AGE BREAKDOWN OF
PRSM SUPPLIER MEMBERS
The membership base, on average, is older in 2017 than
it was in 2011, with 44% over age 50, compared to
37% in 2011.

Industry research, like PRSM's
Supplier Talent Acquisition and Retention
2016 Benchmarking Report and the
accompanying checklist provide specific
retail FM industry tools to improve
recruitment and retention.

FEDERAL FUNDING
The federal government must also
recognize the importance of the skills
gap crisis, and the current administration
has promised to increase funding for
vocational training, which is an important
first step. Funding can make training
more affordable and increase the number
of training opportunities. However,
without an organized effort by FM
industry representatives, these funds will
be used to train non-FM career fields.
The skills gap crisis is growing wider
and deeper every day. As the FM industry
becomes more complex and technologybased, the demand for advanced skills
will increase. It will require a coordinated
effort by the industry, educational
institutions and the government to
address the issue. l
