"The Oklahoma business community is critical to the success of our
youngest children." - Patrice Douglas, Mayor, Edmond, OK
To stay competitive, companies need an educated workforce. Development of a strong and sophisticated workforce begins before a child enters kindergarten. Employers want to hire critical thinkers, problem-solvers, life-long learners, socially competent and emotionally healthy individuals, team players, and those that can balance work/life issues. These characteristics are brought about by skills acquired in the early years!
Oklahoma's Workforce Employer Survey
The Oklahoma Workforce Employer Survey was conducted in the summer of 2006 to assess
current and future workforce needs in Oklahoma. Some of the skills employers found difficult
to find while hiring are skills that develop in the first 5 years of life.
