Every once in a while there is a post so brilliant it becomes the topic of what I write about, even pushing my editorial calendar back (yeah right :p). Such is the case with Utah Tech Jobs’ Robert Merrill’s recent post titled 4 Factors Creating Utah Workforce Funk. From the introduction:
There’s no question something interesting is happening with Utah’s professional/technical workforce right now, and I think there are no less than four competing factors at play any business-owner should be paying very close attention to:
He goes on to suggest the four factors are:
- Real and Wage Inflation
- Intense Competition for Talent
- Corporate cost-cutting
- High Energy/Commute Costs
First, it’s clear to me that this workplace funk is NOT just a Utah thing, and not limited to professionals and/or technical folks.
Second, Robert says this is something any “business owner should [pay] very close attention to.” And since YOU are CEO of Me, Inc., it’s obvious that YOU need to pay very close attention to these four factors.
I don’t have anything to add to Robert’s awesome post and analysis, and I hate to see you go somewhere else, but click on over to Utah Tech Jobs and check out this brilliant post… and consider what it means for YOU.
