Semper Workforce Solutions Reveals Results of Q3 2022 Survey

Press release from the issuing company

Semper Workforce Solutions has released the results of the 2022 third quarter survey of the printing and packaging industries. The report’s headline, Economic Shifts Impact Confidence Going into Q4, hints at how interesting the next few months will be.

Dave Regan, Semper International Co-Founder and CEO, summarized the survey results, “The economy is changing and fast, as each .75 interest rate increase happened, many felt a shudder through the economy. The first was a week slowdown, the second two weeks plus of a slowdown, the next longer and the last less so but because it is busy season and we had election printing.” Regan suggested, “Let’s wait the 9 plus months to see the what the impact of the work these rate increases will do on inflation.”

The data collected for each survey represents several industry categories: commercial printing, packaging, display and large format graphics, apparel and decorating, and others. Critical to this report is a commitment from contributors to provide steady consistent quarterly data. Semper’s objective is to provide data that is a balanced mix of geography, revenue, and company types.

Survey Participation Is Encouraged. Semper will make a $5.00 contribution
for each valid survey to the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF).

PGSF is a not-for-profit, private industry-directed organization that offers technical school, undergraduate, and graduate fellowship assistance to men and women interested in a career in the graphic communications field. As you will see in survey question #6, there is a demand for “quality skilled professionals as retirements continue to take a BITE out of the labor force.”
