Denae Paspuel, out of our Logan, Utah staffing office simply had this to say about the latest job report. Work is available. Are you?”

Logan Laws, the branch manager at our North Salt Lake office, added, “This is a market that is almost completely in favor of the employees and the lead economist echoes that when she said that now is the time to go for a higher paying job or that promotion you have been wanting. Demand for solid workers is through the roof and people are starting to pay towards their desperation.”

Utah Job Numbers | December 2016

The Latest Employment Numbers in Utah

Every month the Utah Department of Work Force Services releases current jobs and unemployment numbers for the state. Watch their most recent video below for a detailed update.

The state of Utah currently has a 3.1% unemployment rate which is well below the 4.6% national average.

We’ve also seen a 3.0% job growth rate last month compared to the 1.6% national growth rate.

“Yet again great news for our state,” says Carrie Mayne, Chief Economist at the Department of Workforce Services. “Unemployment is another number delivering great news. It tells us there’s roughly 46,000 individuals who are actively seeking work in our state.”

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. Retention of top talent and placing this talent continues to be a differentiator for YES”

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.”

Jarum Stone, the safety and operations manager at Your Employment Solutions had this to say about the latest job report.

My favorite quote from the clip is, ‘We [the Utah economy] are strong and steady.’

I would say that is also a reflection of how YES is doing. We have more jobs available than ever before in the history of YES! The increase of unemployment rate from 3.8 to 4.0 is a great sign for our economy. With more jobs there are plenty of opportunities for employees to be selective in terms of where they want to work. We know that when employees can be selective they are more likely to find a job they love rather than settle for the few options available.

It’s a great time to be in business in Utah!”

Cassandra Smith, one the great employment specialists at Your Employment Solutions had this to say about the latest job report:

“The unemployment rate popped up to 3.8% which means there are more people in Utah without employment. This means YES has a great opportunity to help people in Utah find a better paying job to meet there needs. Last year 44,000 new jobs were filled with quality candidates. YES, was a part of that growth potential. YES, has an opportunity to hit the job market and possibly place more candidates for the next year. We also need to look at quality candidate’s vs someone to show up to the job. A long term employee is where our focus should be. Helping our community expand and grow.”
