Skill shortages to continue

A new report released by McCrindle Research indicates skills shortages and the associated workplace expectations of Generation Y will continue in the future.Many employers assume that skills shortages are the result of sixteen years of continued economic growth and the subsequent demand for staff.

However the problem stems from the fact that demand for staff is high while supply, particularly of young people, is low due to the ageing of the Australian population and the relative decline in the number of young people.

The report, Bridging the Gap, identifies trends in supply and demand in the employment sector and offers advice for both employers and employees.

The author of the report, Mark McCrindle, will be running half-day Bridging the Gap Workshops for industry associations, employer groups and employees.
