TIP Strategies was recently engaged by a regional collaborative that consists of the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Fargo-Moorhead Economic Development Corporation, the Fargo-Moorhead Area Foundation, and the United Way of Cass-Clay. The engagement will consist of a comprehensive labor study and a regional workforce strategy. With an unemployment rate of 2.5 percent, the Greater Fargo-Moorhead region faces formidable workforce challenges as their economy continues along its stable growth trajectory. The collaborative formed to undertake a regional approach to addressing these challenges. The TIP study will create the foundation for this initiative, providing information and strategic recommendations that will guide regional investments in workforce development.
