LaSalle Network Publishes White Paper “Rethinking the Skills Gap”

White paper introduces resourceful strategies for alleviating the skills gap

Chicago, Ill. March 19, 2015 – LaSalle Network released today its white paper “Rethinking the Skills Gap,” which outlines resourceful strategies companies can use to mitigate the negative effects of the skills gap.

Nearly 98 percent of CEOs say the skills gap threatens their business because they aren’t able to fill job vacancies. One in four companies report losing revenue because positions are open so long. The economy is recovering, but businesses can’t find the talent they need.

The skills gap affects companies and candidates alike, and there isn’t one easy solution to the root causes. Yet companies need to take action today to ensure growth doesn’t suffer.

“Rethinking the Skills Gap” details how companies can creatively alleviate the skills gap by valuing candidates’ soft skills, hiring for temporary and temporary-to-permanent positions, and investing in job training for new hires. This white paper will help companies take immediate and effective action to prevent the skills gap from hurting their workforce.
