As we assess the workforce demands in Hawai'i, we know that we must not only provide access to education and training, but also encourage more students to pursue degrees in the fields that will be in demand in the future. We also know that the rising demand in certain occupational areas resulted from several demographic and economic factors, including:

  • a shift from low-skilled agriculture/ manufacturing jobs to higher-skilled services;
  • an aging workforce (more baby boomers are retiring);
  • the high cost of housing that makes importing workers prohibitive; and
  • declining number of high school graduates.
In looking ahead at the global economic and workforce demands indicated by the Hawai'i State Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DLIR) Employment Projections for 2008-2018, we are able to identify industry and occupational areas that need to be addressed in developing Hawai'i's workforce. According to the report, the major industry that is expected to lead Hawaii's job expansion is education and health services with a 15.8 percent growth (or 20,220 new jobs by the year 2018). The state's third largest industry division, leisure and hospitality, is predicted to add 4,590 jobs by 2018, increasing at a slower rate of 4.3 percent.

Jobs in the professional and related occupations group are projected to increase the fastest in Hawai'i, by 10.8 percent and produce an average of 4,390 job openings each year, according to the Hawai'i DLIR report on employment projections. This group includes health care practitioners and technical occupations. Another large workforce demand to fill will come from the service group, poised to grow 9.1 percent over the ten-year period, creating a total of 6,340 job openings each year. This group includes personal care and service jobs, as well as food preparation and serving related positions. All of these occupations require some post-secondary education and training, an associate's degree or bachelor's degree.

The charts below provide a glimpse of Hawai'i's workforce demands in the future. For more details, visit the state's Hawai'i Workforce Infonet website for Hawai'i's Long-term Projections, 2008-2018, report.
