Complexity + Full Employment = Retention and Recruitment Challenges!

As we look forward to the beginning of 2019, here's a fairly recent trend I've noticed.

1) The world is getting more technical and interconnected so the systems that support this trend are growing in complexity.

2) The U.S. is a full employment economy for people who can contribute product advances in technical disciplines.

3) As one result, retention and recruitment are even greater challenges than they have been before.

4) In response, growing numbers of technical companies are seeking university partnerships to develop their people and to build a pipeline of new candidates.

Since our mission is to advance knowledge to benefit society, my University welcomes these partnerships.  They create opportunities for our students and help support life long learning for working professionals.
