How Utah Employment Numbers Affect Staffing
Nicholas Riddle, an account manager in our Ogden, Utah staffing office had this to say about the latest job report:
“With unemployment low and job growth rising in key areas, it’s vital for us to take action in the staffing industry and get into the fields that are still growing with such a low unemployment rate. It also means that now more than ever, it is important that we be sure to find the right people for the right positions at the right time.”
Thanks for the input, Nicholas!
