85% of Hoosier employers struggle to meet their talent needs.1

Overwhelmingly, individuals look to their employers for guidance on additional education and training2, yet less than half of working-age Hoosiers have completed education or training beyond high school.3

The Talent Resource Navigator was built to bridge this gap: connecting individuals and employers with the relevant partners, programs, and practices that are best equipped to meet their workforce development needs.

About the Talent Resource Navigator

The Talent Resource Navigator is a free, web-based tool from the Indiana Chamber of Commerce that offers the convenience of one-stop shopping for education and job training opportunities. Supported by on-demand customer service and technical assistance, the Navigator intentionally guides and connects individuals and employers with a tailored set of talent development resources based on each user’s identified needs.

Navigator Goals

  • Collect, organize and disseminate vetted information on proven talent development strategies and practices.
  • Increase capacity for building robust talent pipelines across regions, industries and institutions in Indiana.
  • Grow the numbers of organizations and individuals that are actively and productively engaged in talent development.
  • Improve career-related education and training in Indiana by strengthening the feedback loop among business, education, community and government partners.

The Talent Resource Navigator is a program of the Institute for Workforce Excellence, a nonprofit subsidiary of the Indiana Chamber dedicated to helping Indiana better attract, develop and retain the Hoosier talent needed to drive a highly skilled and equitable workforce.
