Health and wealth benefits tips for job seekers

Podcast - August 2, 2018

Compensation & Benefits

Daniel Williams MBA, MSEM

The unemployment rate sits at 3.8%, the lowest in the U.S. since 1969, according to the Department of Labor. This historic low has placed job seekers squarely in the driver’s seat as employers are struggling to fill open positions.

In this podcast episode, human resources manager at MGMA, Jenny Morales, SHRM-SCP, GBA, explains how this dynamic is affecting the job market. “The good employees are already employed,” Morales says. “So, as employers are out there looking for candidates, they’re finding that employees are happy where they are because their current employers are offering great perks.”

How can employers gain favor? Morales says they have to look for differentiators when recruiting new talent and that has become more difficult because resumes aren’t coming in like they used to be. As an example, she says that a typical job posting a few years ago might have received as many as 200-300 applicants. That same job might receive around 25 applicants today. “Right away you screen out most the people for the job and you’re left with as few as possibly seven people to even consider and most of those aren’t qualified so companies are having to become more creative” to fill open positions.
