  • 1.  Navigating Talent Shortage as a result of Stimulus/Unemployment Benefits

    Posted 01-18-2021 08:45
    Good Morning - We'll be presenting at a Client's HR Summitt later this month and they've made a specific request.  They experienced a significant contingent workforce talent shortage in their manufacturing facilities as a result of the increase in Unemployment pay (Cares Act) in 2020. 

    We do not specialize in Light Industrial Staffing so I could use some help here from Recruiters who experienced these same challenges in 2020. 

    Do you anticipate this challenge to extend into 2021?  And, what are some potential workarounds to help our clients prepare for a better 2021? 

    All responses are appreciate!

    Hi Andres –

     

    Yes, for sure it will extend well into 2021.  And you just need to go old school... call, call, call... Get out on the street – talk to people, put up flyers, ask for referrals. 

     

    There is no magic wand... just have to be persistent and creative & friendly!!

     

    Have a good one!

    Thanks for the reply, Carl.  Agreed that it won't get easier any time soon.

    Hi Andres,
    As Carl said, yes there will still be challenges in the LI recruiting arena at least until the end of March. With the additional $300 in the UI checks, the average hourly 'wage' to stay home is over $16.00.  So, you do have to get creative and determine what resonates with the light industrial worker. Employbridge does a great survey each year to understand the voice of the blue collar worker. This report will help your clients understand what is important to the worker and how they might be able to offer something other than just 'more money'.   You can search voice of the blue collar worker and find all the information.
    Also, our staffing clients have found there is so much to why a worker will not accept an assignment right now and it is important to ask why they refuse an assignment and track trends to help you overcome the local market issues.

    Hi Amy - This is great insight, I will definitely track down the Employbridge survey. Very helpful nuggets to discuss with my client and help them understand how they can improve in 2021.
