Who We Serve
How We Work
Two areas distinguish our work – our role and our strategy.
ConxusNEO provides leadership, expertise, and facilitation to improve talent system partner performance while laying a foundation for system-wide transformation. The goal is to position companies to be more competitive and to increase access to opportunity for Summit County’s residents.
We start with the needs of companies and focus on getting the right people, with the right skills, to the right place, at the right time. We utilize a supply chain approach to deliver value to the end customer, the company. That means talent supply chain partners - education and training providers, the public workforce system, economic development leaders, and community-based organizations – also benefit from generating shared value across the system and support to build their own capacity to deliver value. Achieving the best mix of responsiveness and efficiency benefits everyone.
ConxusNEO provides key functions to bring high-performing players together working collectively to take action on shared goals:
- Identify where there is the greatest unmet demand for a skilled workforce within targeted industry sectors
- Mobilize key stakeholders to respond to that demand
- Track results to determine whether the resulting interventions are making a difference, and to gain insights into what works and what doesn’t
