Happy New Year from Tiger Labor & Staffing!
Although overall it still remains drastically more difficult to recruit than it was several years ago, small-business owners say it is getting easier to hire people and retain them, according to a survey of more than 650 entrepreneurs by the Wall Street Journal. Nearly 25% of respondents say it was easier to fill job openings in December than it was at the beginning of the year—an increase from 18% in November. Twenty percent said it was more difficult to fill open jobs, down from 25% in November. The shift is modest and comes as unfilled job openings continue to pressure many small companies. Of those surveyed, 56% said hiring challenges made it difficult to operate at full capacity. Eighty-four percent reported boosting wages in response to labor-market challenges, and more than two-thirds reported offering flexible hours and schedules.
