CEG works with industry clusters to help develop and deliver programming that supports a strong workforce pipeline and advances the careers of incumbent workers.
We work daily to build a skilled workforce and education pipeline; to cultivate a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem; and to ensure a modern infrastructure to grow local companies, attract new investment, and prepare our communities for growth.
The Pathways Project is a project by the Capital Region Workforce Development Boards supporting Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Columbia, Greene, Saratoga, Warren & Washington Counties and managed by the Center for Economic Growth. This five month long study analyzed the transferable skills between manufacturing and advanced manufacturing in the Capital Region; explored the opinions and needs of manufacturing CEOs and HR representatives; and, analyzed the interests, hobbies, media consumption habits, and career experiences of the region’s non-exempt manufacturing employees.
