Over the last year as companies struggled to find good people to hire and fought at the same time to keep their best staff, I knew there had to be a story there. I began digging into the data and found some surprising and potentially alarming details: there is a real talent shortage globally, and in many cases it’s getting worse.
I began writing about my findings and soon realized that this was a problem that begged for solutions, so I gathered stories of companies that are hiring and retaining their people in creative ways. Today, I’m proud to announce that Talent Scarcity: How to Hire and Retain a Shrinking Workforce is now available on Amazon!
