New Century Workforce

SSPI conducts the only multi-company, multinational study of the satellite industry’s most vital resource: its workforce. 

The study combines in-depth interviews with human resources executives and the results of a global online survey of industry employees.  It explores recruitment and talent management, employee demographics, compensation trends and how engaged employees are in their work. Most important, it identifies where the industry’s approach to talent attraction and development is holding it back and what employers can do about it individually and together.

The workforce study is a key part of SSPI’s mission to attract the next generation of talent to one of the world’s most exciting industries, and to help companies nurture the leaders who will take that industry into the future.
