There is a gap between jobs available in Boulder and the workforce available to fill those positions across all industries and skill levels. One contributing factor to the overall challenge is the lack of training specific to the needs of local businesses. Another contributing factor is the challenge to recruiting / retaining talent to jobs in Boulder region.
Trends indicate this gap will only grow in the next few years, especially as workplace environments continue to evolve and more jobs require higher levels of technological literacy and professional competencies.
