Labor Shortage White Paper

In conjunction with the Association Education Alliance, PEI supported the development of this White Paper to address the challenges the industry is facing with the labor shortage. 

Finding and keeping talent is a top challenge for distributors, no matter the segment. And the challenge has grown even more severe with the tight labor market that emerged in 2018 and 2019. In fact, 94% of distributors and manufacturers surveyed for this report said they struggled to find the right people. This report looks more closely at the obstacles distributors have encountered in finding talent, and examines ways some have overcome them.
