Print Industry Recruiting Challenges
There is an exciting revolution happening in printing today. The industry entered 2018 with sales of $84 billion, a 9.1 percent increase over the industry low during The Great Recession. And despite a decades-long trend of consolidation, new companies are entering the market at a rapid pace. While the industry has lost nearly 7,000 companies since 2007, the rate of growth in new firms averaged 5.6 percent annually.
This upward trend is energizing, and it means demand for talent has never been higher. However, given the trends of the last 30 years, the supply of qualified talent in print communications has never been more scarce.
According to the Idealliance 2017 State of the Industry report, the biggest human resources challenges facing printers today include:
- Finding skilled sales talent
- Recruiting and retaining capable young talent to replenish an aging workforce
- Developing the next generation of company leaders
