GovCon Expert Rich Wilkinson Talks 2022 Gauge Report Results; GovCon Challenges

2 mins read

Rich Wilkinson, senior director of industry marketing at Unanet, published his latest feature article as a key member of Executive Mosaic’s GovCon Expert program to highlight the results of the recently released 2022 GAUGE Report and other topics. 

More specifically, GovCon Expert Rich Wilkinson discussed that 68 percent, of the more than 1,100 executives who were surveyed in the government contracting (GovCon) community, are positively optimistic about their businesses despite some growing concerns in the sector regarding greater competition for government contracts and new talent recruitment challenges.

“The theme of the sixth annual GAUGE Report is ‘Reimagining how we work,’ and this year’s findings reveal several important ways in which government contracting firms are indeed reimagining their approaches to recruiting, retaining and managing people,”  GovCon Expert Rich Wilkinson explained. 

In addition, he also shared that close to 70 percent of respondents are employing a fully remote or hybrid work environment and viewing the changes in a positive light, but 49 percent of respondents also reported that recruiting and maintaining their workforce has worsened as a result of the pandemic.

“Each year since 2017, the GAUGE Report has provided government contracting firms with important benchmarks to measure themselves against their peers in five key areas,” Wilkinson continued. He also took a closer look into a few of our most compelling findings in the areas of government contract compliance, accounting, utilization, growth and efficiencies.
