Our objective at the Lehigh Valley Workforce Development Board, Inc. is to not only build a workforce delivery system for the Lehigh Valley but provide valuable labor market information and data.  This information ensures an employer demand-driven world class workforce system aligned with economic development, education and the community focusing on targeted industry clusters.

I have provided specialized data for the last quarter of 2015.  Please feel free to click on the links and images to view in more detail.  

Lehigh Valley Snapshot

Top occupations in demand?........Truck driver and registered nurses top the list!

Quarterly Monthly Workstats

Largest employment growth?.......Health care and social assistance.
No surprise here since Pennsylvania has the fourth largest senior population and elder healthcare is a growing business in Pennsylvania and nationwide.

Growing industries of Interest?......... Beverage manufacturing showed the second highest growth (9.0%) along side of promoters of performing arts and sports (9.7%).   Pennsylvania already has over 130 breweries and the list is growing!
