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.”

utah employmentHow Do Utah Employment Numbers Affect the Staffing Industry?

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!”

My Favorite Staffing Experience

Making a Difference vs. Saving the World

I have been working in the staffing industry going on 13 years. It definitely wasn’t my dream or lifelong goal to work in the staffing industry. I had no intention in doing it as long as I have, but somewhere along the way I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s where I belong.

help others staffingThe staffing industry has so many ups and downs, sometimes you are busy and sometimes you are not. Sometimes you change someone’s life and sometimes you don’t and you walk away feeling totally defeated. I have definitely grown a ton in the last 13 years. I went from thinking I want to help everyone and make a difference but then came to the realization that I can only help the people that are willing to help themselves, the ones that want to change their lives and make it better. There are a ton of stories and experiences I remember. Some good and some not so good. But there has always been one story that made a huge impact and reminds me why I’m still here.

Once Upon a Time in Staffing…

About ten years ago there was a young kid that walked through the door of my previous employer. He was of smaller stature but acted like he was ten feet tall and very confident. I started his interview like I do all the others. Not too far into the interview that I found out he was in a halfway house. This was nothing new. We were known for being the staffing agency of second chances. Still, I had to wonder if this kid was serious about getting a job or if he was just there because he had to be.

Going through all the interview questions and getting to know him for that short time I realized what a great kid he was. He was very eager to work and to get out of the situation he was currently in. For the next week I kept him in mind for any jobs that came in that he qualified for. Needless to say he made an impression and I believed in him.

I finally found him a job, a very decent job for that matter, one that he could be proud of and with hard work and dedication could very well lead to growth in the company. He was so happy and grateful. After feeling accomplished in what I had done to help him, it faded away just like anything else. I had thought about him and how he was doing from time to time, but hadn’t heard from him for quite a while.

Time Passes

thank you cardThen one day I received a card at work specifically addressed to me. When I opened it, there was a big “Thank You” on the front of the card. I was very curious, so I opened it. Inside, in very tiny writing the entire card was filled up. It was from this employee, thanking me for what I had done for him. He wanted to let me know how big of an impact I had made on him, treating him like a person, and not judging him for the mistakes he had made. He told me that because I believed in him he was now out of the halfway house and had been hired on at the company I had sent him to.

It’s the Little Things

I learned so much that day. Knowing never to judge a book by its cover and also that I didn’t have to save the world, I just needed to make a difference. It was then that I knew I was here for a reason. Stories like this are why I am still in the staffing industry today.

The Utah Department of Work Force Services released the latest employment and unemployment numbers for the state. Check out the video below for a detailed update.

The state of Utah currently has a 3.8% unemployment rate which is well below the 4.8% national average.

We’re also starting to see wage growth in Utah as a result.

“For quite some time, we’ve seen very strong job growth and very low unemployment rate. Now what’s entered the stage is our strong wage growth,” says Carrie Mayne, Chief Economist at the Department of Workforce Services.

utah employmentHow Do The Utah Job Numbers Affect the Staffing Industry?

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.”
