2017-2018 GP Talent Forecast

At the end of 2016, we circulated a detailed job projection survey to our region’s top employers in our healthcare, manufacturing, professional technical services, agribusiness and logistics industries.

43 employers completed the survey, projecting a total of roughly 9,200 jobs that will become available from 2017 through 2018. About 60% are replacement positions, and 40% are new positions.

The findings of our survey will help us focus our workforce development programs and gain a better understanding of the sectors in which our economy will be expanding.  This will help us grow and retain our own talent in the region, but also inform our recruiting efforts to attract talented professionals to put down roots in Greater Peoria.
