MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Greater Memphis Chamber wants to hear from Mid-South employers about what skills and education levels are needed in the region.

The Chamber said the survey results will inform and directly influence workforce development and education in the area.

The 2023 Bridging the Talent Gap Employer Survey is a partnership with The Graduate! Network, The Kresge Foundation, and other local chambers.

This 15-minute survey is available through Feb. 3, 2023, to chief executives and human resources personnel. The Chamber hopes to survey 130 employers, which would make this its largest workforce survey ever. Find the survey HERE.

The Chamber said it hopes to reach a goal of adding 50,000 jobs to the region by the end of 2030 as part of its Prosper Memphis 2030 plan.

“Memphis is a vibrant city that continues to attract key businesses and industries, and they all have one thing in common: the need for a robust and agile workforce that’s able to pivot and upskill quickly to meet current and future needs,” said Amity Schuyler, the Greater Memphis Chamber’s senior vice president of Workforce Development, in a news release. “This survey will help us grow the workforce of the future.”

The Chamber said individual survey answers are kept strictly confidential. However, employers completing it will have access to an interactive data dashboard that will include benchmark data from national surveys.
