According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of social and community service managers is projected to grow 17 percent from 2019 to 2029. This growth is expected to be much faster than the average growth rate for all occupations. Specific to the human services field, employment of community and social service specialists is likely to increase by 14 percent in that same period.

 

As facilities grow in physical size and population, so must their employee base expand to serve the needs of their residents and the guest who visit them.

Top Industry Challenges

Workforce shortages  – Wholesale manufacturers still face record numbers of unfilled jobs, which limit productivity and growth

Need for analytics – Manufacturers need an accurate view of key indicators (KPIs) to manage raw inventory levels, stay on top of transportation costs, and plan around customer demands outpacing supply.

Supply chain disruptions – Manufacturers face near continuous disruptions globally – the effect is added costs and slower performance

Improve margins – Manufacturers must continuously protect their margins. Areas of focus are sourcing, pricing, and supply chain

Forecasting – Uncertainty makes it difficult to predict how much to make and adapt to customer demands.

Tired Technology -  Many manufacturers operate with fragmented, legacy business management systems. Modernizing ERP systems has become a priority for the sector to take advantage of emerging technologies.
