A Sustainable Workforce Starts With You

Global Skilled Workforce Shortage

According to MSN Careerbuilder, skilled workforce shortages are impacting employers across the globe as the world economy improves.

The latest Career Builder Survey was taken by employers in the ten largest economies in the world and the results are clear: “When asked which positions were the hardest to fill, employers cited technical fields -- information technology and engineering -- as being some of the most difficult. Other areas included sales, customer service, research and development, production, creative/design and marketing.”

This infographic illustrates the findings of the survey and points to the issue that we have been blogging about for the last two years. There is a skill set mismatch in our industry, and in others, that will exist for a number of years into the future.

We will continue to see the movement of entire work camps from country to country and city to city as the economies recover and expand. Now is the time to put education systems in place to train the much-needed workers of the future.
