While the pandemic has strained economies nationwide, Salt Lake City has muscled through, becoming the strongest job market in the country. With the city’s volume hiring needs surging, one of its leading recruitment firms is leveraging its experience in the Utah market to fill needs quickly.
With nearly 30 years as a respected placement firm in Salt Lake, PrincePerelson is known for its insights into the unique needs of Utah businesses and its extensive talent network in the greater Salt Lake area. While the city’s unexpected job growth has caught many recruiting teams off guard, PrincePerelson said its connections in the market have enabled the firm to keep up with the demand for qualified candidates.
“Salt Lake had a strong market going into the pandemic, but few people could have predicted how well they would perform during a tough time,” said CEO Jill Perelson. “We’ve kept a very close eye on trends and been able to scale up to support our clients’ growing hiring needs ahead of the curve.”
According to the Wall Street Journal, no other area expanded its labor force the way that Salt Lake City did during the pandemic. The Journal’s findings were based on a report of 53 regions, each with more than a million residents. They stratified cities based on unemployment rates, wages, workforce size, and payrolls.
The Journal said that Salt Lake thrived due to its less-restrictive public health mandates, young and well-educated workforce, and up-and-coming tech sector, which was booming going into the pandemic. While the national unemployment rate hovers at 6%, Utah’s is less than 3%.
PrincePerelson said that its clients have felt almost overnight increases in manpower needs as Salt Lake’s economy has flourished in recent months. This has left companies struggling to meet hiring demands.
“Companies rarely have the technology and connections needed to locate, screen, and qualify applicants in short amounts of time, and they often end up sacrificing quality,” said Perelson. “We have processes and networks in place to help companies find high volumes of quality candidates on-demand.”
PrincePerelson’s Volume Hiring Division has seen the highest demands as companies look to bring on more customer service and client success representatives as well as sales representatives.
PrincePerelson won the “Best of Salt Lake City Award” in the Employment Agencies Division, Utah Business’s “Best Places to Work” award, as well as Staffing Industry Analyst’s “Fastest Growing U.S. Staffing Firms Award.” To learn more about how PrincePerelson is helping Salt Lake City companies scale up quickly to meet hiring demands, visit https://perelson.com or call (801) 532-1000.
