3 Hiring Best Practices Regardless of Unemployment Levels
Unemployment levels fluctuate, sometimes subtly and other times abruptly. Although unemployment rates were declining as recently as the beginning of 2020, they spiked in a massive way early in the COVID-19 pandemic.   Thankfully, unemployment has started to decrease once again over the past few months. In other encouraging news, 57% of businesses expect hiring to return to pre-pandemic levels by the beginning of 2021. However, companies that scaled back on candidate sourcing and hiring this year may have stilted their business continuity and momentum.   If your company recently put the brakes on sourcing candidates, it’s time to revive your sourcing practices. Try these candidate recruitment strategies to avoid reacting impulsively to the effects of low high unemployment or low unemployment.   1. When unemployment rises, continue building relationships.   Why should waiting to source potential applicants during uncertain times interrupt healthy hiring practices?...

How to Ask a Friend for a Job Referral
You've probably heard that one of the best ways to find a job is through a referral from a friend or a contact in your professional network. That's because job candidates who are referred by someone the employer knows and trusts are more likely to be hired than a total stranger.   Another advantage of working your contacts for job leads is early access to openings that haven't even been advertised yet. You'll start by checking the jobs page on your friend's employer's website, but even if there's nothing there, it's worth asking.   However, there are some "don'ts" to keep in mind when asking for that referral, so that you don't damage the relationship between you and your friend.   Don't be entitled. Remember, no one *owes* you a referral, so when you ask, keep the pressure off. Wrong: "I see there is xxx job opening at your company, can you refer me?" Right: "Would you feel comfortable telling your hiring manager about me?"   Don't call out of the blue. It's...

3 Ways Technology Can Contribute to Higher Retention
What makes employees feel like they never want to leave a job? There are plenty of factors at play (hint: pay isn’t a huge motivator), not the least of which is the importance of the employee experience. Workers will seek greener pastures if their perception of working with a corporation sours — or if their first interactions with a business reveal that its culture doesn’t align with their own. Most employees are relatively patient when it comes to employers bringing in different leadership or adopting new operational styles. But that tolerance has its limits, which means leaders need to focus on how to maintain employee retention by serving up a fantastic experience. Thankfully, technology can help deliver that experience. Want to know how to improve the employee experience with the use of technology? Here are three approaches to consider adopting: 1. Practice unapologetic flexibility. More than ever before, workers demand adaptability from their employers. The ongoing COVID-...

Why Employee Benefits Are (Almost) as Important as Pay
Did you know that benefits can add as much as 30% to the value of your earnings? If you have ever, for example, tried to get individual health insurance, you know the rates are double, triple or even more times what you pay in an employee group plan.   Here are some of the most popular benefits Integrity Staffing offers to its associates. Not all of them impact your finances right now, but they can help you position yourself to make more money in the future.   #1 Pay Frequency / Convenience   This one got first place because associates love getting paid every week, instead of once every two weeks as many employers do. Plus, it is deposited directly into the associate's bank account or Wisely card, hassle-free.   Our PayActiv progam is also getting rave reviews. This program gives on-demand access to earnings, instead of waiting until payday. It's a lifesaver (or at least, late fees saver) when a bill must be settled immediately — especially since it can be paid...

4 Ways a Staffing Agency Can Boost Your Candidate Sourcing
Putting the right employees in the right roles is integral to any company’s long-term success. Unfortunately, many companies are too distracted and unable to devote adequate time and energy to sourcing candidates, sifting through résumés, and screening applicants via tests. With their attention diverted, these businesses lose the opportunity to snag talented applicants before their competition hires them.   Does this mean that organizations need to designate the entire recruitment process to one employee? That’s a possible solution, but it can eat up that person’s bandwidth in unwelcome ways. Instead, why not partner with a staffing agency? A third-party partner like Integrity Staffing Solutions leverages its expertise to connect companies with ideal candidates to fill out their open positions.   The benefits of working with a staffing agency are plentiful. They include:   1. Agencies specialize in this area.   Recruiting and retaining top talent is a primary focus...
