Mimeo’s Talk of the Trade kindly invited ESI to participate in their podcast series. This series discusses success stories of marketing and sales. This episode tackles the global shortage of sales talent, how it impacts employers everywhere and what they might be able to do about it.
ESI Co-Founder & CEO Alan Maguire joins host Mike McNary who is Mimeo’s SVP of Acquisition. This is a lively discussion on an issue that is impacting employers globally.
Their conversation includes:
The fact that sales roles are the hardest for employers to fill – dwarfing the higher-profile shortage of tech talent
How this problem has been building for years and why it is more acute than ever
The emergence of sales as a highly-skilled profession in contrast with common perceptions of sales as a career option
What can employers do to address the issue – both in the short & the long-term
