Seasonal hiring in today's job market
Traditional holiday surges are still in play, but as e-commerce, m-commerce, and “digital” holidays like Black Monday continue their powerful growth trends, the competitive landscape of our customers shifts. And as shoppers continue to transfer to digital and mobile venues, the types of seasonal staffing needed to serve them changes as well.
New spikes in demand for specific types of candidates is leading to a newly-emerging supply/demand dynamic within the available candidate pool. Companies are beginning to adopt aggressive stratergies to secure their share of the seasonal worker pool – and many are finding that traditional means of hiring and recruiting just aren't enough.
