Employer Experiences and Expectations: Finding, Training, and Keeping Qualified Workers
Perron, Rebecca
The graying of the labor force, together with the recession of 2008-2010, has forced employers and prognosticators to take a hard look at workforce preparation, training, and planning. This employer research survey is one component of a larger project that explores the workforce, labor force projections, and employer views on training, preparedness, and recruiting workers. Survey questions were developed after qualitative research with employers. This survey of 1,003 human resource directors was fielded from May through July 2010. Respondents were asked about their company's hiring practices, training, skill needs, and quality of job applicants, both before and since the recession. The author also explored their expectations for the future. Appended are: (1) Survey Methodology; and (2) Annotated Survey. (Contains 24 charts, 1 table and 2 footnotes.)
