Hire Dynamics Celebrates 20 Years, Putting Over 625 People to work Each Day in Savannah
"Here in Savannah, we put over 625 people to work a day and aim to fill more than 150 positions in manufacturing, contact centers, office support and e-commerce/logistics at warehouses and distribution centers," Savannah Regional Manager Lori Pitt said. "We are adept in helping people reenter the workforce, even during a global pandemic."
Pitt recently helped connect Savannah area job seekers with potential positions in anticipation of a busy holiday season during Hire Dynamics' annual companywide "HirePalooza"
Hire Dynamics was co-founded in 2001 by Chief Operating Officer Jon Neff and Executive Chairman Dan Campbell.
Savannah area unemployment fell from 8.4% in July 2020 to 3.1% in July 2021, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The national unemployment rates fell from 10.5 to 5.7% in the same period.
"The pandemic also accelerated jobs in e-commerce,"
Pitt says the job market will continue to evolve in the years ahead, with emerging demand for skilled trades.
"The job market is shifting from traditional jobs requiring a four-year degree to less traditional careers that allow for more work-life balance and options," she added. "We're seeing more job-entry opportunities through apprenticeship programs and for technical school graduates."
"In the future, we'll also continue to see some jobs that have been traditionally performed by humans replaced by robotics," said Campbell. "While there are some jobs that will always require human beings, in many cases automation has the upper hand. This is a substantial up-front cost for companies but over time it can even out and help businesses save money."
While the pandemic-driven trend of working from home may be here to stay for some, Pitt says service industries such as manufacturing, logistics and e-commerce will continue to have little migration to remote work.
"Business owners should also expect the momentum to build in regulations that benefit employees," said Neff. "These include the Affordable Care Act, family leave, vaccine regulations, minimum wage increase, and the Americans with Disabilities Act."
