Reno, Nevada 4/28/16—Express Employment Professionals released today new survey results revealing the increasing difficulty that employers face when trying to recruit and fill jobs.
The findings come from a survey of 340 businesses. Respondents were asked, “Currently, how easy is it for you to recruit and fill positions?”
Only three percent said “very easy,” while 29 percent said “somewhat easy.” Almost half, 49 percent, said “somewhat difficult,” 16 percent said “very difficult,” and another three percent said, “I don’t know.”
More respondents said “very difficult” or “somewhat difficult” (65 percent) in this survey than in any of the four hiring trends surveys conducted by Express in 2015. The increase in reported difficulty corresponds with the decrease in the unemployment rate.
“Employee turnover can be expensive. Time spent recruiting, interviewing and training a new hire adds up and can cost a Reno Employer as much as 150% of the employee's annual salary,” said Michele Davies, franchise owner of the staffing agency’s Reno office.
The survey of 340 businesses, which are current and former clients of Express Employment Professionals, covers hiring trends for the first quarter of 2016.
People interested in more and would like to arrange for an interview with Michele Davies, call (775) 562-0556.
