Home' InDaily : October 16th 2009 Contents In Australia s current economic times, the
recruitment of permanent employees has
been tight with many ups and downs creating
a lot of uncertainty within the marketplace.
This has led employers to spasmodically
hiring casual employees on a needs basis
to appease immediate labor requirements
rather than keep their long term staffing
levels in mind.
While the upside of this has helped the
employer to meet its staffing levels for the
immediate future, for employees wanting to
find and commit to long term jobs, this has
been an incredibly frustrating time. Therefore
on the downside for employers, some
organisations have found they ve missed
out on the perfect candidates because
they haven t been able to offer long term
opportunities to candidates.
The job market is looking to stabilize in the
next 6-12 months, bringing the dilemmas
back to employers as positions will become
available but the availability of skilled
workforce will diminish with increased
demand for workers.
Larger industries will require skilled technical
employees and may also attract those
people to remote locations in South Australia
and the more densely populated areas of
the state will again result in severe skill
shortages. At Qest Human Resources we
are strongly encouraging our clients to look
into their crystal ball now and strategically
plan to forecast their potential staffing
requirements for the next 6-12 months and
commence recruiting now.
Employers should also be looking at
implementing staff retention practices to
avoid any disappointment in the future and
losing their skilled, reliable and available
employees to competitors. It is essential
that employers move forward now by being
proactive with highlighting their future
recruitment needs, identifying the skills
needed to perform job roles, increasing
performance and retaining productive
Recent decreases in South Australia s
unemployment figures indicate that the
skilled employment market may well
decrease sooner rather than later. Therefore
by forecasting now on labour requirements,
implementing strategies to improve
performance and retain existing employees,
employers will limit the possibility of being
caught in the candidate short market that
we ll inevitably find ourselves in once our
economic situation improves.
