Regional LaborshedThe Mid Iowa Growth Partnership (MIGP) region has a long tradition of providing a productive workforce that can be the difference businesses can bank on for profitable operations. MIGP has completed their 2017 Laborshed Analysis & Report to determine labor availability for new and expanding companies. A Laborshed is defined as the area or region from which an employment center draws its commuting workers. Laborshed studies show the distribution of the workers regardless of natural or political boundaries. Laborsheds also address underemployment, the availability and willingness of current and prospective employees to change employment within the workforce, current and desired occupations, wages, hours worked and distance willing to commute to work.
