse still sees higher unemployment than the state and federal averages. Work Train is using this data to better understand employer and job seeker needs and find ways to align the two.

Businesses are invited to review and utilize the report's data to inform and support their organizations. It is intended to be a valuable tool as firms look to improve job quality and advance their talent attraction and retention strategies, particularly in the tech, construction, health care and manufacturing industries.
