Yep, the mass exodus of talent that has left us has caused a dramatic fracture in the available talent pool.
We are trying so hard to fill in the holes left by previous employees that we will just about accept anything in an attempt to keep the most basic of service level standards being offered to our customers.
It should be noted that this is absolutely not reserved to just the automotive industry. On a recent traditional Friday night order-in meal with my son, I had an urge to consume some synthetic sustenance that would no doubt leave me feeling guilty after the fact but, such is life.
As the after effects of the feeling of guilt were setting in prior to even placing an order, I wanted to comfort myself and trick my mind into what I was about to order in the fact that I was actually going to get up, drive to the commercial real estate where they mass produce processed “food” and place my order.
