In the past six weeks, recruiting in the staffing industry has gone from tough to nearly impossible.
Consider these statistics:
- Manufacturing and production job ads on Indeed have increased 52.7% year over year.
- Application conversion rates have declined 18.8% since March 11.
- The cost per application has increased 36% in the past month.
The staffing industry is facing a recruiting perfect storm of increased labor demand, reduced supply, and thanks to the Stimulus Package, a strong incentive for people to remain on unemployment.
Unfortunately, there are no silver bullets to overcome these challenges. However, there are a lot of things you can do to improve your fill rates. In this special edition of Lunch with Haley, our Co-CEO, David Searns, and Director of Recruitment Marketing, Matt Lozar, will review the issues and strategies for attracting talent, reducing ghosting, and getting more of your job orders filled.
