With American unemployment rates dropping, job seekers have their choice of positions and opportunities.
Without the desperation of needing to take whatever job they can get, people are able to be a bit more picky about where they choose to work.
This means that employers need to be competitive in what they bring to the table.
Differences in company culture, benefits packages, advancement opportunities, etc are being carefully scrutinized before a potential employee makes a final decision on whose team they will join.
People want to work where the pay is good and the benefits are generous, but they’re also concerned about something else.
