Access to current, local labor market data to conduct in-depth analyses and comparisons is vital for developing successful strategies for retaining employers, attracting new businesses, and securing new investments. Virtual OneStop’s unique combination of national, state, and real-time data, integrated into one analysis tool, is a winning combination for all economic development agencies.
Virtual OneStop provides the cleanest, most accurate economic data available, centralized in one location. This includes our high-quality database of historical and aggregate national jobs data. The jobs database offers a glimpse into the real-time job market, with the ability to compare changes over time. Economic developers are able to perform customized labor market studies using information from government surveys and real-time supply and demand data. The system has flexible controls for search criteria based on time periods, geographic divisions (e.g., multiple states, counties, cities, metropolitan areas, or regions), occupations (O*NET), industries (NAICS), job listing sources, or selection of a specific employer.
The growing demand for green industry growth initiatives can pose a challenge to economic development agencies. The Virtual OneStop application is designed to identify green industries, green training programs, current green job openings, and provide real-time analysis of the green jobs labor market. Geographic Solutions has developed a Green Jobs Portal for Virtual OneStop that identifies employment and training opportunities for workers in energy efficiency and renewable energy.
Virtual OneStop provides economic developers with the ability to compare data for multiple geographic areas, industries, or occupations, both locally and nationally. The rich data and dynamic reporting capability will help maximize your retention and growth initiatives. Virtual OneStop provides various statistical data for industry sectors, including employment and wages, employment statistics, occupational staffing projections, and long and short-term projected growth rates for the selected industry. For economic development research and strategic planning purposes, the data provides the ability to compare cities, counties, regions and other jurisdictions, and provides valuable insight for decision makers. Reports can be generated for monthly, quarterly, and annual time frames.
