The population is projected to double by 2050, creating a huge demand for hourly professionals. How huge? The U.S. Department of Labor estimates hourly occupations will increase 50% between 2012-2022. That’s five times more than overall job growth.
The turnover rate for hourly workers is about 50%. Also, about 75% of hourly staff have less than a year of on-the-job experience. This not only causes HR headaches, it interferes with quality of service.
In 2016, approximately 70% of surveyed HR administrators cited skilled staff shortages as one of the top three threats to the future growth of their business.
