With 2024 just around the corner, it’s time for businesses to understand the latest staffing trends and anticipate changes that will impact their business strategies. KB Staffing is here to help with some expert insights especially relevant for Polk County. Here are the staffing trends to expect in 2024 (and beyond) for both job seekers and employers.
Staffing Trends to Expect in 2024
While the hybrid work model has been popular in recent years, it’s possible that we will soon see a decline in its popularity. With many employees now working remotely, some companies are considering returning to in-person work. You should be prepared to find candidates who are willing and able to work in the office, as well as those who are comfortable working remotely.
The gig economy, which includes freelance and contract work, is also becoming increasingly mainstream, with more workers seeking flexible, project-based jobs or temp work. It’s important to be aware of this trend and find ways to connect with talented gig workers who can meet your project-based needs.
Another important trend is the shift to a candidate-centric approach. This means recruiters need to focus on building relationships with potential candidates and ensuring they have a positive experience throughout the recruitment process.
While trust and loyalty are coming to the forefront of recruitment, so, too, is a shift in hiring responsibilities. By letting KB Staffing help with your company’s hiring and other personnel needs, you can save time and focus on what really matters — your business and customers.
To that point, recruiting in 2024 will require a greater focus on diversity and inclusion, with companies actively seeking out candidates from underrepresented groups and implementing policies to promote equity in the workplace.
