Background

The Occupation In-Demand list (OID) is a set of jobs that we expect to be key regional drivers of employment growth in the near future.

The list only includes occupations with 50 or more jobs within Pierce County. The “In-Demand” classification is based on the Employment Security Department’s occupation projections, updated annually, and adjusted throughout the year, based on partner feedback and other regional considerations. The OID list helps guide training funds and is a criteria for training programs on the state’s Eligible Training Provider List.

OID UPDATES & MANAGEMENT

Using the OID Change Request form, community partners and employers can submit additional information to support the reclassification of an occupation. WFC will review all change requests and supporting documentation with the goal of making a final determination within five business days*. It is the responsibility of the requestor to submit a clear rationale and supporting evidence for a reclassification. If the change request does not make a strong case, a request may be declined. WFC will notify the requester of the final decision as soon as a decision is reached. If approved, an OID update will also be sent to the OID Update Distribution list.

Reclassification Period: Approved changes will remain in effect for the remaining period of current occupation projections and through the following calendar period.

The occupation projection period begins September 1st and lasts for 12 months.

  • For example, if a change is approved on May 1, 2021, the updated classification will remain in effect until August 31, 2022 (16 months).
  • If, however, a change is approved November 1, 2021, the updated classification will remain in effect until August 31, 2023 (22 months).

After the reclassification period, unless updated with a new change request, the in-demand status will default to the classification based on the Employment Security Department’s updated occupation projections and WFC local area adjustments.

Annual Update: Each year, when new occupation projections are released, typically in August, WFC will send out the updated draft OID list, including WFC local area adjustment, and persisting reclassification changes to the OID Update Distribution list. This update is intended to give subscribed partners and employers an advanced opportunity to review and submit any change requests as needed.

*This is dependent on the volume of change requests, clarity of rational, and supporting evidence provided. All decisions for change requests made in the month August will be delayed until the first week of September.
