THE ISSUE IS CLEAR: SUPPLY VS. DEMAND
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 elsewhere — another company, another market, another state. 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 size of the U.S. labor force of workers ages 25-54 will remain basically flat 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 find, attract, hire, manage, and retain workers?
John Martin and Matt Thornhill have a powerful and effective new program that can be delivered as a keynote speech or in a longer workshop format — customized by industry, organization or region. We have identified the key traits of winning workplaces of today and the best practices from companies that every leader should know.
Here's a recent video blog post on the issue:
