In the past few months, have you found yourself doing any of the following:
Wondering where you will find your next well-qualified technician or how to train the ones you have
Feeling overwhelmed by all the new technologies out there
Worrying about how you will deal with people retiring from your team or switching jobs
If you’ve experienced any of those thoughts or emotions, you are not alone.
The world of work has changed. The world of operations even more so.
And these things will continue to change.
Your workforce is in a major state of change because of the skills gap, labor shortage, rise in technology use and more.
Here are some statistics to drive that home:
There are 7.6 million unfilled jobs with only 6.5 million looking for work
50% of facility managers are expected to retire in the next 10 years
80% of Americans agree there is a skills gap
95% of organizations agree a digital workplace is important
For the first time in history, 5 generations are represented in the workplace
Some of those may be hard to swallow, but don’t lose hope.
This time of change is in fact a time of great opportunity for operations professionals like yourself.
What if you could use this time of change to hone in on the common threads you share with your workforce to turn uncertainty into motivation for growth?
What if you could use technology to find new ways to be efficient and grow the capabilities of you and your team?
What if you were a part of leaving a legacy that shapes the place you work and trains future operations leaders?
