In ManpowerGroup’s 2012 annual talent shortage survey of nearly 40,000 employers in 41 countries and territories, skilled trades workers were once again identified as the most difficult position to fill globally with an average of three openings for each available skilled candidate. The skill trade shortage not only spans multiple geographies, but multiple industries as well touching advanced manufacturing, commodity driven industries and industrial industries.
While many of the demands for skill trades result from a combination of aging populations and industry growth, contrary to popular belief, the current situation skilled trades shortage could be largely solved by making the right talent more mobile. Therefore, it stands to reason that the skilled trades shortage doesn’t necessarily exist because of a numeric shortage of talent, but because of geography and lack of mobility of the right talent.
While talent mobility sounds like a simple solution, creating a more mobile skilled trades workforce is not as easy as it seems. Complications like immigration create the need for organizations to work with governments in order to allow skill trades workers into the countries where they are needed to fill economic demands – bringing growth and work to the economies and individuals who need it.
In this webinar you will learn:
•What are “skilled trades” and why is the talent so hard to find?
•Where does the current market shortage for skilled trades stand and why is it there?
•Solutions for addressing recruiting problems with skilled trades talent

In response to this complex world, European regulators thus have been hard at work.

Rapid response to suspect trades means compliance teams need to access and visualize trade patterns, real time and historic data, to navigate the data in depth and flag possible violations. Join Hortonworks and Arcadia for this live webinar: we’ll cover the use case at a top 50 Global Bank who now has deep forensic analysis of trade activity. The result: interactive, ad hoc data visualization and access across multiple platforms – without limits on historic data – to detect irregularities as they happen.Read more >
