Basing its blueprint on that of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the local Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce (GPCC) recently recommended the Talent Pipeline Management (TPM) model for business solutions.
GPCC’s Greater Phoenix Chamber Foundation established a set of five collaborative groups matching industry stakeholders, elected officials and educators to customize workforce strategies for a range of industries, including cybersecurity, health care and hospitals, compliance and risk management, construction and financial services, according to the chamber.
“TPM works by using a systemic, data-driven approach to developing workforce talent,” GPCC President and CEO Todd Sanders wrote on the chamber's website.
He explained that the model combines concepts from supply chain management with executive leadership.
“The process ultimately provides a smoother and more successful transition to employment for learners," he wrote.
Demand outpaces supply for specialized training, and the foundation's goal is to help synchronize employer needs with educational results, the chamber said.
Sanders said that TPM can enhance communication channels while streamlining the change from training to employment status.
Tools and objectives include creating a certification program for compliance/risk-management careers, kicking off a marketing campaign for the chamber’s AZComplianceRiskTalent.com website and establishing a spectrum of potential work experiences among diverse industries, according to the chamber.
