Powering the human element of safety strategy

Attracting, developing, and keeping safety talent is a growing challenge facing organizations today. Experts predict a dramatic shortfall between the increasing need for safety professionals and the number of qualified candidates who will be available to fill these roles. Changing demographics have created greater competition for talent. In safety we are now seeing "inverted bell curves" where talent is weighted heavily at senior and primary positions, with insufficient qualified succession pools at mid-levels.
