Why are work force demographics fueling the rapid growth of the WOMEN@WORK NETWORK?
By 2017, the U.S. will see a shortfall of 12 million college-educated workers. At that time 18 million jobs will require college-educated workers, but the declining number of college graduates will not support that need. Further compounding the problem is the fact that over the next 15 years there will be a 15% decline in the number of 35 to 44-year-olds (traditionally the hottest demographic target for new workforce talent)--and one-fifth of large, established U.S. companies will lose 40% or more of their top-level talent just within the next five years.
One of the fastest-growing workforce demographics is 45 to 64-year-olds--and the current and returning professional women in our network are in or nearing that demographic. No other recruiting firm is wholly focused on high caliber women who not only very ably fill hiring gaps, but also help employers fulfill diversity initiatives.
