SITUATION: In western Tennessee, just outside the Memphis MSA, VisionFirst conducted a detailed workforce audit of the Memphis Regional Megasite. During the course of the engagement, the region received an RFI from Ford and SK Innovation. VisionFirst served as an extension of the project team to develop and lead the workforce pitch to Ford and SK Innovation.
SOLUTION: VisionFirst expanded upon recent TVA efforts and the workforce alignment audit to identify initiatives to increase regional competitiveness. The data highlights the abundance of manufacturing and related occupations in the region, as well as the future talent pipeline for a company to succeed in the region.
SUCCESS: As a result of strong partnerships and a compelling workforce pitch, West Tennessee was awarded the project. The Blue Oval campus will transform the region and create thousands of high-quality jobs.
