A Booming Economy, the Downside


A Booming Economy, the Downside

The economy is booming, companies are growing, unemployment is at historic lows. What could be the downside?

Simple. There are tens of thousands of good paying jobs that are not being filled. That means that potential employees are in the driver’s seat. If you are in an industry that traditionally has an employee base that has mediocre salaries and benefits, whose working conditions are less that stellar, and that has a relatively untrained management cadre, then you can expect to have employees not only difficult to find, but also difficult to keep.

Two friends of mine, Sherry Evens of Evens Time and Vicki Pero of the Marlyn Group are hosting a webinar on November First dealing with this very issue. Their promo states:

Competition for talent has dramatically increased due to shrinking unemployment rates. This makes you incredibly susceptible to making the wrong hire, a villain who can wreak havoc on your parking operations… and only YOU have the power to stop it!Join forces with two of the foremost HR leaders in the parking industry on Thursday, November 1st at 2:30PM ET and get the near super-human actionable insights you need to:

  • Increase your company’s flow of qualified candidates.

  • Decrease “time to fill” ratios for open positions

  • Reduce direct and indirect hiring costs

  • Compete for talent more effectively

  • And make the RIGHT hire!

You can sign up here.

The numbers don’t lie. One bad hire can cost your company as much as $17,000. Can you afford to take the risk?

Join Sherry and Vicki on November 1. I’m going to.
