Staffing Shortages Aren't New
That doesn’t make recovery any easier. The tight talent market ramped up just before the COVID-19 pandemic and has only worsened since. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, there were more open positions from late 2019 into early 2020 than Americans available to fill them. Finding the right applicants with the experience and skills necessary to fill a company’s vacancies has never been more challenging.
Why Is There a Talent Shortage?
U.S. businesses looking to hire in many industries are having a difficult time finding qualified candidates. According to John Brennan, Forbes contributor and Chief Strategy, Innovation & Acceleration Officer for Willis Towers Watson, contributing factors include lagging labor participation rates, high turnover levels, an aging population, and lack of engagement. The solutions to consider for this pervasive shortage are to focus on culture and employee, experience, helping employees build relevant skills, exploring the options AI offers, and taking a creative approach to hiring.
