Indiana Projected to Grow More Than 336,000 Jobs by 2022

by Gov. Pence Press Release on November 6, 2014

INDIANAPOLIS – According to data compiled by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, (DWD), the Hoosier State will grow approximately 336,640 new jobs by 2022. This number signifies an employment growth rate of 11.86 percent during that period.

Based on these projections, the bulk of the growth will come from the Manufacturing, Retail Trade, and Healthcare Sectors, which will account for nearly one-third of the projected growth. The Hoosier State will also need to replace 665,953 workers who are retiring and to account for normal job market turnover. This constitutes a total need of roughly 1,002,593 employees over the next decade.

“Since day one, our administration has worked to increase collaboration between employers and educators in order to ensure Hoosiers have the skills they need to succeed in the workforce of today and of the future,” said Governor Mike Pence. “These projections compiled by the Department of Workforce Development underscore the critical nature of this effort as employers in our state prepare to hire more than one million employees in the next ten years. I am confident that because of our focus on workforce preparedness and skills training Indiana will have all of the tools needed to meet this demand.”
