The employment market continues to show signs of increasing strength and improvement. While employers remain cautious with spending, companies are no longer merely trying to stay afloat in a struggling economic climate but are rather posing their business for near-term growth. They are beginning to put cash to work...cash that has been stowed away in defensive efforts to endure the recession. As the economy improves, companies are increasing investments in research and development and human capital, as well as aggressively pursuing both organic and inorganic growth opportunities.
However, not all is back to the free-spirited environment of the mid 2000's (and in fact, may never return to that level of care-free, proactive thinking). While hiring levels are increasing, the decision making process is frequently delayed. Companies remain cautious with the number of new hires and who they hire, resulting in numerous interview rounds and stringent qualification requirements. What does all this mean for job seekers? Hiring is looking up but hiring managers remain tentative in their decisions; and, competition remains strong...job seekers need to stay on top of their game in order to be the chosen candidate.
Creating and subsequently nurturing the connection between employer and employee represents an increasingly valuable step in the hiring process and has never been as rewarding as now. From 1969 to today, we continue to respect our candidates and embrace the value of building long-term business partnerships within all industries. We understand the need for using leading proprietary technology, with reliable and secure communications, as a vital component for bringing employers and employees together. While working with John Leonard, you immediately recognize our fundamental principle...Actions Speak Louder Than Words!TM
At John Leonard, we realize the importance of meeting and exceeding your expectations for exceptional staffing solutions. We remain proud of our ability to adapt in a way that benefits employers and employees alike and look forward to working with you to foster economic growth today and in the future.
