Abstract   |   Authors   |   References
The relevance of the research topic lies in the fact that the problem of labor shortage is currently being actively discussed in Russia. The formation and effective implementation of the country’s labor potential is hindered by a number of factors, we can highlight demographic, socio-economic, organizational, professional-qualification and educational ones among them. Taking into account the current situation in the labor market, the article discusses the key social factors of the risks of developing the deficit of qualified personnel in certain sectors of the economy and regions. The aim of the study is to identify and characterize the key risks provoking the deficit of highly qualified personnel in the country in the current conditions. Using general scientific means and methods of analysis and comparison, generalization of actual data and expert assessments, the authors came to the conclusion that along with the long-term reduction in the number of able-bodied persons, the level of qualification of Russian workers is deteriorating. This circumstance is connected with the slow adaptation of young workers, the instability of workers’ employment in certain sectors of the economy due to economic crises and social problems, and the rapid changes in the labor market itself. Development and investment in labor resources is essential for success in the modern world. The highest priority is given to qualified personnel with modern technologies and in-demand competencies. The availability of qualified personnel contributes to improving the quality of products or services, increasing productivity, reducing the risk of errors, strengthening competitiveness, development of innovations in enterprises and organizations. Enterprises’ investments in the improvement of personnel policy and corporate educational programs, the development of mentoring system is an important strategic step for successful development in the long term
