  • There are critical shortages of talent in every sector.
  • We have never seen it more difficult to find qualified candidates to move / relocate especially to more rural communities. 
  • Salaries are rising at a rate not seen in many years… clients that are sticking to old salary ranges are losing out on outstanding talent.
  • Clients with long hiring processes are losing out.
  • Candidates are curious to see opportunities but very discerning.
  • Candidates that are open to a job change have numerous options, companies are in competition for this talent.
  • Clients that have plans for advancing the knowledge and skill sets of their employees are fairing better than others.
