Express Experts Weigh In
Malvern, PA, 9/5/2017 – Express Employment Professionals released a new white paper offering 10 places to grow the workforce at a time of low unemployment.
With unemployment hitting new lows and job openings hitting new highs, finding workers can be a near-impossible task for some employers. To grow the workforce, policymakers and employers need to be prepared to rethink long-held assumptions and challenge conventional wisdom.
The new paper, titled, “Help Wanted: A Road Map to Finding More Workers,” is informed by the experiences of Express owners from across the country and identifies 10 areas for policymakers and employers to grow the workforce:
1. Restructure Assistance Programs
2. Add Work Requirements to Assistance Programs
3. Improve Access to Training and Re-Training Programs
4. Fight the Opioid Crisis
5. Use Drug Testing in Smarter Ways
6. Modernize Disability Programs
7. Improve Workplace Flexibility
8. “Ban the Box” or Questions About Criminal Records
9. Improve the Immigration System
10. Pay Higher Wages and Promote Worker Growth
