Overcoming the Labor Crisis with Innovative Hiring Strategies
There's a talent gap in the supply chain industry that has many industry leaders worried. It's not a new problem, but it is becoming increasingly urgent every year, especially as industry needs evolve. Although the strong growth predictions for 2018 have tapered off somewhat, there is still a significant demand for professionals at all levels, from entry-level employees to executives, and most supply chain organizations are having trouble finding enough qualified talent to fill those open roles.
There are three serious questions facing the supply chain industry:
- What's causing the talent shortage?
- What's happening in the industry and how will that affect your ability to fill high-demand roles?
- How can you overcome the challenges of sourcing, screening, and hiring the people you need?
According to Harvard Business Review, the supply chain industry currently comprises 44 million jobs and there are currently more open jobs than qualified candidates to fill them. That’s a broad estimate that includes both suppliers and supply chain services like truck drivers, computer programmers, and operations managers, but it is still a good starting point for understanding the extent of the talent shortage problem.
In this eBook, we'll take a look at the future of supply chain recruitment and at each of those questions to give you a big-picture view of what you can do to fill the open roles at your company.
