A study recently conducted for Forward Sioux Falls identified workforce development as the highest priority challenge facing the local economy.
The Sioux Falls area economy and population are growing economically at levels greater than state and national averages. However, if the availability and skill levels of workers are not enhanced, continued growth might not be sustainable, according to the study.
Forward Sioux Falls is a community-development program created and jointly administered by the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce and the Sioux Falls Development Foundation. To explore workforce challenges and help develop a course of action, Forward Sioux Falls engaged Market Street Services to assess the area’s competitive position and workforce training needs.
