Today’s unprecedented tight labor market, anticipated attrition due to baby boomer retirements, and growth of high demand and skilled jobs, has created a tremendous tension between the demand to fill jobs and the lack of supply ready to fill those jobs.
The goal of Catapult is to invest in the exponential growth of Greater Boston’s most effective, market-driven training and education organizations in partnership with the region’s most savvy businesses to leverage the region’s potential for sustaining talent via the workforce system.
