Aerotek® Inc., a leading provider of recruiting and staffing services, today released a new report, 2019 Staffing Imperatives: What it Takes to Win in Today’s Unique Labor Market. The resource explores today’s job market by the numbers, digs deeper into how to engage job seekers, offers strategies for recruiting and retaining top talent, and examines how technology is impacting the recruitment process.
Employers face significant, but not insurmountable, challenges in today’s hiring market. The 2019 Staffing Imperatives outlines three critical pillars for organizations looking to navigate the evolving employment landscape:
- Recruitment: Prioritize the candidate experience to attract top talent
Pay attractive and competitive wages. In addition, think about the future potential of an employee, not just years of experience, and be prepared to act in real time or risk losing a potential candidate.
- Retention: Retain employees with opportunity, respect
Be flexible when possible — workers are increasingly interested in remote work, flexible scheduling and exercising their own creativity.
- Technology: Use technology to support talent acquisition and management
Text, email and phone conversations all have a specific place in your hiring strategy.
“With record-low unemployment and increasing wage rates, the current labor market can present a real challenge to growing companies,” notes Aerotek Executive Director of Marketing and Technology Blair Kennard. “This report can help them develop and execute scalable, flexible staffing solutions that adapt to evolving economic conditions.”
