Companies Struggle to Fill Positions While Job Seekers Struggle to Find Employment

  • On November 10, 2021

Businesses around the United States are looking to fill positions available within their company, but struggle to find workers. Job seekers are also on the hunt for their ideal job, but are holding back because the opportunities present for them are not ideal. The current balance has resulted in no improvements for unemployment while companies voice their needs for employees as there is a worker shortage.

A survey determined the current market is experiencing a higher need for workers than ever in the past 15 years, while the United States has reported its highest hiring intentions since the 1960s. Companies reported stronger hiring needs for the end of this year when compared to the last three months of data in 2020.

Due to the labor shortage, businesses are beginning to prioritize retaining current employees and offering training programs. The training programs consist of skills needed to enhance their current abilities as well as new advancements within their position. Once their current teams are utilizing the program, businesses hope to attract and retain new talent with that piece of information. 

Businesses are also altering their benefits packages, offering flexibility in work schedules and increasing compensation when possible. Compensation packages are changing not only by increasing wages but offering sign-on bonuses and adjusting vacation packages. Of course, the incentive programs a business offers depend on the industry as well.

The Bureau of Labor and Statistics also indicated that job seekers are hesitant to job on any job offer, even though their need for employment is still high. Valuing a promoting work environment, good management team and more are just a few reasons why job seekers either left previous positions, or have not yet committed to an opportunity. Job seekers are also considering seasonal employment opportunities or contract jobs to understand the environment of the company and whether the position is a good fit, then hoping the temporary contract will turn into a full-time opportunity.
