Challenge of finding enough employees remains for some industries in New Hampshire

As the challenge of finding enough employees remains for some industries in New Hampshire, a state department is advancing a first-of-its-kind data-driven study to fill in the gaps and help local employers. Although in some areas and with certain employers the worker shortage is easing, in others it is not, and that still makes for a difficult situation, said Taylor Caswell, commissioner of the New Hampshire Business and Economic Affairs Department. To gather and interpret the data, the state is working with an economic development services firm out of Saratoga Springs, New York, called Camoin Associates.
