Haylee Sorenson, an account manager at our Ogden, Utah staffing office had this to say about the latest job report:

“The current unemployment rate has it’s positives and negatives. The positive is that there are plenty of jobs available to current job seekers. The negative is that there’s not enough people to effectively fill these open job positions. I think that is where it affects the staffing work that we do.

We here at YES always want to deliver the right people, on time, the first time. It is taking a little longer to accomplish that goal of ours. We are still seeing people come through our door everyday but they may not be qualified for positions we have or simply may not be interested. We are having to get a little more creative with our outreach and we have to act fast when we find the right person for the job. We don’t want to just send a warm body, we want to send the right one.”

Thanks for the input Haylee!

Utah Job Numbers | April 2017

Most Recent Employment Numbers in Utah

The Utah Department of Work Force Services regularly releases current jobs and unemployment numbers for the state. Watch their most recent video below for a detailed update (released in March) of February’s employment data.

The state of Utah currently has a 3.1% unemployment rate ranking below the 4.7% national average.

We’ve also seen a 3.3% job growth rate last month compared to the 1.7% national growth rate.

“Our extremely low unemployment rate shows that we are getting people into jobs and creating a lot of opportunities for jobseekers,” says Carrie Mayne, Chief Economist at the Department of Workforce Services.

Seth Hopkin, an HR manager who works out of one of our Ogden, Utah staffing offices had this to say about the latest job report.

“When unemployment numbers are so low and so many companies are looking for qualified applicants, job hopping in positions that require technical training, secondary education, or extensive experience is more common.

For YES the low unemployment rate, even though statistics indicate we are in the ‘fastest growing’ segment of the economy, may be because it is harder to find the right fit for the positions that are available. I don’t know how much of the population is considered unemployable, or how to even define that term, but there are certainly fewer candidates to consider for each open position.

With that said, if it is difficult for YES to find employees, the service we provide becomes for more valuable for the companies we partner with because it is that much more time they don’t need to spend looking for the right candidate in a difficult hiring environment.”

Thanks for the input Seth.

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”
