The Governor’s Survey of Employer Competencies from AlabamaWorks! and the Alabama Workforce Council (AWC) is a vital component in adding 500,000 new highly skilled jobs in the state by 2025.

Business owners in each sector and region are being surveyed to assist the Alabama Committee on Credentialing and Career Pathways (ACCCP) with identifying current in-demand occupations and competencies, as well as credentials of value-aligned to those occupations.

AlabamaWorks! and the AWC recognize that the majority of jobs lack specification regarding skills required to perform them and, as a result, a bachelor’s degree has become the default certification for most jobs that require postsecondary education. Identifying the skills, knowledge, abilities, and attributes needed to succeed within in-demand jobs will prepare Alabama’s workforce for the future.
