Are Good Employees Hard to Find?
According to a recent survey some small businesses may not be hiring because of a lack of desirable applicants.
The study, conducted by Manpower Group, polled businesses in the US and in 39 other countries. Apparently a little over half of American small businesses report they are unable to find qualified employees. Around the world the figure drops to one-third. Respondents reported the most difficult positions to fill were technicians, sales representatives and skilled trades workers, engineers and laborers.
It is critical for small businesses to have a skilled, efficient and well-trained team of employees. Many small businesses are having difficulty hiring the type of employees they want and need. It is surprising with such a high rate of unemployment that many of the jobless may just be unqualified.
