The annual Talent Shortage Survey from ManpowerGroup, an HR consulting organization, has just been released. In 2014, the most difficult jobs to fill include skilled trade workers, laborers, and engineers. Finance and accounting professionals are also tough to fund. A post on Forbes.com states that 45 percent of employers polled say they could better serve their clients if the talent shortage eased. Another interesting fact in the survey is that 37 percent of participants admit their competitiveness and productivity have decreased because of the lack of talent.
