In a recent study published by Manpower, they found that more employers than ever are struggling to fill open jobs. Forty-five percent say they can’t find the skills they need, and for large organizations (250+ employees) it’s even higher, with 67% reporting talent shortages in 2018.

It’s time for a new approach to the big talent problem: it’s time to build, buy, borrow and bridge to ensure we have the in-demand skills for today and tomorrow.
