The WIN research and data team has extensive experience creating customized surveys to help partners and clients better understand workforce trends, employer demands, and future needs. Using a variety of tools including SurveyMonkey, the WIN team can help your organization learn more about your membership’s talent needs, analyze wage data, and even help predict future talent gaps.

Customized Talent Analysis

Every company is different and faces unique challenges. WIN’s customized talent analysis can help identify, quantify, and analyze the talent needs for specific companies, regions, and even governments that will allow for better talent management, planning, and investment. WIN works closely with individual employers helping them navigate the unique labor market around their local area.

WIN is also the primary contractor working with the National Network of Manufacturing Institutes (NNMI) focused on investing public and private dollars in the future manufacturing workforce. WIN’s analysis coupled with local knowledge, helps to guide the institutes into making actionable and sound investment decisions for workforce training and programming.

Forecasting and time-series analysis

WIN is in a unique position as its staff possesses the data, skills, and knowledge to utilize complex econometric models and long-run analysis. Forecasting the “next big thing” has always been difficult but with WIN’s expertise and experience, clients and partners can have a peak into the future that is conservative, well-researched, and data informed.

Workforce Planning

One of WIN’s goals is to provide strategic planning assistance to the WIN board organizations. To fulfill this, WIN worked closely with the MWAs on the board to develop and write the regional prosperity region plans for regions 6, 9, and 10 to align with the state mandate for regional Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) plans. WIN has also worked closely with the MAGMA board, Opportunity Detroit Tech employer partners, and Oakland County to help them develop long-term strategies to combat employee attrition, turnover, attraction, and training.
