BioOhio, the Buckeye State’s bioscience industry association, has announced a new engagement with workforce development firm Workmorphis to build out a workforce development strategy and implementation plan addressing the growing talent needs of BioOhio member companies.
“The growth that the bioscience, health, and life science industry is experiencing in Ohio is tremendously exciting,” said Eddie Pauline, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioOhio. “Now we need to ensure we have the right mix of talent to satisfy all the new job opportunities that this growth has created, with a sustainable pipeline for the future,”
According to this news release, the strategy will seek to improve BioOhio members’ awareness of and access to emerging workforce trends, challenges, insights, and the numerous workforce resources in Ohio. The association is focused on empowering its members to effectively navigate talent resources and communicate skills needs to educators at all levels who develop curricula. To do so, BioOhio plans to regularly convene bioscience, health, life science, and academic leaders to discuss workforce issues and inspire awareness among Ohioans and out-of-state residents about our state’s thriving bioscience industry, including career opportunities and pathways offered by member companies.
