Manufacturing Tools & Insights Unveiled By Maryland Department of Labor Including a New Public Transit Mapping Tool!
RMI | Regional Manufacturing Institute of Maryland
Last week, members of the Maryland Department of Labor (MD DoL) team unveiled a new tool developed in conjunction with Regional Manufacturing Institute of Maryland (RMI) and other tools that job seekers and manufacturing industry leaders may find helpful.
As RMI continues to help manufacturers find solutions to their workforce challenges, President Mike Galiazzo approached MD DoL Deputy Assistant Secretary Erin Roth for assistance creating a mapping tool to allow job seekers to identify public transportation routes from their home to Maryland manufacturing companies.
As Adam Greeney, Chief Economist, Office of Workforce Information, MD DoL, notes in this brief, 25-minute video, what was discovered through the development of the Transit Accessibility Map, is that “70% of the manufacturing establishments around the State are within a half mile of public transit.” This tool is one that could be very useful for manufacturers to showcase at a job fair or use as a recruitment tool in communications with potential job seekers. The Transit Accessibility for Manufacturing Map can be found here.
Other tools showcased during last week’s presentation include:
