The tightening of the US labor market is very visible on a macro level but less well defined for specific occupations. While the United States as a whole is experiencing labor shortages, not every organization and occupation has been equally affected. In addition, the main drivers that affect the development of labor shortages in each occupation vary greatly.

Join our expert economists as they reveal our new Occupational Labor Shortages Index and discuss:

  • In which occupations of the almost 500 available labor shortages will be most severe, or at risk of a shortage, over the next decade;
  • Why labor shortages are more visible in blue-collar and manual services occupations than in white-collar jobs; and
  • A set of solutions from our Labor Shortages Solutions Survey to identify the actions companies can take.

Who Should Attend: Talent acquisition, recruiting, strategic workforce planning, and other HR-related functions; economists
