Professionally Speaking

There is a great transformation coming to the American workforce. What will it mean for you? In the brave new world of work the future looks magnificent for highly qualified candidates. Not so magnificent for clients looking for highly qualified employees.

According to the McKinsey Global Institute by 2020 there will be between 38 and 40 million too few college and university graduates worldwide. The trend is heading in the same direction in the US—fewer college graduates chasing more open positions. And age and retirement will mean fewer experienced workers as well. That means increased competition and a rapidly escalating compensation package for quality workers at all levels. In future blogs we will be discussing this trend in greater detail.

Right now we want all our clients to know that we are working harder than ever to make sure that the candidates we provide are of the highest quality and the best match for your company culture. That’s why we go to great lengths to be sure we understand the business climate our clients face and the company culture of each and every firm we serve. Increased competition will only make that kind of insight more valuable to our clients. We are nimble and flexible and always looking ahead to anticipate employment trends and not just react to them. To help you keep abreast of the changes ahead we are constantly on the lookout for information from all relevant sources. Including you.

We want to start a conversation with you, to help us understand the challenges you face when you look for suitable candidates. We want our website to be a clearinghouse for best practices and good ideas. We want to be your partner and help you build a competent, professional, committed workforce. We welcome your feedback. We look forward to sharing insights and knowledge. Together we can navigate the great transition—and even benefit from the increased competition. We have much more to share with you and we will be doing just that over the coming months.

When a new blog appears we will alert you by email or text message (whichever you prefer). Our feedback section is always open to your knowledge and experience. Have you seen increased competition for appropriate candidates? Are you seeing a rise in compensation packages? Are we doing a good job in helping you meet your needs? Your feedback is important to us because it lets us know when we’re doing a good job and how we can improve in the future. Please let us know what you think.

Want to know more about the future? Call, email, text or comment. You won’t regret it.
