Competition for Skilled Labor
There has been a lot of competition for skilled labor
from different countries and among different industries. However, a survey done
in 2011 indicated that this competition has been on decline in the U.S. Most of
this competition is from European countries. However skilled immigrants prefer
to work in the U.S as compared to European countries. Most immigrants view U.S
as having an improved labor and a better economy as compared to most European
countries. Competition for the human resources, particularly skilled labor, is
more common among large organizations. High-tech industries are the leaders in
demand for skilled immigrant workers. The large organizations and high-tech industries
lead in the global competition for skilled labor due to the high number of
workers required to fill different positions.
According to a survey done in 2012 by society for human
resource management (SHRM), 13% of organizations are facing global competition
in filling positions for skilled personnel (Maurer, May 4th, 2013).
Almost a quarter of these organizations hire workers outside the U.S. About 24%
of the organizations experiencing the global competition for skilled workers
