As reported on July 7, 2020, the latest statistics of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show the largest monthly increase of hires since the beginning of the series. The latest numbers for May indicate the number of hires increased by 2.4 million.
Recent news feeds point to a nationwide decrease of young people entering skilled trades. With new hires on the rise, combined with the nationwide shortage of laborers, companies are faced with mounting challenges when it comes to employee recruitment.
INVESTING IN EMPLOYEE RECRUITMENT
To meet the ever-increasing hiring challenges, companies are finding it necessary to invest in a variety of recruitment programs. From hosting community job fairs to stepping up recruitment advertising, employers are placing additional emphasis on hiring practices to fill the demand for new hires. Of course, the addition of new recruitment protocols often results in higher out-of-pocket expenses, an increased level of internal resources, extended project deadlines and other typical hiring stalls such as worker training and skills assessments.
