Training vs Talent

"The average commitment per employee, according to 60 Minutes, is about 18 months, at a cost of $60,000." It always will be a gap between the knowledge gained from the universities, and the knowledge is needed by the market. So a good practice instead of looking for the "talents" to invest in training  employees with strong will. Of course, the cost is too much, but it can be regulated if we choose alternatives solutions (there are plenty of educational tools without cost)

What we need is to have the private and public training institutes to orient their courses or design new courses to match the newly created job opportunities or the modified job profiles of the existing jobs because of the changed work scenario- more automation, new communication channels -email, chat,sms , new logistics methodologies and so on.

 

Unless the education sector quickly reinvents itself with the new job scenario there will be always a contrast between what manpower is available and what kind of manpower industry wants

@Rich: I think people are very dynamic when it comes to filling gaps in the job market and there can't be surplus or shortages in terms of human resources in an industry for a very long time. If there's an industry that pays well and there's a shortage of skilled labor, people will acquire skills and enter the market. Similarly, when there's an excess supply, the wages will go down forcing people to switch away to other jobs.

@Barbara: What do you think are some of the skills and qualifications students can acquire if they want to enter the supply chain industry and fill in the gap? Do you think prior experience plays a role when it comes to landing into good supply chain jobs?

Making most of situation

There is no need to worry. One should make most out of available situation. It is art and science of finding and cultivating suitable person required for organization. But they are always available. Perhaps they may be able to contribute much more as compare to your expectation.
