Topic/Theme: MaineSpark’s place in the workforce challenge.
The challenge facing all of Maine, as well as most industries today, is our workforce challenge. Education and skills gaps, as well as limits to our workforce supply, are problems being faced all over our state. What are we doing to recognize the needs, fill gaps, and attract new people? Through MaineSpark, we give you a glimpse of the efforts that are underway, working to address and help solve these issues.
