RETAINING GREAT TALENT.
While the South Bend-Elkhart Region has much to offer companies, we believe our most important asset is a large, highly skilled and motivated workforce. Our region is focused on increasing the availability of work-ready talent for all key industry sectors, as well as preparing workers for a changing global economy both now and in the future.

The job of preparing workers for a changing global economy both now and in the future isn’t just a task to be handed to educators. It’s something that is best done by a coalition of educators and industry with the participation of students and workers who want to prepare for success in the modern workplace. We are building key industry sector partnerships around Manufacturing, IT and Healthcare which will include employers, educators and supporting community organizations. These partnership work in collaboration to determine how to best leverage and align our K-12 systems, post-secondary education and training, and other resources to maximize individual potential and meet workforce needs.
