RICHMOND, Va., June 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- With summer in full swing, businesses across the country are looking to staff up to support a predicted increase in consumer demand amid one of the most dynamic labor markets in recorded history. In an effort to set employers up for success this season, Snagajob, the country's largest platform for hourly work, has published its annual Summer Hiring Report. The report features fresh data and insights from surveys of thousands of hourly workers and employers as well as practical hiring advice for businesses staffing up for summer.
"Despite the fact that 80% of workers plan to look for a new job this year, companies across every industry are reporting they're struggling to find candidates," said Mathieu Stevenson, CEO of Snagajob. "One of the great revelations of the pandemic was just how fungible hourly workers' skill sets were. It's not that the hourly workers have left the workforce, t's that they are reshuffling: looking for more equitable work, greater flexibility and better opportunity for advancement."
