Upskilling – Dr. M. Ray Perryman

Published in syndication on January 29, 202

https://www.perrymangroup.com/

The labor market is tight. Very tight! The number of US job openings is a million higher than the total number of unemployed persons. In Texas, the unemployment rate stands at about 3.5%, and the state continues to add jobs in impressive numbers.
With few people to hire, finding needed skillsets is a growing challenge. Further complicating the situation is the fact that the requirements of companies are changing rapidly with technological advances. PwC recently surveyed more than 22,000 workers and found that 53% of them believe automation will significantly change or render their jobs obsolete within the next 10 years.
Shortages and skills mismatches are a large and growing problem, and part of the answer is “upskilling,” or giving people the chance to learn what they need to fill open or future jobs. While training (or retraining) is not a new idea, the difference is that firms are now increasingly embracing and paying for upskilling, investing billions in training their current workers rather than trying to hire new ones.
In addition to saving companies the difficult task of finding and luring new employees, upskilling also allows corporations to fulfill emerging objectives. As firms move away from a singular focus on shareholder value and toward broader social concerns, employees are an important stakeholder group which benefits from upskilling. It’s a win-win, with workers avoiding the upheaval associated with losing a job and firms retaining valuable workers. People are willing, with the PwC survey indicating that 77% of adults would learn new skills now or completely retrain to improve their future employability. Similarly, learning opportunities and chances for professional growth are a top reason cited by new hires in job decisions.
Not every effort at upskilling has been successful. Unless employees have the appropriate incentives (such as higher compensation or expanded opportunities), they may not participate. If methods of delivering new information are inconvenient, overly time-consuming, or poorly structured, they may not be successful. There are also instances where the mismatch between existing employees and new required skills is such that the investment is not cost-effective. Nonetheless, well-conceived programs can yield impressive results.
Worker shortages are likely to get worse (potentially far worse) even with labor-saving automation and artificial intelligence. The number of people of workforce age is basically static due to demographic patterns, labor force participation rates are stubbornly low, and immigration is declining. Throughout history, technological advances have on balance created jobs, but in the process have displaced those without needed qualifications. The US has generally failed in public policy initiatives to provide transitional training (much to our detriment). Hiring talent is increasingly difficult, and upskilling is likely to be a crucial strategy for many firms.

The Perryman Group: US-Mexico-Canada Agreement a Major Win for the Economy

The Perryman Group Estimates US Economy 600,000 Jobs Larger with the USMCA

January 30, 2020

https://www.perrymangroup.com/media/uploads/briefs/perryman-us-mexico-canada-agreement-a-major-win-for-the-economy-01-2020.pdf

President Trump has signed the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) into law, replacing the 25-year old North American Free Trade Agreement. A strong

trade agreement with Mexico and Canada is clearly a “win” for the US economy. Mexico has also passed the USMCA, and the ratification process is currently underway in Canada.

The USMCA ensures the free flow of trade, protecting business ties among the three nations. For example, cross-border supply chains are quite common along the borders, with certain aspects of production occurring in each country depending on relative comparative advantages. Without a trade agreement, such arrangements and other imports and exports would become more difficult and more costly in that trade would revert to tariff schedules provided by each country to the World Trade Organization (WTO).

The Perryman Group compared a scenario with the USMCA in place to one where the US, Canada, and Mexico trade under the terms of the listed tariffs with the WTO. For the United States, The Perryman Group estimates that having the USMCA in place leads to an additional $64.9 billion in gross product and almost 600,900 jobs compared to trading under the terms of the WTO stated tariffs. In Texas, the annual gross product will be a projected $17.6 billion higher and employment 164,700 higher under the USMCA. For California, The Perryman Group estimates that the USMCA will likely lead to $6.2 billion in gross product and almost 58,700 jobs compared to current WTO tariffs.

Clearly, the USMCA is good for the US economy, particularly in trade-intensive border states such as California and Texas.
