Competitive Pay Rates

With the economy shifting back to an Employee’s Market and minimum wage rising, pay rates are expected to increase by approximately 3.0% from 2014 to 2015.  As the available good labor pool is shrinking and more skilled candidates are finding jobs, employers looking to fill positions must offer more competitive pay rates and benefits when hiring. 

CEOs are also facing the growing concern of how to retain their valuable staff members through the upcoming year.  In order to remain competitive, companies will have to focus their attention on both current and prospective employee salaries.

Shifting to an Employee's Job Market

The days of finding a large pool of qualified candidates seeking employment are quickly fading away. For the past 4 years it has been an employer’s job market where you had your pick of many top candidates to choose from but that is rapidly changing as the economy continues to improve.

staffing industry trends

We are seeing a strong increase in hiring now in all industries and there are a lot fewer people looking for work because many of them are now reemployed. Those who are seeking employment are getting offers quickly so it is becoming more difficult now to find the right person to hire and you must act quickly to make an offer of employment or you risk losing that candidate to another company.

Having a great staffing partner to assist you with the hiring process can be invaluable by saving you time as well as the costs associated with recruiting, screening and skill evaluation. Such a partnership accelerates the process of getting qualified candidates in front of you quickly and gives you the competitive edge in acquiring the top talent that is available.
