The Mad Scramble for Holiday Workers
According to an article by Roy Maurer on SHRM.org, “Employers planning to hire hundreds of thousands of holiday-season workers this year are expanding their talent aquisition channels and raising wages to fill jobs from a shrinking talent pool.”
Snagajob recently conducted a survey of 1,000 employers in the hospitality, retail, and restaurant industries. Ninety percent of those surveyed plan to hire seasonal workers. Those retailers that plan to hire the most seasonal workers probably won’t come to you by any sort of surprise; with the likes of Amazon, Walmart, and Target among those at the top of the list.
With the number of holiday-season workers expected to be between 640,000 and 690,000 for retailers only, HR departments, talent acquisition professionals, and background screening companies such as VICTIG will definitely have their work cut out for them over the next couple of months.
Have a fabulous November!
