The report shows that access to top employment talent is key to retaining a healthy economy in Morris County.

Towards that end, the Morris-Sussex-Warren Workforce Development Board, an independent agency which directs federal and state funding to workforce development programs and oversees the One-Stop Career Centers, is collaborating with the Morris County Economic Development Corporation to strategically align workforce and economic development.

The 2019 Morris County Talent Pipeline Report, jointly issued by the  Morris-Sussex-Warren Workforce Development Board and the Morris County Economic Development Corporation, identifies the dominant industry sectors, occupations within these sectors and talent pipeline projections.

The 2019 report is designed as the first step in the creation of a Comprehensive Workforce Plan to ensure that Morris County can retain and attract human capital to support businesses in the county, a goal which is identified in the Morris County Strategic Plan.
