Our Aerospace workforce has qualities valued in any industry:
- a high quality work ethic
- process and safety disciplines
- strong loyalty
- pride in their work
- a culture of precision performance.
Over the last three years, as the Space Shuttle program moved toward its retirement, regional leaders have been engaged in anticipating and managing the economic impact of this change with a goal of retaining this highly-skilled workforce in our region.
The Aerospace Career and Development Council Transition (ACDC) team is one such group. It is composed of leaders in aerospace, workforce and economic development from many expert parts of the community and is represented by major companies, educational institutions, political and policy experts and regional leadership. Their expertise and sector knowledge over the evolving transition continues to provide invaluable leadership, counsel and assistance in positioning Brevard County and its talented workforce.
Smart businesses know this could be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to capture particular skill sets or retrain talented and experienced workers to improve their own operations.
The business community can help this effort by being part of the solution, while taking advantage of hiring incentives and gaining talent advantages for their enterprise in the process.
Many businesses, large and small, are hungry for the skills, work ethic and security clearance of the amazing talent pool now available or coming available from the aerospace sector. Funding for hiring incentives exists through the National Emergency Grant program, helping by supplementing salaries if businesses train.
