Yes. Recruitment and retention are an enduring task. We cannot afford to limit ourselves to a specific pool of candidates. In these challenging times many officers may not be willing to do anything more than they must. This will further limit the pool. Engage and recruit the younger generation and hopefully you can mentor them into an operator with longevity to sustain the team in the future.
