Workforce

Across nearly every key sector, particularly those sectors that have growth potential and that pay well, workforce is the number one obstacle to growth. It is probably the number one issue the keeps CEOs awake at night. With the majority of the baby boomers generation nearing retirement, there will be a large segment of the working population that rapidly disappears from the workforce. Influences like globalization, technology, the new economy, political change, and demographic shifts, compound this issue further.
