Fast Company Features ADP Research on Strategic Workforce Planning

In an article titled “New Research Points The Finger At Employers For The Widespread Talent Shortage,” Fast Company highlights the findings of the just released whitepaper – Strategic Drift: How HR Plans for Change.

“Many companies are experiencing a skills shortage, which we believe is caused by a number of factors, including the transition to a more transient workforce than in previous generations; a lack of training company employees to take on other tasks and transfer into new positions; and a failure to train younger staff to replace people when they retire.”
