About Tampa Bay Partnership:

The Tampa Bay Partnership is a privately-funded, CEO-driven regional advocacy organization committed to creating a unified, competitive and prosperous Tampa Bay. Formally incorporated in 1994 and reestablished in 2016 with a new mission and leadership structure, the Partnership offers a unique peer-to-peer environment where the region’s top business leaders champion regional solutions to the toughest economic challenges facing Tampa Bay today. Through its Foundation, the Partnership conducts objective, data-focused research to identify those challenges and measure our progress toward shared community goals.

About Tampa Bay Works:

In January 2019, the Tampa Bay Partnership’s Regional Talent Working Group, in collaboration with research firm TIP Strategies, released a regional workforce initiative implementation plan: Tampa Bay Works. As its first step, the Partnership will identify two employer collaboratives (groups of businesses with a common workforce need) to pilot an employer-led, demand-driven workforce initiative in the Tampa Bay region.

This effort will provide a clear target for our educational institutions and workforce organizations, by identifying current and future demand for jobs, and the specific skills, certificates and/or degrees those jobs will require.

A Request for Information (RFI) has been issued to select the initial industry sector and/or talent cluster.
