DAYTON, Ohio – The Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce will announce the launch of a new workforce tool spurred by the demands of the region’s business community. The new website includes critical economic data, career forecasting information and regional tools to align the area’s workforce capabilities with business hiring needs.

The grant was awarded through the Association for Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE). The chamber worked with several community partners on the project including Ohio Means Jobs, Dayton Metro Library, Learn to Earn Dayton, Applied Research Institute of Wright State University, Montgomery County’s Development Services and ACCE Education Attainment Division.
