The Health Careers Alliance for Southeast Michigan (HCA) is an employer-led healthcare collaborative with over 23 major healthcare systems in Michigan. This proven model is designed to organize healthcare industry employers to identify strategies to address common talent needs. By working together, our healthcare employers can meet workforce needs more effectively and efficiently while helping community members access higher quality career pathways.
The long-term goal is to support the healthcare industry cluster with state, regional, and local employer-led collaboratives throughout Michigan. The HCA is committed to following the Talent Pipeline Management (TPM) six strategies to address its primary purpose of ensuring robust talent pipelines for critical need jobs. The TPM model organizes employers to identify strategies to address common talent needs. By working together, employers can meet workforce needs more effectively and efficiently.
State of Michigan Support for Demand-Driven Employer-Led Collaboratives
The State encourages sector strategies to develop demand-driven, employer-led collaboratives. These collaboratives, which can be statewide, regional or local, identify galvanizing issues that collectively impact employers, employees and job seekers. Employers then create customized, targeted solutions that leverage the power of collective problem solving to meet employers’ workforce needs faster and more effectively than individual employers can alone.
The HCA is an employer-led collaborative co-facilitated with the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO) and the Workforce Intelligence Network (WIN).
