The employment landscape has changed significantly over the past few years. Gone are the days of employers having hundreds of candidates to choose from with employees scrambling to land any job they could get. Today, the employees have the upper hand. This shift took place the moment that job openings surpassed hires. That trend continues to rise so it appears that it will continue to be an employee’s market for the foreseeable future.
For an organization to grow in this environment, it will take a more concerted effort of attracting and retaining great employees. Companies will need to take a much more proactive approach in seeking out great talent. In a sense, it’s a role reversal with the company now needing to sell itself to the candidate.
