Open Positions Galore
Thousand Oaks, CA, April 28, 2021 - Express Employment Professionals has received an onslaught of open positions for would be candidates. Now that businesses are back open, the demand for employees has grown exponentially. COVID-19 business restrictions have decreased over the past couple of months and with it, the increase of the ever-growing call for top talent.
Express Pros has also seen increased demand for Industrial jobs in various manufacturing sectors as well as office and professional positions. With so many jobs available, candidates have the chance to choose what they want most. However, due to many social economic factors it is no secret to employers that there are more jobs available than candidates. Increased unemployment incentives, child-care, pay rates and Covid-19 have limited the availability of candidates for the many open jobs.
Therefore, companies must be more creative in recruiting and hiring talent which can include revaluating pay scales, bonuses, as well as flexible schedules. Express Pros has adapted to the situation and is now offering a remote interview process to make onboarding more modern; and to accommodate candidates varied commitments and schedules. Express Pros also has the liability coverage to allow temporary employees to work remotely as business allows. Candidates can call one of the two Ventura County offices to schedule an interview over the phone and finish the application process online. However, if candidates do need to visit the office, employees adhere to strict COVID-19 precautions including the use of face masks over the nose and mouth, face shields, gloves, hand sanitizer, and practicing social distancing.
