Empowering workforce training
New Hampshire is a great place to live and work, so it is no surprise that our unemployment rate is consistently among the lowest in the country.
With so many people already employed here, it can be difficult for companies to find qualified and skilled employees to replace the people who are retiring. On top of that, New Hampshire’s advanced manufacturing, healthcare, construction & infrastructure, hospitality and IT companies are growing rapidly, leaving many employers looking for help to hire enough trained workers to meet demand.
New Hampshire is expected to gain about 47,000 new jobs by 2024, and the current annual average number of job openings is expected to reach 31,270
