It’s hard to imagine that 2020 is officially halfway over. Compared to last year’s summer check-in, the economy couldn’t be more different today. In the midst of COVID-19 still consuming most of the health and economic narratives, the jobs market has been incredibly disrupted. In this Hireology State of Hiring, we take a look at the trends seen in the first half of the year, and how they will influence plans leading into 2021.
While we’ve kept a close eye on the monthly jobs numbers, the recent downtick in unemployment is still substantially far away from leaving small and medium businesses feeling recovered. Like many of you out there, we’ve had to substantially alter our plans for the year, and are following CDC guidelines and our local updates on when it may be safe to begin reopening.
In any case, the Hireology State of Hiring today is a world away from where we were in January 2020. But even though there’s uncertainty in the market, you can be taking steps today to make sure you’re prepared to overcome the staffing challenges we may see for the last half of the year.
