  • Manpower Group Survey on Talent Shortage

    Manpower Group issued a press release in May of 2012 outlining the results of a survey they conducted on U.S. and global talent shortages. The survey found that out of the 1,300 US employers surveyed they have the most difficulty filling skilled trade positions, engineering positions and IT staff.

    Manpower suggests that businesses look into developing workforce strategies and begin building partnerships with the educational systems in their areas. This is exactly what Go Build Georgia aims to do for the state.

    We have a strong Technical College System of Georgia that each host an array of programs to help people get the training they need to gain meaningful employment. As Georgia businesses and schools bridge together we will see our workforce pipeline become strong for generations to come.
