Small-business Owners: We Want To Hire, But We Just Can’t Find ‘Certified’ Workers

Is there really a shortage of skilled workers designed for hire? Small-business owners certainly seem to think so. Some 24% of small-business owners said finding qualified workers is their single biggest problem, according for an April survey by the National Federation of Independent Business. That’s just one single point below a record high. Nearly three-fifths of the small businesses surveyed last month said they hired or tried to hire more workers, but 86% reported “few or no qualified candidates for positions these were aiming to fill,” the NFIB said.

Some economists contend the problems in regards to a skills difference is overstated which companies may find more workers if they boosted pay and benefits. The NFIB counters that the pace of increase in compensation has already been near an archive high among small-business owners. The small-business lobbying group has been performing its survey since 1973. Government’s figures show that compensation is increasing at the fastest pace in ten years. The U.S. unemployment rate fell to a 50-12 months low of 3.6% last month and the pace of layoffs each week quickly dipped below 200,000 for the first time since 1969, reflecting an exceptionally tight labor market. Some however, not all of the people who dropped out of the work force during or following the Great Recession of 2007-2009 have reentered. If more were to rejoin Even, though, they might need retraining to burnish skills eroded by their long stints on the sidelines.

Also I pointed out that, project stakeholders are extremely comfortable when there is only one point of contact for them, right from the initiation of task till closure. It is beneficial in building trust with them which in turn helps in every kind of project negotiations. Jack of two trades! Organizations are receiving smarter in conserving costs and attaining efficiency at the same time.

Bringing in two personal in a task can boost their costs with same time they don’t know which to avoid. So, their take on cost-effectiveness is to find someone who has converged expertise as a manager and an analyst. And therefore a chance to stand out and showcase a talent pool which increases your value and provides a broader publicity on the market.

Two edges of the same gold coin – success mantra! Corrective preventive steps is something we all look forward to avoid any failures. Cost, effort, and time are something are tracked and monitored world-wide and are correct health indicators for any project. Research in addition has proven that business analysis and management achieved in correct fashion gives better results. Hence, you will want to combine both and let that single individual with the best of his knowledge be responsible for achieving required targets. It is very true that it requires time for you to do both working jobs well. Certainly on “large” projects, it is a full-time job to manage the project and to manage the end-product requirements.

Trying to do both will most likely mean increasing the risk and compromising the quality of both the task and the end product. In such scenarios, my recommendation is to truly have a business lead Business Analyst and Project Manager that have a small team of analysts working under him. These experts act like plug-n-play and are only required on a need basis using phases of the task. At the same time, the business lead BA/PM is aware of all requirements and handling at the same time.
