Inside Indiana Business: State Getting 'Skillful' About Workforce Efforts
February 15, 2018 INDIANAPOLIS - Governor Eric Holcomb is one of 20 founding governors in a national effort to boost workforce skills. The Skillful State Network focuses on creating a labor market in the U.S. where employers can tap into desired talent and workers can continuously acquire new skills. The network says it will leverage data and technology and allow participating states to share "what works." In addition to Indiana, founding states include Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, Montana, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. Holcomb says "our focus in Indiana is preparing our workforce for jobs available now and in the years to come. Sharing workforce practices among Skillful State Network members and encouraging multiple pathways to success in a changing economy will strengthen our talent pool, meet employer demand and put hardworking Hoosiers in high-need, high-wage careers of the future." The network is an initiative of the New York-based Markle Foundation. It has created the Skillful State Playbook, which includes tools and resources to establish an open sharing model for participants. You can connect to more about the network by clicking here.

Inside Indiana Business: Manufacturing Exec: Indiana Has a 'Population Problem'
February 15, 2018 INDIANAPOLIS - The president of the Indiana Manufacturers Association says, to fill the growing number of openings in Indiana's manufacturing sector and beyond, the state needs to ramp up efforts to increase its population. "Our check engine light is on," says Brian Burton, "and it's blinking." He says the association is pushing a measure with state lawmakers that would exempt some people who move to Indiana for a job from paying state income tax for a number of years. Burton, who took part in Ivy Tech Community College's Sector Summit Tuesday, calls the population issue a "major problem." He believes the idea of the tax exemption is "gaining traction" with some key decision makers. He says the idea wouldn't cost the state anything, since people living out of state aren't paying state income taxes anyway.. Burton was part of a panel of nearly a dozen industry leaders to take part in the Ivy Tech event Tuesday. More than 300 deans, counselors and educators from Ivy Tech campuses throughout the state attended. The annual event aims to connect state, industry and education leaders to help interest students in a broad range of career paths and enable them to develop the skills needed to pursue them. The Sector Summit continues with planning sessions throughout the day. This morning's panel included: Tina Adams, Managing Director, IND Hub Operations, Fed Ex Express Beth Bechdol, President and CEO, AgriNovus Indiana Brian Burton, President and CEO, Indiana Manufacturers Association Zachary Cattell, President, Indiana Health Care Association Brian Cuthrell, Account Manager - Communications, TEKsystems David Holt, Vice President of Operations and Business Development, Conexus Indiana Mike Langellier, President and CEO, TechPoint Chris Price, President, Indiana Construction Roundtable Foundation Harold Wilson, Southern Indiana Placement Services Manager, Cummins Inc. Regina Ashley, Chief Operating Officer, Indiana Department of Workforce Development Burton, who took part in Ivy Tech Community College's Sector Summit Tuesday, calls the population issue a "major problem."
