Help Wanted: Buffalo CEOs say the region is falling short on hiring
Help still wanted – Buffalo CEOs fall short on hiring
BUFFALO, N.Y. (The Buffalo News) — Don Levy, director of the Siena College Research Institute, calls it the “workforce blues.”
Put simply, employers struggle to fill job openings – even as they feel upbeat about their growth prospects.
Levy quantified the problems Buffalo Niagara CEOs say they are having with hiring, based on the Siena Institute’s survey of 105 CEOs in the Buffalo Niagara region.
Dottie Gallagher, president and CEO of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, said she was surprised that across upstate, even as many as 13% of employers in the survey said there was an ample supply of workers to hire from, given how often Partnership members raise the worker shortage issue.
As family and friends come together to celebrate Labor Day and honor the working men and women who are the lifeblood of our economy, it seems appropriate to reflect on the kind of workforce our community needs now and in the future.
