Workforce Priorities Have Changed

The labor market has shifted quickly since 2020 in ways that few could have predicted. Coming out of the pandemic, the workforce has reconsidered their priorities, left companies they were with for years or decades, and now have the freedom to choose their role/hours given the rise in workforce marketplaces, and technology allowing a consistent flow of project based consulting work. Given LABR’s position serving clients in an array of industries and roles, we want to share some of our observations.

The Shift in Manual Labor Compensation

Over the past year, a notable trend has emerged in the labor market. Positions requiring intense manual labor, such as landscaping and construction, are now commanding higher compensation than in previous years. This shift underscores the increasing value placed on reliable workers in industries that depend on manual tasks. LABR recognizes this trend and is committed to providing clients with the caliber of workers that not only meet but exceed these rising demands.

Distribution Jobs: A Worker Favorite

Among the array of opportunities LABR offers, distribution jobs have emerged as a clear favorite among workers. The appeal lies not only in the tangible and dynamic nature of the work but also in the sense of purpose that comes with ensuring products reach their intended destinations efficiently. This preference for distribution roles speaks volumes about workers preference to be empowered to pick the shifts, jobs, and companies they work with.

Events: Where Passion Meets Purpose

In addition to distribution jobs, events have become a standout favorite among workers. Whether it’s contributing to the seamless execution of a corporate event or being a part of a community celebration, the allure of events lies in the opportunity to play a role in creating memorable experiences. This preference underscores the desire for work that not only pays the bills but also brings a sense of fulfillment.

Freedom to Choose: A Game-Changing Approach

At LABR, we understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to work preferences. Workers today are seeking more than just a job; they’re in pursuit of an experience that aligns with their lifestyles. That’s why we empower workers with the ability to select the days and jobs that resonate with them, all without the burden of long-term commitments. This flexibility not only enhances job satisfaction but also leads to a more engaged and motivated workforce.

Test Driving Your Future

In today’s labor market, workers are increasingly seeking opportunities to “test drive” potential employers before committing to a permanent position. This trend reflects a desire for mutual fit and alignment between the worker and the client. LABR recognizes the importance of this process and supports both workers and clients in finding the best match for their respective needs.
