Recruit, Retain, and Reward Key Employees

Recruiting Key Employees and Executives
Building a high-performing organization has always been critical to maintaining your firms competitive market position. In today’s employment market, that’s even more difficult as workforce changes are creating:

  • A shortage of qualified workers in almost all crucial areas, a trend most likely to continue as baby boomers continue to retire.
  • This smaller, experienced, talent pool creates an even greater competition to recruit and hire “top” performers. This has stimulated higher salaries, more benefits and even signing bonuses for key recruits.
  • Employee turnover, especially in key positions, is costly for businesses in lost time, lower work productivity, quality problems, lower income and even lost customers.

Utah experiencing rapid population growth

You already knew that Utah is growing rapidly but here are the facts to support that awareness. Utah’s current population in 2016 was 3,061,160. According to the Gardner Policy Institute at the University of Utah, our state’s population is expected to grow to 3,829,201 by the year 2030 (+25%). While that may sound like big growth, competition for hiring top talent is certain to be region wide throughout the Western U.S. Utah’s projected growth of almost 800k new citizens is just 6.6% of the total Western U.S. projected growth of 11.8 million new Westerners! That means that other Western states will be recruiting our most talented people. Attracting and retaining qualified employees in this high growth environment presents an unprecedented recruiting challenge for competitive companies to keep up with population driven business growth while defending your employees from other companies throughout the West.
