MRAA's Marine Industry Workforce Assessment
Share |

More than 20 percent of the positions that marine dealers budgeted to have on their payrolls in 2016 are currently unfilled. This alarming number represents one of the key findings in the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas' recent 2016 Workforce Assessment, a study of more than 517 marine industry businesses representing more than 1,300 retail locations across North America.

MRAA launched this survey in an effort to:

  • Identify workforce needs and challenges among marine dealers
  • Identify the positions within dealerships that are most in need for better skills and qualified job seekers
  • Analyze this crucial information to help the MRAA better serve dealers in their quest for greater success and growth for the marine industry.

This first-of-its-kind survey elicited much deeper understanding of the workforce crisis the marine industry is facing, supporting with data and facts the largely anecdotal evidence the industry has relied on to this point.
