Help Wanted: The Best Way To Recruit Qualified Workers In Las Vegas

May 6, 2021 3:17:50 PM / by Larry Julius

The number of job openings in the Las Vegas area has exceeded pre-pandemic levels, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  Businesses of all sizes are adding employees in a big way, according to the ADP Research Institute, but still, large numbers of positions remain unfilled.

With the Nevada unemployment rate still at 8.1%, Las Vegas business owners wonder why they are having difficulty attracting applicants for open positions.

According to a recent article posted in The Economist, there are two major reasons why many sidelined workers aren't anxious to come to work. The first is fear.

How To Bring Employees Back To Your Las Vegas Small Business

May 9, 2020 8:28:14 AM / by Larry Julius

In January, Clark County small business owners were in a panic. The unemployment rate was at a record low 4.0%, and there were not enough workers to fill their open jobs. 

As of today, though, Nevada is reporting that at least one-in-five of the state's workforce have lost their jobs for COVID-19 related reasons. Yet, many small business owners are still struggling to find employees.

According to The Wall Street Journal, "For some workers, unemployment benefits are now paying more than their old jobs did. For others, safety concerns or a lack of child care, as most schools and day-care centers remain closed, are making them hesitant to go back."

“That’s going to get in the way of any real recovery,” Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of American Action Forum and former director of the Congressional Budget Office, told WSJ.

The struggle to hire employees creates an additional threat for those Nevada small business owners who received loans under the SBA's Paycheck Protection Program.  

To qualify for the loan forgiveness provision of the PPP, business owners must restore its workforce to pre-Coronavirus levels. This must be accomplished within eight weeks of receiving the monies.

So, just like in January, local small business owners are under pressure to fill open jobs. Advertising on Las Vegas radio is a potent way to attract and hire the needed employees.

Recruitment Advertising: Reach 93% Of Qualified Candidates In Las Vegas

Dec 19, 2019 11:31:00 AM / by Larry Julius

Clark County small business owners need employees...desperately.

According to a report from the National Federation of Independent Business, 26% of small business owners say finding qualified workers is their number one problem. 

The report goes on to say that 88% of small business owners looking to hire new employees are finding there are no qualified candidates.

The historically low unemployment figures in Las Vegas appears to be the root cause of local hiring woes. The metro area's jobless rate stands at 4.0%. There are just not enough qualified workers to go around.

Most small business owners have exhausted the traditional methods of recruitment. These include online job board posts, newspaper ads, referral bonuses, and help wanted signs. All to no avail.

To successfully attract the qualified applicants they yearn for, local small business owners need to command the attention of 'passive' job seekers. The number one source for these candidates is Las Vegas radio.
