There are many anecdotes in the media today of employers across a range of industries wanting to hire more people, but not being able to find them: trucking companies facing driver shortages, retailers and restaurants being short-staffed, and construction companies and manufacturers encountering a limited supply of skilled or STEM-educated applicants.
The Conference Board has been reporting on labor market shortages for the past 5 years. Labor shortages are now a reality, not just a prediction. With unemployment at historic lows and Baby Boomers retiring in hordes, companies are struggling to recruit and retain workers. We have been asked many times: What should our company do? How can we find the talent we need at reasonable cost? How do we retain our current employees?
To help answer these pressing questions, we’d appreciate your participation in The Conference Board's first-ever Labor Shortages Solutions Survey. This 15-minute survey, covering both recruitment and retention solutions, is targeted to hiring managers and directors or talent management professionals in your organization.
