As we approach the end of the year it is worthwhile to consider the trends that we see this year and consider how we will address them. This is the first in a series of blogs examining these trends and how to plan for next year with these trends in mind. This first article discusses the crisis in staffing. In the coming months, we will address other industry trends that we see.
