Have you noticed the ever growing demand in skilled labor? Are you a small to mid-size construction company struggling to keep good help? Have you noticed job recruiting sites tend to charge you an astronomical amount with very little results? Well if you said yes to any of these, trust me, you're not alone.
The demand for highly skilled labor seems to be at an all time high. Often times employers are having to "steal" talent from their competitors due to the shortage of skilled labor.
It also seems that skilled labor isn't cheap labor these days. The job market as a whole has changed to meet these demands, and many business owners are struggling just to keep the doors open. Are millenials to blame? Or is it the outdated marketplace struggling to keep up with the higher demands of workers in general? Inflation is a direct result of these demands. Obamacare rates sky-rocketing to give a universal health care that seems nothing more than flawed since the beginning.
But, what are thriving companies doing differently to keep these top candidates working for them? It is simple, changing the workplace atmosphere to meet the demands of these new workers. We can try to resist the change, or we can adapt to the change. It is a choice that many business owners are going to struggle with, especially if they have been in business for 30 years or more. Technology is changing the way the market interacts with it's employees.
Using social media platforms is the new trend for business owners. Knowing how to properly advertise on these platforms is more important than ever. What attracts your ideal candidate? What hobbies are they interested in? What timeline are you looking at for a new-hire? Do you have a 3-6 month goal? How is your on-boarding process?
These are questions you really need to consider, and have confidence in knowing that you know these answers with 100% confidence. If you are not confident with any of these you can contact me and we can figure out the best game plan fit for your business.
