What Keeps CEOs Awake at Night?

Topic

One leading talent acquisition company working in the tech sector found that in 2019 75% of companies had problems finding candidates and only 21% of employees worldwide were actively looking for a job. The McKinsey Global Institute projected that globally by 2020, 38 million to 40 million fewer workers with tertiary education (college or postgraduate degrees) than employers will need, or 13 percent of the demand for such workers.
