By 2025, there won’t be enough college-educated Californians in the workforce to meet business needs, according to a new study by the Public Policy Institute of California.

Among the factors cited by the think tank’s study: the growing number of baby boomers who will be retiring and the outflow of college-educated residents California has experienced since 2000.

The study also cited the growth of Latinos as a percentage of the working-age populations. Latinos still lag behind many other ethnic groups in their rate of college education.

Final note:
Smart employers will have to boost their training and development programs to ensure they will have enough employees to fill open positions. They may also want to consider signing up to have a university deliver on-site classes as part of degree-completion programs for employees.
