Know your workforce
Monday, October 19, 2015
Businesses that need to recruit employees benefit from understanding the size, demographics and motivations of the labor pool. A recent Nebraska state survey evaluated many of these areas.
Questions were asked about worker skill or education level, compensation expectations and willingness to commute, for instance. Thanks to the survey, we have a better understanding of Fremont’s available labor pool. We know, for example, that 99 percent of those surveyed are willing to retrain or learn new job skills.
With this knowledge, we can help businesses tailor their recruitment efforts and be more proactive with new job training initiatives. Learn more about the findings of the Nebraska Labor Availability Study of Northeast Nebraska: http://ow.ly/KvTCL
