A recent report from Bloomberg states that the Great Resignation has continued well into 2022, despite speculation that a recession is coming. As Human Resources departments across the United States scramble to recruit and hire new workers to fill crucial vacancies, it’s clear that “business as usual” has flown out the window.
In this issue of HR Insights, Mackenzie Froese discusses three key factors for handling the current job market: best hiring practices, employee retention programs, and boosting your workplace culture. Her insights into ways that HR professionals can improve in these areas are sure to be helpful to many.
One of Froese’s key points stands out to me: more and more HR departments are partnering with staffing agencies. These relationships bring valuable solutions to overworked professionals who need outside eyes on the challenges. And why shouldn’t they turn to the companies who are experts in all things human resources?
