- Business Resources: Workforce Support for the Tech Industry
RITE is Northeast Ohio’s IT workforce alliance and the tech talent arm of the GCP. As an integral part of GCP’s broader talent agenda, RITE accelerates the development of a diverse, highly- skilled IT workforce by: mobilizing employers, leadership, involvement, and support optimizing regional efforts through performance accountability and shared resources delivering programming that builds the interest, skills, knowledge, experience, and connections students and job seekers need to pursue IT careers in Northeast Ohio. Since its inception, RITE has served as a critical nexus between regional employers, colleges and universities, high schools, workforce, and economic development organizations with partnerships and programming that span Lorain County, Greater Cleveland, Akron/Summit County, and Mahoning Valley. In 2019, GCP RITE created a unified structure to drive an employer-led tech talent strategy. In 2020, with this foundation in place, GCP RITE was selected as the intermediary for Workforce Connect IT Sector Partnership. In general, GCP RITE addresses two pressing economic issues: a significant shortage of IT talent for employers and the need for clear and actionable IT career pathways for students and jobseekers. ”Workforce Connect IT, a new IT sector partnership initiative, is focused on connecting employers to the right skilled talent, as well as improving economic opportunity for residents of Cuyahoga County, including an emphasis on reducing racial disparities in economic outcomes within the IT workforce.” says Shana Marbury, SVP, Talent & Chief Legal Counsel for GCP “There has never been a more urgent moment in time to double-down on our commitment to equity and inclusion as we launch this new initiative.” Driving all of this work is a commitment to performance accountability. In 2021, GCP RITE will publish new dashboards to gauge our community’s and GCP RITE’s progress against specific key performance indicators. Employer input into this process is vital. Starting this fall, RITE is recruiting fifty companies to form the NEO50, representing the region across various industries, sizes, and geographies, to create a baseline for these dashboards. RITE intends to create NEO50 over the winter and to establish the data baselines by early 2021. Future targets for improvement will be set by RITE’s Regional Leadership Board, in conjunction with the development of the IT Sector Partnership.

- Tech Elevator | GCP INGEAR
IT careers are some of the highest-paying jobs in the Cleveland region with a median annual salary of $78k. They are also some of the most in-demand by local employers, with five of the top twenty in-demand jobs coming from the IT sector. Despite high wages and excellent career advancement opportunities, area companies are having a hard time filling available openings. The number of IT credentials awarded each year in northeast Ohio significantly lags behind employer demand causing a large talent gap. To help fill this IT talent gap, Greater Cleveland Partnership has partnered with Tech Elevator, a nationally recognized coding Bootcamp located in Cleveland, to administer an aptitude test to incumbent and displaced workers. This aptitude test can help companies identify employees with a high potential for learning software development skills as well as helping displaced job seekers figure out if they have the skillset necessary to pursue a career in software development. $78K avg annual salary in Cleveland 5 of 20 in-demand jobs 4,000+ unfilled entry-level jobs each year Take The Apitude Test
