The Greater Memphis
Bridging The Talent Gap Employer Survey


Memphis is a vibrant city that continues to attract key businesses and industries, and they all have one thing in common --- the need for a robust and agile workforce able to pivot and upskill to meet current and future needs. To support regional efforts to grow the workforce of the future, the Greater Memphis Chamber is launching the 2023 Bridging the Talent Gap Employer Survey to  identify skills and education needs in the greater Memphis region.

What is Bridging the Talent Gap?

Bridging The Talent Gap or BTTG is a groundbreaking, grassroots initiative to help employers and other stakeholders understand the regional skills and education landscapes to support the creation of a  skilled and thriving workforce in our community. The BTTG campaign sponsor, The Graduate! Network, leads a national effort to increase college completion among adults, one community at a time, and Bridging The Talent Gap is their employer and employee engagement strategy.

About the Survey


Chambers in the Memphis region will invite Human Resource Directors and CEOs/Presidents to complete a 15-minute survey to understand the hiring environment, talent needs and current talent development focus in the greater Memphis region.


Participating in the BTTG Survey gives employers and employees of the greater Memphis region a voice to guide the development of lasting solutions to

  • Increase educational attainment

  • Meet existing and future talent needs

  • Ensure the region has a skilled and educated workforce

An interactive data dashboard will be benchmarked to national responses and made available after  survey results are compiled. This data will inform the development and prioritization of regional workforce strategies.

Survey Timeline

They survey will run during the five week period from January 2nd 2023 to February 3rd 2023.
