New tool, Schoolahoop, to help combat labor shortage in Wisconsin

Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) has announced a new resource, a school locator tool called Schoolahoop, which will help employers, workers, and prospective employees find the best educational options in their area. The tool provides a comprehensive list of the state’s educational institutions, broad information about each, and links to their corresponding websites.

WMC is hopeful that Schoolahoop will help employers attract and retain workers by providing a recruiting tool to share with prospective employees. Schoolahoop will allow employers to ensure that workers’ decisions about their place of employment are informed by a thorough knowledge of the educational opportunities available to their children. It provides a service with the potential to benefit employers and employees alike and combat the severe labor shortage with which Wisconsin has recently struggled.
