Lessons from the best.
The good news – unemployment is at it’s lowest in a decade. The bad news? In a labor market already driven by candidates, more and more employers are finding that these candidates lack the skills necessary to fill their needs.
The skills gap is a complicated problem. That’s why we asked America’s Best-in-Class companies what they thought about it. Long story short, 80 percent of business leaders acknowledge that the skills gap is a real issue they face in their organization.
Our white paper, “Mind the Skills Gap” takes an in-depth look at the skills shortage and provides guidance for business leaders looking to remain competitive in our emerging economy. Some of the topics we explore in this valuable resource include:
- The specific work skills that executives feel that are hard to find
- The factors that are causing the skills gap
- How the situation is impacting different sectors and industries
- Solutions employers and educators can use to solve the shortage
- And more!
The shortage of available talent with job-related skills is only going to get worse as more jobs are created, more seasoned Baby Boomers retire and the unemployment rate continues to drop. If you want to move your company over the gap, you need to start today.
