Let’s look at four labor market trends that suggest some key strategies you might consider 1. Large numbers of long-term unemployed and parttime workers 2. Seasonal layoff patterns 3. Increasing population diversity 4. Changing employment patterns in occupations and industries

12,000,000 10,000,000 8,000,000 6,000,000 4,000,000 2,000,000 0 Total Unemployed Long-Term Unemployed Part-Time Workers Who Want Full-Time Work

• From July 2012 thru June 2013 RochesterWorks! served 30,418 job seeker customers. • 59% of them were Dislocated Workers.

Why hire them? • Number of Discouraged Workers is declining • Part-time workers want to work. • Both groups likely have the “soft skills” you need • There are $$ available to help cover on-the-job training costs

Strategies • Hire new employees from December thru February • If you typically lay off during this timeframe, could you use the time to strategically retain and train your most valuable employees?

15.8 Million US Workers, aged 55 and over 79,000 Monroe County workers, aged 55 and over

Groups to strategically recruit • • • • • Younger workers Older workers Women Racial and ethnic minorities Individuals with disabilities and veterans
