Middle market companies are competing against enterprises for an increasingly tight supply of skilled workers. COVID put the talent gap crisis into sharp relief, but experts have been warning companies about this for years.
A recent survey commissioned by RSM found out that:
- Hiring is a challenge for nearly all middle market companies, and needed skills are in short supply
- Existing workers are being burned out, creating a vicious cycle of employee turnover
- Companies are being hardest hit in their most critical areas
- Outsourcing/managed services can solve talent gaps and other middle market pain points
