Weekly Update From Emily

The hot topic of the week : 5.1% June unemployment rate is improvement in Kalamazoo-Portage…….most economist state that those numbers indicate FULL EMPLOYMENT! Are you finding it hard to recruit people…..this is why! Be sure you are working with your OnStaff USA recruiter for all of your hiring needs.

We are excited to announce the return of a past recruiter, Kristina Davis. She recently moved back to the Kalamazoo area and will re-join our team on Monday 8/3/15. Welcome back Kristina!

Kalamazoo Growlers and Battle Creek Bombers season is coming to an end. We had a great time this year as their Founding Partner. Not only did we get in Food and Baseball with our Friends and Clients but we also did a bunch of recruiting fairs at the ball field and came up with lots of great candidates. Can’t wait until next year!

Back to school is right around the corner – that means several things – College students will be returning to school (please work with your recruiter on transitions and replacements). Another great thing it means is a new pool of candidates – stay at home moms and dads that now have all their kiddos in school and want to work! This is an exciting time for all of us – be prepared for your recruiters to be working with you on this new set of candidates.

Have a great week!
