Low unemployment is fantastic! It means that folks who want and need jobs have them. But there is a tipping point -a point at which there isn’t enough labor for all the jobs becoming available -and we’re just about there. Right now Omaha has a 2.9% unemployment rate, which is extremely low. I work with several business owners and HR professionals who are having a tough time finding qualified candidates right now. My best advice: please remember to help each other out with your networks and social tools. If you have a need, whether it’s around talent or otherwise, voice it to your network. You might be surprised by the support you receive, and please consider me part of that network!
