Seasonal hiring is kicking off. Major retailers like Michaels have announced they will hire as many as 15,000 seasonal workers this holiday season. Worker shortages, higher demands from candidates and a looming recession will further stress the talent market. So as much as we hate to be the bearers of bad news: Holiday hiring will be harder and more expensive for businesses. The competition for workers will be fierce. So if you’re planning on a hiring spree in Q4….start NOW.
If you would like to get a jump on your holiday hiring fill out the form at the bottom of this post and one of our expert recruiters will reach out to formulate a plan. We have successfully helped WNY companies navigate hiring booms for 20 years. You don’t have to just take our word for it. Hear what our clients have to say:
We have a very seasonal business that requires our organization to add employees at a rapid pace at times. These employees must meet specific guidelines and contain a unique skill set that will allow them to be successful in this position. Selective Staffing was far and away our #1 choice for providing us with candidates that meet this criteria.
While we did try a couple other staffing agencies, it was very clear that Selective Staffing provided both a higher quantity and, more importantly, a better quality of applicant. The applicants were well screened, had a solid understanding of the required functions, and also had a low turnover rate. The team there is very responsive and did a great job in accommodating my busy schedule when setting up interviews.
I would highly recommend Selective Staffing to any company in the Buffalo area that is looking to add on to their workforce. We will most certainly be using them again in the future and will make that decision with confidence.
