Struggling to find talent in today’s job market? Alaant’s, Miriam Dushane weighs the pros & cons to hiring a new graduate.
Just when they should be reaching the age when their experience helps them earn more money, many midcareer workers are hurt by age bias in the hiring process, according to a new survey of employers and workers around the world.
Every organization is trying to recruit and hire top professionals with first-rate skills, proven experience, and a passion for their work. The savviest companies look for one more attribute that can take an employee from great to outstanding: a strong fit with the corporate culture.
U.S. job openings jumped to a fresh record high in June and hiring also increased, an indication that the supply constraints that have held back the labor market remain elevated even as the pace of the economic recovery gathers momentum.
Q: If you’re offering a hybrid work environment, do you include it in your job postings?
Yes – 69% & No – 31%
Employees are seeking greater flexibility. Part of that is being able to work from home (completely to partial). Employers who have the ability to continue this hybrid environment could use this as an enticement when advertising to job seekers in our local market (and beyond). Whether you agree or not, this hybrid/remote opportunity is here to stay and compete with.
Some other pros/cons were put together by the Business Journal back in June. Check it out, here.
