Labor Shortage Mitigation

H Biz

Five years ago, HBI’s Christopher Dore gave a lecture to the Federation of Archaeological Managers and Employers (FAME). The U.K. was on the verge of an archaeological labor shortage and Dore was asked to talk about the lessons learned from the U.S. archaeological/CRM labor shortage of the middle 2000s, from approximately 2005-2007, and ending with the economic crisis or “great recession” in 2008. He presented things that U.K. firms could do, in advance, to minimize the problems that a labor shortage brings.

It is time to revisit those lessons.
