- The supply chain industry is failing to attract millennials. Because of that, there will be a talent shortage in about a decade if nothing changes.
- With more baby boomers hitting retirement age, it is important for a supply chain industry employer to understand what is necessary to win a millennial employee over.
- Yet when surveyed, only about 25% of companies told EyeforTransport that there was a need to reflect millennial values in onboarding practices.
To solve this employment gap, supply chain industries should take a broader look at finding and cultivating the talent pool.
Across many industries, millennial candidates are not considered by employers who favor more experienced workers. The supply chain industry is no different, particularly when it comes to requirements around advanced higher education credentials.
In order to open this door, supply chain companies will have to follow the lead of industries that seek skilled and talented candidates and position them to grow into their roles.
