Launch of the TLH Talent Pipeline Management Academy
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) — With a $200,000 grant from the HCA Healthcare Foundation’s Healthier Futures Fund, a local Talent Pipeline Management Academy will come to Tallahassee, according to a news release.
This is in conjunction with the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce and HCA Florida Capital Hospital in hopes of addressing a shortage of local talent, which is particularly affecting the healthcare sector.
“Florida is the third most populous state in the nation and by 2030, the capital will need more than 12,100 new jobs to prepare for the future,” the statement said.
According to the release, “Talent Pipeline Management is a workforce strategy that helps regions across the country meet the ever-changing business needs of the community.”
This national project is championed by the United States Chamber of Commerce, with the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce adopting it in 2020 “based on community needs” during the pandemic.
The goal of the HCA Healthcare Foundation’s Healthier Futures Fund is to “support innovative initiatives focused on addressing high-priority community needs and health equity,” according to the release. The $80 million fund was announced in 2021 and disbursed $41 million to community organizations that year.
The academy will be officially announced at a short press conference at the Goodwood Museum & Gardens, which the statement said will take place at 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 28.
