  12. 12. Click to edit Master title style • Transition slide title What is the skills gap? The skills gap is a perceived mismatch between the needs of employers for skilled talent and the skills possessed by the available workforce. - The American Staffing Association
  13. 13. 13 The Business Roundtable, a respected organization whose members are the CEOs of the nation's 250 largest firms, recently surveyed membership and found 97% claim the skills gap is a serious "challenge" to their firm. Hubspot, a Boston based web marketing firm, was recently so concerned about the skills gap that it instituted an employee referral program for software developers where if an employee referred a software developer who was hired, and stayed six months, the employee who referred the software developer got a $30,000 bonus! What is the skills gap?
  14. 14. 14 • Nearly nine million people are actively seeking employment. • Nearly five million jobs are going unfilled. • Only six out of 10 working-age individuals are employed or seeking a job. • U.S. employers are taking nearly 25 working days fill open positions. • The average time to fill IT positions is now 70 days.

  16. 16. 16 Causes of the skills gap
  17. 17. 17 • The world of competency-based credentials is confusing, making it difficult for employees and employers to know the validity of many credentials or the skills they embody. • Education opportunities in many regions do not align with the regional job markets, with mismatches occurring between job training programs and needs. • Many companies may be missing qualified job applicants because their screening systems rely too much on traditional measures such as educational attainment and length of years in the workforce.

  18. 18. 18 The New York Times editorial board ran an editorial on 13 June, 2013 that said the skills gap was "mostly corporate fiction" created by employers who are either too selective in who they hire, too stingy with wages or are not willing to offer comprehensive corporate training and development.    Peter Capelli, University of Pennsylvania professor and author of "Why Good People Can't Get Good Jobs" claims that he "laughs out loud" at the idea of a skills gap because he tracks no increase in wages or lengthening of the work week, two things that would happen if there were a skills gap.
