“It is increasingly difficult for Italian companies to find a workforce,” says Confartigianato, who explains that the data causes “entrepreneurs’ alarm at a phenomenon that is widespread throughout Italy and in all sectors, from traditional to commercial activities. digital and high-tech.

Affects all sectors and regions

In particular, the greatest demand refers to technicians specialized in metal carpentry (70.5% of hard-to-find workers), in construction (69.9%), in the management of facilities and machinery (56.6% ). At the regional level, the companies with the greatest difficulties in finding workers operate almost all in the north: Trentino-Alto Adige, with 61.6%; ahead of Valle d’Aosta (57.1%), Umbria (54.6%), Friuli-Venezia Giulia (53.3%), Emilia-Romagna (52.7%), Piedmont (52%) and Veneto ( 51.4%).

Although, explains Confartigianato, who represents more than 700,000 entrepreneurs, “Hand Shortage is a Growing Emergency In the last year, the proportion of hard-to-find workers INCREASED 9.1 POINTS IN the South, 6.9 points in the center, 7.4 points in the northwest and 6.5 points in the northeast.

The causes of the lack of manpower are due in 32.4% of cases to a lack of candidates and 10.8% to inadequate preparation, he adds. “The labor shortage has become one of the biggest problems for our companies. We are faced with a paradox: there is work, there is a lack of workers. And, meanwhile, 1.7 million young people between the ages of 15 and 29 do not study, are not trained or are looking for a job. At this rate, we are playing the future of ‘made in Italy’”, assured the president of Confartigianato, Marco Granelli, in a statement.

According to Granelli, “the real problem of the country must be urgently addressed: the creation of quality employment”, for which “an economic and cultural policy is needed that brings schools closer to the world of work, to train young people”, relaunching “professional and technical institutes”.
