A chief consideration for growing a successful business is the skill and education of area residents. Better-educated workers are more productive, and having access to a better-educated workforce makes businesses more productive. The Detroit Regional Chamber is deeply committed to developing and maintaining a workforce with the skills and education to contribute to a thriving economy in the region.
The Chamber has active, passionate committees and teams that work on this issue daily, as well as partnerships with the many world-class educational institutions and organizations in the area to continually develop and retain a highly skilled workforce – and it’s working.
The Chamber supports high academic standards in K-12 education in order to ensure all students are prepared for careers and post-secondary education. Specifically the Chamber has supported the Michigan Merit Curriculum and the State’s implementation of the Common Core.
