Hiring Outlook for 2022
January 7th, 2022 Written by: Masterson Staffing Solutions
The last two years have brought upon unprecedented change. This year, many employers and businesses have adapted to the challenges of job burnout, remote working, and job retention in a market that has been defined by high employee turnover and labor shortages. Here are the predicted hiring trends for 2022.
Hiring May be Difficult in Some Industries
Labor shortages were the defining dilemma for many industries in 2021. Customer demands came back quicker than imagined, and employers faced challenges to get workers back into the labor force. There was also increased competition for hiring, which made retention difficult. 2021 may be a sign of what to expect for 2022.
Remote Work is Here to Stay
Before the pandemic, Working remotely was a luxury very few had. Now, companies across the nation are looking for talent in any state, as commuting to the office is not necessary. Many employers are allowing employees to work fully remote, as the demand is rising across industries that allow for it.
Why Employers Will Continue to Face Challenges in 2022
The lingering pandemic made the hiring process much more difficult this year, and unfortunately, that will continue into the coming year. As the customer demand rose quicker than expected, an imbalance of labor supply and demand made it difficult for companies to hire and retain employees. However, for professionals who are always looking for new opportunities, many businesses are offering competitive hiring benefits. While employers feel the brunt of the challenges brought about by a labor shortage, prospective employees can reap many benefits.
