redShift Recruiting’s Ryan Thomas Was a Featured Panelist in Albany Business Review’s 2022 Recruitment and Retention Executive Forum
RedShift Recruiting is excited to announce that EVP of Business Development Ryan Thomas was a featured panelist in the Albany Business Review's 2022 Recruitment and Retention Executive Forum. The panelists discussed the challenges of the current job market, where significant labor shortages and the pandemic have drastically changed how people work and required companies to overhaul their recruitment strategies to attract talent. Many companies are experiencing significant difficulties in finding new staff as well as retaining current employees.
Ryan Thomas agreed that recruiting has become substantially more difficult for employers in the current market and noted the changing dynamics in the hiring process, such as the transition from in-person to remote interviews due to pandemic concerns. Labor shortages have also required companies to reexamine their salary structure to make sure they are still competitive in today’s market. Other challenges include a reduced local talent pool as more companies from New York City and California have been recruiting Albany talent for technology positions that offer high pay and the ability to work from home. Albany companies have had to adapt to a more competitive hiring market to be successful.
While these changes have brought new challenges to the hiring process, they have offered opportunities for recruiting agencies to connect with companies who have never used recruiters before. As more businesses are struggling to find employees, the demand for recruiting services is growing. Ryan Thomas has this advice to offer employers, “Be organized in the recruitment process because it’s going to make a huge first impression. Consider using tools such as predictive indexes that can help employers determine a candidate's suitability for their team. Recruit fast when you find a good candidate instead of asking for more choices. The act of looking at more resumes could take days, and by then the first candidate is gone in this market.”
