Telecommunications Hiring Challenges
Retirement of Baby Boomers
The growing demand for skilled workers is not matched by an adequate supply. In Europe, the U.S. and Canada, the impending retirement of baby boomers is a critical challenge to the industry. The average growth of the 55's and above is estimated to be 4%, and the size of the labor force from the prime age group of 25 - 50 is set to decline by 7% up to 2020.
One in four employees in the Telecommunications Industry work in installation, maintenance and repair. It is critical those applicants are properly screened to mitigate risk as these front-line employees come in direct contact with customers, in the customer's own home or place of business.
