The annual Governor’s Survey of Employer Competencies was established in 2020 to gain industry insight to align education and workforce strategies to the needs of Alabama employers. The governor is leading a strategy to develop a common language of competencies that are required for every demand occupation in the state and align that common language to credentials and degrees.
The responses to this survey are provided to the Alabama Committee on Credentials and Career Pathways (ACCCP) technical advisory committees. These committees consist of industry representatives whose purpose is to review occupational competency models to align them with employer feedback and adjust for new technological skills. The committees also make suggestions on credentials that align with demand occupations, to produce an Alabama Compendium of Valuable Credentials.
The more feedback we get from Alabama employers, the more successful these tools will be for Alabamians’ success in high-demand careers and for Alabama businesses seeking a qualified workforce.
