Introduction: Region 6

Key Findings 1.

Region 6 workers found new jobs during Q2 2016.

The labor force in Region 6 remained stagnant between quarters while employment increased 1.2%. Because the labor force remained the same, this growth in employment can be attributed to the addition of new jobs in Region 6. (See page 4 for details). 2.

Employer demand in Region 6 continues to increase during 2016.

Although total job postings decreased slightly between Q1 and Q2 2016, Region 6 employers still posted 22% more online job ads between April through June 2016 than they did in the final months of 2015. (See page 4 for details). 3. While employer demand fell in many occupation groups during Q2, demand for Customer Service workers remained high. Customer Service is one of the largest occupation groups in Region 6. Experience Customer Service workers with higher educational attainment can earn high wages as sales representatives. (See page 17 for details). 4.

Business and Finance occupations are becoming a larger part of Region 6 employment.

Employment in the Business and Finance occupations has grown every year since 2010. These occupations often require a bachelor’s degree and offer Region 6 workers a range of salaries. (See page 37 for details). 5. Employer demand for Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics (TDL) workers continues to grow at an astronomical rate. Region 6 employers posted 1,422 online job ads for TDL jobs during Q2, 30% more than in Q1 2016. The mean advertised salary for TDL occupations during Q2 was nearly $75,000. (See page 27 for details).

Executive Summary

Postings Over Time

Total Online Job Postings

Q1 2011 - Q2 2016

Online job postings by employers in the 7-county Region 6 decreased slightly between Q1 and Q2 2016, from 9,114 to 9,017. Despite the small decrease this quarter, employer demand, as approximated by these job postings, is still 22% higher in Region 6 than at the end of 2015, when employers posted 7,397 online job ads in Q4. Overall, job postings in Region 6 are on the rise since dropping from a peak of 12,856 in Q3 2013.

Data: Burning Glass Technologies Analysis: Workforce Intelligence Network

Labor Force, Employment, & Unemployment The labor force in Region 6 remained relatively stagnant, adding just 182 workers between Q1 and Q2 2016. Meanwhile, employment in the region increased 1.2%, adding 4,247 jobs between quarters. Because the labor force remained the same, this growth in employment can be attributed to the addition of new jobs in Region 6. This growth also brought the region’s unemployment rate down one percentage point to 5.2% in Q2. The unemployment rate for 2016 to-date is 5.8%. Overall, the unemployment rate in the county has decreased from 14.6% in 2010 and employment has grown by almost 25,000 jobs in the same time period.

Skilled Trades & Technicians (Manufacturing Focused)

Introduction Skilled Trades & Technicians

Online Job Postings

WIN’s technicians/skilled trades category includes jobs related to advanced manufacturing. Southeast Michigan has more demand for skilled- trades labor, such as CNC machinists and welders, than almost anywhere else in the country. NOTE: Skilled trades related to construction and assembly are not included in this cluster, as the focus is on advanced manufacturing only. Postings Over Time Region 6 advanced manufacturing employers looking to hire Skilled Trades workers posted 344 online job ads during Q2 2016. This is a 22% decrease from the 442 job postings in Region 6 for this occupation group during Q1. Generally, employer demand for Skilled Trades workers in Region 6 had leveled off between 275 and 300 postings per quarter the past several quarters, so 344 postings during Q2 is still high but the decrease between quarters may indicate that demand is returning to its equilibrium.

Data: Burning Glass Technologies Analysis: Workforce Intelligence Network

Employment Over Time

Employment Over Time Absent any periods of substantially high employer demand (and hiring), employment in the Skilled Trades occupations in Region 6 has remained fairly stagnant over the past 5 years. Employment in these occupations dipped to 6,702 employees in 2009 at the depths of the Great Recession but reached 11,758 workers in 2012. In 2016, 11,281 Region 6 workers are employed in Skilled Trades jobs, nowhere near the almost 19,000 workers employed in these jobs in 2001.

Minimum Educational Attainment Required Q2 2016

Only 193 of the 344 Q2 Skilled Trades job postings specified a desired level of educational attainment. The distribution of these requirements can be seen in the graph to the right: almost all jobs are attainable with a high school diploma and/or some vocational training. Most employers require training outside of high school but not all training results in a formal credential. Only 29 postings explicitly requested that applicants hold a bachelor’s degree – these postings tend to be for management roles within the Skilled Trades occupations.

A similar number of job ads specified a desired experience level for Skilled Trades workers. The data show that most Skilled Trades jobs available in Region 6 are within reach for workers with less than 5 years of experience (101 postings during Q2). Again, those jobs requiring more experience, 6 years and beyond, are likely for some management occupations included in this group.

Thirty-one percent (106 postings) of Skilled Trades job postings in Region 6 during Q2 2016 specified a wage or salary range. The majority of those (75 postings) offered wages that amount to less than $35,000 a year, or less than $17 per hour. The Skilled Trades occupations tend to be some of the lowest paying in southeast Michigan and across the country. Wage data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show a slightly rosier story: half of the top ten in-demand Skilled Trades occupations for Region 6 workers make more than $17 per hour at the median. The highest paid occupations in the group are in management, like first-line supervisors of production workers, and engineering, like manufacturing production technicians, roles.

Engineers & Designers (Manufacturing Focused)

Introduction Engineers & Designers

Online Job Postings

Jobs in the manufacturing industry can range from assembly and production, to skilled trades and technicians, designers and engineers, and even computerrelated occupations such as software development. Demand for engineers in the region has been consistent, and employment has been growing quickly. Postings Over Time Online job postings for advanced manufacturing Engineering & Design occupations in Region 6 decreased 9% between Q1 and Q2 2016, from 239 to 218 postings. The number of postings that Region 6 area employers post for Engineering & Design workers fluctuates each quarter, but postings have trended upward during the past several quarters. Continued analysis will reveal whether growth in employer demand will drive employment growth in Region 6 Engineering & Design occupations.

Data: Burning Glass Technologies Analysis: Workforce Intelligence Network

Employment Over Time

Employment Over Time In 2016, 5,563 Region 6 workers are employed in advanced manufacturing Engineering & Design occupations. Annual employment growth in this group has been stagnant in Region 6 since 2011. The long-term trend in employment in Engineering & Design has been a decline, even pre-recession.

Customer Service

Introduction Customer Service

Online Job Postings

The customer service group is the largest occupational group that WIN analyzes, both in terms of employment and online job postings. This group is of very high importance to the region because it is the first to grow when the economy expands and the first to contract in a downturn: it is often a leading indicator. As defined by WIN, this group encompasses all customer service occupations, with skills transferrable across the retail sector, the hotel industry, food and beverage service industry, call centers, and other areas. Postings Over Time Employer demand for Customer Service occupations in Region 6 remained stagnant between Q1 and Q2 2016, dropping slightly from 2,165 to 2,145 job postings. Postings for this occupation group fluctuate widely from quarter to quarter; it is likely that demand will decline at a moderate rate until postings jump in Q4 signaling holiday season hiring.

Data: Burning Glass Technologies Analysis: Workforce Intelligence Network

Employment Over Time

Employment Over Time Region 6 employment in Customer Service occupations has remained stagnant for the past few years. In 2016, 164,064 Region 6 workers are employed in Customer Service occupations, just 529 more workers than in 2015. This stagnation in employment follows the drop from pre-recession employment levels above 180,000 workers.

Health Care

Introduction Health Care

Online Job Postings

WIN’s health care occupation group includes jobs related to health care support and practitioners. Employment in this group has been consistently growing, more health care workers needed to care for Michigan’s aging population and in response to regulatory and other changes. Registered nurses are routinely the most in-demand job in this group. Postings Over Time Along with Customer Service, Health Care is one of the largest occupation groups in Region 6. Employers in the county posted 1,612 online job postings for Health Care workers during Q2 2016. This is a 6.5% decrease from the 1,725 postings seen in the previous quarter, however, the general trend in demand is continued growth. Employer demand in the Health Care occupations continues to grow in Region 6 – increased demand is correlated with growth in employment for these types of workers.

Data: Burning Glass Technologies Analysis: Workforce Intelligence Network

Employment Over Time

Employment Over Time With high and increasing demand for Health Care workers, employment in the Health Care occupations has grown, generally, over the analysis period from 2001 to present. In 2016, 29,998 Region 6 workers are employed in Health Care occupations. Employment decreased between 2012 and 2013 but has grown each year since.
