Strengthening Workforce Readiness

To continue the economic momentum under way in Detroit – and to ensure that it improves the lives of all Detroit residents – it is critical to invest in building a competitive workforce with the skills local employers need.

In 2016, JPMorgan Chase and the Corporation for a Skilled Workforce released research on Detroit’s labor market and workforce system. Our goal: to enable the city’s leaders to make data-driven investments in training programs, align resources to support job growth, and connect and better prepare Detroiters for job opportunities in the city. Here are some of our findings:

Nearly two in three Detroit workers travel out of the city to get to their jobs because there is a mismatch between the jobs available in Detroit and the people who live there.

Investing In Detroit's Most Effective Training Programs
JPMorgan Chase is supporting high-quality, proven training providers to help more Detroit residents develop the skills, credentials and experience they need to get on stable and rewarding career pathways.
