Imagine being on the front lines of a historically challenging hiring market.

That’s what the honorees in our Staffing Agencies Power List are staring down in 2023.

You can read the full profiles here.

“The struggle to find and retain talent is real,” says honoree Betsy Anthony, chief operating officer of Find Great People.

Now imagine that challenge being exacerbated by a global pandemic that reshaped the workforce landscape as we once knew it. The Great Resignation, which saw 48 million workers quit their jobs in search of better work, is still creating waves in the labor market.

How do employers find the right fit in a world of remote and hybrid trends?

Good question.

What’s the main reason people aren’t working in South Carolina, even if they’re able to do so?

“The top answer — perhaps surprisingly, given how strong the labor market has been in the past 18 months — was low pay with 23% of respondents indicating this was a barrier,” wrote the SC Department of Employment and Workforce Labor Market Information Division, in its most recent South Carolina Data Trends survey.

I’m confident our Power List honorees are working on solutions.

Got an idea for a Power List honoree? Let me know. Contact info is below.

As always, thanks for reading.
