While there is much debate around the water cooler and elsewhere about the cause of the current employment gap, one thing is clear: Unprecedented labor shortages continue to weigh down the U.S. economy, resulting in higher prices, delayed deliveries, supply chain issues, and a struggle for businesses to meet demand.
According to the latest data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were over 11.2 million job openings. In the manufacturing industry, there were an estimated 790,000 job openings, yet there were just 491,000 unemployed in that same industry. In retail trade, the gap is even wider - With 1.14 million job openings and 720,000 unemployed, there is a labor supply deficit of 420,000 people.
One way many businesses are addressing the labor shortage is a renewed push for increased efficiency and automation through technology. Finding the right software platform to do more with your current workforce is more important than ever.
