The labor shortage is here, but it is not here to stay. The competition for talent is real, and your competitors are already trying to hire the best talent available. Here is what you need to know to win the competition for talent in the warehouse, transportation, and light industrial industry!
Pandemic Aid Shutoffs Leading to Competition for Talent
By September 6, 2021, states will have unemployment benefits go back to normal, leaving millions of Americans without a liveable source of income. This will force many people to go back to work. How are you going to stand out from your competitors? What type of employee benefits does your company offer to your employees? Some incentives you could consider offering to potential employees are child care, flexible work hours, and even sign on bonuses!
Ultimately, making any changes to your employee incentives is up to you, but it may be something you want to consider if you’re going to win the competition for talent. During the height of the pandemic, warehouse and supply chain teams reported feeling overworked and unsupported. Don’t let this happen to your employees, and be proactive about hiring talent to fill the gaps on your logistics team.
