Gaps in Staffing? You’re Not Alone.

Technology drives businesses. From retail and restaurants to manufacturing and IT, the demand for talent is on the rise. However, finding the right talent to suit your needs has never been harder. There are more jobs than people searching for jobs, something the American economy has never experienced before. The numbers don’t lie – there are 6.7 million job openings and only 6.4 million available workers to fill them, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

For years, employers have complained about a mismatch in skills or the inability to find workers with the proper training for their open positions. This trend has raised competition for experienced professionals leading employers to add other incentives to retain their employees and draw in new talent.

Not every business has the resources to find the perfect employee at an affordable cost. As demand for expert talent rises, staffing services providers, like Wicresoft, have become essential to building dream teams filled with subject matter experts. Hiring the wrong candidate not only affects profitability – it also impacts employee morale. Whether you need to fill a current vacancy or increase the staff to accommodate a new project, staffing companies prove to be an asset. A recent study showed 9% year-over-year growth in staffing across 137 of the world’s largest staffing companies.

The following industries saw significant staffing growth:

  • Legal
  • Marketing
  • Engineering/Design
  • Healthcare
  • I.T.
  • Administrative/Clerical
  • Finance/Accounting

Bridging the Gaps

Staffing decisions are never easy. The best staffing firms understand that matching skilled professionals with the right company is more than a resume. A candidate’s skills may be perfect for the role, but they can only be the right fit if they align with the company culture and be a productive part of the team. Staffing companies like Wicresoft have over 25 years of experience matching client needs and future requirements to ensure each candidate fits the long-term requirements to best help the team succeed.
