Labor Market Studies: Healthcare and Hospitality Industry Clusters (2006)
San Diego Workforce Partnership

The San Diego Workforce Partnership’s primary mission is to provide a job training system that ensures a skilled, productive workforce to support a healthy economy. Understanding the occupations found in San Diego County’s industry clusters and the educational and skill requirements of those occupations is a critical component to building a successful workforce system. Two of San Diego County’s key industry clusters are Healthcare and Hospitality. A skilled, trained and educated workforce is needed to help these industry clusters remain strong and expand.

Study Objectives

In 2006, the San Diego Workforce Partnership commissioned SourcePoint and Godbe Research Associates to research the healthcare and hospitality industry clusters to determine the industry and occupational characteristics of the clusters. The information produced would assist employers market the healthcare and hospitality careers to potential employees and to define educational career paths to help industry professionals advance.

SourcePoint Solution

SourcePoint, in partnership with Godbe Research Associates, created policy reports and occupational profiles for the Healthcare and Hospitality Industry Clusters. The publications describe the sectors and the related occupations, as well as recommendations on how to ensure that San Diego has the healthcare and hospitality workforce it needs. By classifying industry occupations and requirements, identifying educational and training opportunities, and outlining the industries’ career ladders, the study provided an important resource for economic and workforce professionals, employers, jobseekers, and others.
