GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) While unemployment is relatively low, there is a recruiting crisis right now in the West Michigan job market. That means there are new ways to approach finding the right employees for the right opportunities and retaining the employees you currently have.

Our expert at OnStaff USA says, for the first time in five years, there is a shift from employer to employees being in charge of what they want in an employer. Due to global economic growth, there is new competition for people. Human resource departments will need to focus on retention and engagement, as employees are steering more toward careers that are meaningful, rewarding, and enjoyable, instead of just for money and benefits.

The goal now for most companies will be to expand recruiting to a much higher level. Training is needed more than ever, and is more desired by prospective employers.

OnStaff says 2014 will be exciting in the recruiting world, but critical for companies because of the rapid pace that businesses are seeing success.
