Ensuring The Future - Middle Skill Gap Assessment for Advanced Logistics and Business Services
As a continuation of the Regional Strategic Plan for the area encompassing El Paso, Texas, Southern New Mexico and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico that ultimately created the Borderplex Alliance in 2012, Thomas P Miller and Associates (TPMA) was contracted to perform a middle-skill gap assessment for the El Paso Region. With workforce development as a crucial piece of The Borderplex Alliance 2015-2020 Regional Strategic Plan, TPMA was charged with analyzing the potential for career advancement via “middle-skill” level positions defined as positions that require some education or training beyond high school, but not a Bachelor’s degree. Specifically, TPMA evaluated the middle-skill opportunities within the Advanced Logistics and Business Services industries, the two most promising industries to benefit from strategic recommendations to more efficiently upskill workers to more advanced degrees.
