INDIANAPOLIS — While nearly half of employers are still leaving jobs unfilled, dramatically fewer are listing workforce/talent needs as among their biggest challenges. Instead, they are adapting to the ongoing shortage of qualified applicants in several different ways.
The findings are part of the 12th annual employer workforce survey from the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and its Institute for Workforce Excellence. There were 1,005 responses from 89 of Indiana’s 92 counties during the Aug. 5-27 survey period. Skillful Indiana was the lead partner, with additional support from Amatrol and WGU Indiana.
