About Your Employment Solutions

Founded in Utah during 1995, Your Employment Solutions (YES) had a vision to re-create the traditional Utah staffing and employment methods. The owners, Reed Laws and Kerry Westenskow, quickly realized that CUSTOMIZED staffing was nowhere to be found. In order to customize meant every fiber of the company’s existence had to have the ability to adapt and react to each and every client.

In addition to customizing, YES has taken this vision one step further by being the first of its kind to certify its staffing process, build its own Utah recruiting job board, and own its criminal background company.

Utilizing these tools allows YES to staff qualified workers for companies in need of 1 employee – or – 3 bazillion employees. Combining these efforts along with exceptional customer service has helped shape the company’s vision of being, “Unquestioned leaders in customized staffing.”

Andrea Posell, our Ogden Utah branch manager at Your Employment Solutions had this to say about the latest job report.

“Our economy is doing great, which means there are only 46,000 people out of work in the state of Utah. While this is good for our state (being 3rd in the nation) it doesn’t help us out, because we have a ton of jobs to fill but not enough people to fill them. It also means people can be picky and go with the highest paying jobs. So we also need help from the employers to make the pay more competitive to get these jobs filled.”

Brigham Yates, YES’ Director of Client Relations, says, “Job growth is real and in the month of November Utah added 42,000 more jobs than in 2015. With unemployment so low and the growth going in a upward tread of 3% means the workforce market is much lower and companies can be more competitive. Employee can pick and choose which means companies cultures and wages need to change to be more competitive.

Chris Walker, on of our Ogden, Utah area managers at Your Employment Solutions had this to say about the latest job report.

The fact that our unemployment rate is decreasing, while our job force is still increasing goes to show that the right people are finding the right jobs and those people are dedicating themselves to the work they are doing. Which, in turn, is creating more opportunities for companies to grow and create more job openings to continue that growth.”

JEff Arnold, YES’ VP of Business Development, added, “Strong growth number in jobs created showcases the Utah economy. Continued opportunities for the work force and for employees to find excellent job opportunities at the moment. This strong economy creates dynamic possibilities for YES as we continue to be creative in our recruiting efforts.

Attracting Great Millennial Talent to Your Company

attracting millennial talent Millennials are going to drive the future of business. The millennial workforce of 53.5 million has surpassed Generation X and now represents the largest share of the American workforce. This group is highly educated, adaptable, tech-savvy and quick learning. Millennials’ skills are essential for businesses that want to innovate and stay relevant in the ever-changing business world. However, managers have learned that it is difficult to find and retain millennial talent.

Here are some ways you can attract (and keep) excellent millennial talent:

Create a dynamic culture

Your company needs to be an industry leader that understands millennial wants, needs and behavioral patterns. The modern workplace is constantly changing, due to new technologies, globalization, automation and a fluctuating economy. A modern company needs to create culture that works with the progressive, millennial mindset. With the right culture, you won’t have to force anyone to do anything.

Encourage innovation

Millennials strive to develop, create, contribute and innovate. Unlike any other generation, it is their goal to make an impact on the world. These millennial qualities will not only fuel your growth and influence, but encouraging innovation contributes to overall happiness. If you want to attract and retain millennial employees, your business should be unique and nurture creativity.

Flexibility

The millennial workforce changes and creates industries. These individuals have the flexible skill sets required to be successful in a technology-driven world full of change, instant responses and infinite workdays. Millennials crave experiences and opportunities above all else. You need to create an environment that allows people to work remotely and even travel. Providing the opportunity to have unique experiences will keep millennial employees engaged. Maximize the talents, creativity and independence of your employees by giving them freedom and flexibility.

Make Your Business Meaningful

Millennials are driven by purpose. They want to be impactful and need more than a large salary to motivate their work. Find a charity or cause that is important to and congruent with your company’s mission. If you can sell products or services and make a difference, everyone will win. Employees will find fulfillment when they’re part of something bigger.

Cheers to Great Business!

Reed Laws, president of Your Employment Solutions had this to say about the latest job report.

September’s job growth data doesn’t surprise me as we continue the uphill battle of screening, hiring, and on-boarding solid, reliable candidates.  Due to this increased growth we have also seen wage increases over the last few years as companies fight for the best talent.

Fortunately, YES has created internal measurements and processes to keep up with most of our clients demands.”

Kenneth Vanderburg, manager of our West Valley City staffing office added, “Our job market continues to grow. This makes employment a very competitive industry which in turn makes keeping employees happy longer, even more difficult.

Luckily we have great clients who have also seen how tough it is to work with such a small employee pool, that they have raised their wages and have made adjustments internally to make their workplace more inviting and appealing for others to stay longer.”
