Torrey Snow interviewed Don Fry, President and CEO of the Greater Baltimore Committee. They recently released a report about family supporting jobs in the Baltimore metro region. The jobs could help develop a healthy business economy.
“Our Board of Directors felt that rather than looking just at the current workforce, they wanted to look ahead, look 10 years out from a regional perspective,” said Fry.
The report address what needs have to be met in order to secure a better business economy, and where problems and promise are. Disparities in race, gender, and education were also addressed. Through the research, it was found that Business services, Information Technology, Construction and Healthcare are the fields that will grow the most.
The report took 18 months, and they now plan to move into implementing plans.
