Overview

Employers embracing a common language around workforce skill requirements is a crucial part of the Work Ready Communities effort. Community goals include a measure of business engagement.

The Greater Jackson Alliance has partnered with Hinds Community College and Economic Development Offices from Hinds, Warren, and Rankin Counties to become a nationally recognized Work Ready Community. Visit http://www.workreadycommunities.org for more information.

In order to become work ready, ACT® has set the following goals for our counties:

COUNTY EMERGING TRANSITIONING CURRENT TOTAL CERTIFICATIONS TOTAL SUPPORTING EMPLOYERS
HINDS 555 636 60 1251 225
WARREN 160 149 30 339 111
RANKIN 323 307 30 660 157
MADISON 177 227 26 430 128


Definitions:

  • Emerging – Secondary and Postsecondary students who are preparing to enter the workforce
  • Transitioning – Unemployed or Underemployed
