2018 Demographic Research

As a direct response to the industry’s concerns about recruitment and retention, the Institute started conducting workforce demographic research in 2007. These research reports have been invaluable to industry employers as they develop and implement their HR strategies. The reports also inform the initiatives of the Institute’s Career Connections program, and influence the educational offerings of the Institute. The latest 2017-2018 research reports will be published this fall.
