Focusing on Obstacles to Recruitment, Growth & Retention
The Georgia Forestry Foundation will soon receive results from a labor study for the forestry sector of Georgia conducted at The Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia. The study intends to help the industry gain a better understanding of:
- The labor needs of the sector
- Obstacles to recruiting, growth and retention of employees
- Benchmark forestry versus the rest of agriculture and manufacturing in Georgia
This study gathered information on current practices, employment data, and opinions on trends and solutions in the labor sector. Of critical importance is understanding the current and potential future obstacles to hiring, developing and retaining the top talent needed to remain a locally, regionally, and globally competitive industry.
