Jobs are changing. Workforce growth is slowing. The population is aging. Educational attainment levels are lagging. Skill gaps are rising. Generations are clashing.
Any one of these events individually could trigger a significant problem for employers. But combined these workforce trends are creating the Perfect Labor Storm 2.0, unprecedented demographic and economic events that will force employers to change the way they do business.
In this completely revised and updated second-edition book, author Ira S. Wolfe creates a vivid and sometimes frightening image of what future workforces will look like through his use of trends, facts and statistics. He then offers recommendations for recruiting a younger workforce, managing intergenerational conflicts, and retaining workers.
