Emsi for Economic Development

Using data to give you the insight you need to drive prosperity in your region


Economic developers are at the heart of creating the conditions for prosperity in their community. By partnering together, we can give you the precise insight on your region’s skills, labour market trends and strengths, helping you to make the right decisions to drive growth


Know Your Region

Making good economic development decisions requires having a good grasp of what is driving your region’s economy.

We can help you by giving you highly granular data that will enable you to better understand the industry and occupation trends in your region, and identify what makes your region unique.

Help People into Work

Our fundamental belief is that your region’s biggest asset is its people and their skills. Yet the mismatch between these skills and employer demand – the skills gap – is a very real problem.

We can help you tackle this problem by using data to connect people to in-demand occupations in your region, thereby supporting people into sustainable jobs.

Local Sector Strengthfinder

With devolution, Brexit and the end to central funding of local authorities, it is now more imperative than ever for regions to be able to articulate and evidence their “proposition” to business.

Our goal is to offer you the insight on your local economy's strengths, opportunities and threats that will help you develop a sound strategy to retain, grow and attract businesses in your region.
