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.

utah employmentHow Utah Employment Numbers Affect Staffing

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.

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.”

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.”

utah employmentHow Do Utah Employment Numbers Affect the Staffing Industry?

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.

utah employmentHow Do Utah Employment Numbers Affect the Staffing Industry?

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”

utah employmentHow Do Utah Employment Numbers Affect the Staffing Industry?

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.”
