  • Impact studies (education, workforce, and industry)
  • Targeted industry/cluster analyses
  • Workforce/labor market analyses (including competency analyses)
  • Econmic Gap analyses
  • Asset mapping

Another way to think about the work EMSI does is in terms of the questions we frequently address:

  • What is the economic impact of a particular institution or event?
  • Which high-growth industries are most likely to promote a region’s economic development?
  • What comprises the regional workforce (in terms of the industry mix, number of jobs, etc.)?
  • What are the region’s major assets (e.g., population demographics, employment, etc.)?

Part of the scope of work for the grant included the development of a Regional Recovery Plan. The Regional Recovery Plan includes both short-term and long-term strategies intended to guide the Region’s economic stabilization and recovery from current and future economic shocks and to help foster a resilient and sustainable North Central Wisconsin.
