The U.S. Is Recovering From The Pandemic Unemployment Boom
The past few years have sent the American workforce into complete chaos, but as the U.S. recovers from the pandemic unemployment boom, Essential Pros has stepped up to help fight unemployment and get America’s economy rolling.
During the pandemic, the national unemployment rate jumped to a staggering 14.7% in April 2020, as a result of stay-at-home orders and restrictions on businesses that affected America’s ability to work. Add on the fact that the pandemic caused what’s now known as The Great Resignation, in which people left their places of employment in droves for better work, and it’s an understatement to say the U.S. economy has been through a whirlwind recently.
But good news is on the horizon, as people get back to work and unemployment falls. As of June 2022, the U.S. unemployment rate has fallen to 3.6%, near record lows. And that’s thanks in no small part to staffing agencies such as Essential Pros, which has both found reliable, qualified candidates for employers looking for workers, as well as assisted job seekers searching for the next step in their careers.
Essentials Pros Franchises are Curbing Unemployment
Like never before, staffing agencies became a critical and essential function to the U.S. economy amid unprecedented job loss and unemployment. Over the past two years, Essential Pros proved its mettle, connecting job seekers with prospective work opportunities, and helping businesses save time and money to find the right candidate.
“As per studies, the staffing and recruiting agencies contribute to the U.S. economy by providing career opportunities to over 16 million people every year,” according to a report in FileUnemployment. “Additionally, six in ten staffing agencies work full time to fill in the gap of unemployment and help people find a job.”
Essential Pros has risen to the top of the staffing agency industry as one of the most trusted brands for a number of reasons. For one, Essential Pros conducts an extensive screening process of candidates, checking their work history and taking the time to get to know candidates and their goals. This way, employers can be assured their hires are qualified and intend to stay for the long term. On the other side, job seekers, too, can be confident they know exactly what their new career entails. One important component of how we accomplish our goal as one of the most trusted staffing agencies is focusing on smaller to mid-size markets, with populations as low as 25,000 people, allowing our franchise owners to become contributing community members.
