The Truth about Worker Shortage
One of the reasons that we cannot simply ignore the labor shortage is the fact that this is not going to stop anytime soon. The vast majority of surveyed contractors said that they are having a hard time finding qualified workers, and most of those said that they believe it will be as mad as it is – or even worse – for at least the next year.
This can have a much bigger impact than people outside of the industry might realize. For example, almost half of contractors report that they are increasing their pay rates, one in three says they are offering better incentives and bonuses, and about one quarter said they are increasing contributions to benefits programs for their contractors.
This is great news for the workers, but it does mean higher costs, and those higher costs trickle down to affect everyone in the supply chain.
Spending Money on Training Can Be Well Worth It
Another issue that contractors report is that even when they do find workers, those workers are largely untrained and not ready for the workforce. This can create problems for everyone on the job – including safety problems. For this reason, more companies are investing in training. This can be money well spent when it leads to fewer accidents, but it is still money that is being spent.
