Skills gap survey needs your input

From Crain’s Cleveland Business 10/7/18

Do you have jobs available you aren’t able to fill with qualified workers? If you do, you’re not alone.

Crain’s Rachel Abbey McCafferty reported last week that 99% of manufacturers surveyed by Tooling U-SME said finding skilled new workers is a problem.

That’s not just a talent gap, it’s a canyon.

And it’s not limited to manufacturing. In the same issue of Crain’s Cleveland Business, Stan Bullard wrote that securing skilled workers is the chief concern in Northeast Ohio’s construction and real estate industry, according to a recent Skoda Minotti survey.

How is your industry faring in today’s tight labor market? Are you having difficulty recruiting for certain positions?

College Now Greater Cleveland wants to hear your experiences as part of its “Bridging the Talent Gap” survey, which it’s conducting in partnership with Team Northeast Ohio and the Cleveland Indians (who, by the way, have all the talent they need to bring home the World Series this year ).
