December is here and we are approaching the end of 2021. At year end, employees start looking for raises or begin thinking about a new job for next year. With the ongoing pandemic and growing inflation news, employers must do their research to stay competitive. According to the Harvard Business Review, employees between 30 and 45 have had the greatest increase in resignations during the “Great Resignation”. Job advertisement with uncompetitive wage rates have low response rates, and if you are lucky to schedule an interview, you may get ghosted by the applicant. Quality applicants are looking for competitive wages and benefits. Because recruiting and retaining employees remains extremely tough today, staying up to date with local pay rates is critical. HR can help you stay competitive.
