There aren't enough workers across all skill levels available for all the jobs in America today.

The only way any company, organization, or region can grow is by attracting workers (actually, "stealing workers") from someone else. It's happening across all regions, all company sizes, all employers, in all industries. It's an all-out war for workers.


Worse, finding and hiring good workers will be a problem for the foreseeable future, too. According to new data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. labor force will consist of slightly more than 103 million workers ages 16-to-54 through 2026.


The only increase in available workers over that time will be among those ages 55 and older. It's the Baby Boomers inflating that age segment, and thankfully, staying in the labor force.

So what can a leader do? How can you win the war for workers?
