The momentum we’ve built for UpSkill Houston couldn’t have been achieved without many committed partners working toward a two-part goal: a stronger Houston economy and prosperity for its residents.
JPMORGAN CHASE & CO is a leading global financial services firm and one of the largest banking institutions in the United States, with operations worldwide.
As part of their five-year, $250 million New Skills at Work initiative, they released the Houston Skills Gap Report—providing a comprehensive look at available middle-skill jobs in the petrochemical and industrial/commercial construction industries. It offers data-driven steps that city policy makers, community colleges, training providers and private sector employers can take to fill these critical, good-paying jobs. This report became essential for the success of UpSkill Houston and has helped drive the coordination and alignment that are necessary to achieve the impact and performance our regional economy requires to continue its growth.
