THE JIM STROUD PODCAST | Human Cloning: The Answer to Talent Scarcity
#2 | Earlier this year, something extraordinary was being reported in the news. For the first time in American history, there were more jobs than people out of work. To be specific, in June 2018, there were 6.7 million job openings but only just 6.4 million available workers to fill them; this according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employers have been complaining for years about the inability to find workers with the right training for the positions available. In the meantime, companies are adding other incentives to retain workers and pull new ones in. As the demand grows, workers have gotten more confident about leaving their current positions for better ones. So, what is HR to do? One solution might be… Human Cloning!
