For the past five years, the Central Illinois Workforce Board has provided the community with a state of the workforce report. The Talent Force 21: 2008 State of the Workforce Report represents the key issues emerging from an analysis of the central Illinois (Marshall, Peoria, Stark, Tazewell and Woodford counties) workforce. It focuses on the quality, quantity and alignment of the workforce to the current and emerging economy.
