CREC designed and delivered Labor Market Intelligence (LMI) training to members of the National Association of Workforce Boards (NAWB). The training titled, Labor Market Intelligence: Using Analytics to Focus your Investments, emphasized the importance of building workforce development systems on a knowledge base of local industry intelligence.  Labor market information includes all quantitative or qualitative data and analysis related to employment and the workforce. The goal of LMI is to help customers make informed plans, choices, and decisions for a variety of purposes, including business investment decision making, career planning and preparation, education and training offerings, job search opportunities, hiring, and public or private workforce investments.  NAWB represents approximately 600 Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs) and their 12,000 business members that coordinate and leverage workforce strategies with education and economic development stakeholders within their local communities, to ensure that state and local workforce development and job training programs meet the needs of employers.
