4CG (4 County Group 4 Collaborative Growth) is the “official” Huron County workforce collaboration with Huron, Sandusky, Seneca, and Ottawa counties.  This four-county group has worked together and collaborated on events and activities for the last six years.  We have acquired FULL funding through the State of Ohio Department of Job and Family Services for this workforce study and analysis for our four-county region and shared labor pool.

The 4CG group and our consultant held a SWOT (Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities, Threats) Analysis on September 11, 2019 at Terra State with 53 participants from all four counties.  HCDC wants and needs feedback from our Huron County employers!  The implementation portion of this project will be based on information YOU provided us for the analysis and study! 

Our next step is focus group meetings by industry sectors to allow us to dive deeper into the issues specific to them.  The seven industry sectors are:  1) Agriculture, 2) Healthcare, 3) Construction, 4) Manufacturing, 5) Service/Travel/Tourism, 6) Transportation/Logistics, and 7) Davis Besse.   If you would like to participate in the industry sector relative to your business, please let us know as soon as possible. 

Your suggestions and input is the only way we can create a solution for your company’s and our four-county region’s workforce challenges.  Help us and be part of the solution and part of history in the making!
