Are you developing your Talent Supply Chain?

If human capital is your most important and valuable resource, why wouldn’t you treat the development of future talent as you would any other valuable supply chain?  Are you authentically and appropriately engaged in all tiers of your Talent Supply Chain?

The United States Chamber of Commerce Foundation has developed the “Talent Pipeline Management (TPM) approach, a demand-driven strategy to create real career pathways for students and workers with talent pipelines aligned to dynamic business needs”. TPM Practitioners understand the importance of engaging with all tiers of their Talent Supply Chain, from Elementary School (Tier 3), to Middle & High School (Tier 2), to Post Secondary (Tier 1).  It’s critical that employers partner with educators and STEM providers to build awareness and excitement for STEM Careers, develop STEM skillsets, and foster brand recognition in their future workforce.  It’s critical that this engagement begin early, and be sustained throughout the K-16 educational experience of your future workforce.  

Square One facilitates these critical relationships between students, educators and employers.  We generate interest in STEM Careers, bring awareness to your brand, and illuminate & highlight STEM career pathways for students, all within the context of our teacher professional learning and student engineering challenges.

Join our premier industry partners and take advantage of simplified access to your talent pipeline.
