Two tales about the search for talent

As a follow up to Saturday’s review of Leadership Solutions, two quick stories.

A college prof just organized an event for students to mix and mingle with recent grads and employers. One of the employers came to the event with 150 jobs that can’t be filled. Not enough qualified candidates and too much competition.

At the same time, four colleges have joined forces to help a major employer in Ontario with major workforce planning issues (more details soon). Somewhere in the neighbourhood of 50% of the workforce will be retiring in the near future. Replacing those employees will be a priority for the employer, which plays a pivital role in the economic growth and prosperity of the province.

Whoever comes up with a quick and easy way to solve workplace planning and staffing issues and builds a talent pipeline will do very, very well for themselves.
