Competition for employees can make it tough for businesses to find workers to fill vacancies. In today’s tight labor market, many more companies are open to hiring individuals with a criminal record. There may be some benefits to this decision too.
According to the 300-plus business owners who responded to our recent survey on the workforce challenges affecting their business, it appears that employee engagement is not a problem for most. Some 87% of respondents said they ‘strongly agree’ or ‘somewhat agree’ with the statement “the staff in my business are committed and engaged.” A further 87% of respondents believe that “employees in my business have opportunities to learn and grow.”
Many companies have given employees the opportunity to work remotely as an effective tool for attracting and retaining top talent. Workers are able to gain flexibility and employers also get the benefit of choosing the best person for the job, no matter where they’re located. Technology today also offers more opportunities for employees to work outside of the traditional office.
