I have read alot about the coming Labor shortage or the coming talent shortage. I certainly believe it, for a number of different reasons.. baby boomer retirement, fewer people in the next age wave, the diminishing quality of education, just to name a few. This appears to be felt more in “craftsman” type of companies.. everywhere I go I see “Now Hiring” signs for plumbers, electricians, HVAC technicians, pest control, and others.
What do you think? Are you experiencing this talent shortage in your company? How are you dealing with it?
