From IT businesses to manufacturers, U.S. companies share a growing dilemma: not enough skilled workers to fill job vacancies and a struggle to retain the ones they already employ. Many executives believe this reality stands to worsen. That’s why they are looking to strategic workforce planning (SWP) to help address and resolve skills shortages and rapid staff turnover.
Companies across the U.S. are struggling to fill talent shortages of individuals with specific skills at a time when technological developments, quickly evolving workplace norms, and the continuing fallout from the 2008-09 global financial crisis have caused dramatic changes to the workforce of today.
U.S. companies are complaining loudly about their staffing problems. They cannot find people with the skills they need, they lament. And it is very hard to predict staffing requirements when technological disruptions can lead to rapid changes in markets, business models and the way that individual departments work.
