According to the latest reports, a major company in the security services sector has made a huge announcement. Allied Universal, a big name in the security services space has announced its intentions of going on a hiring spree.
The company has revealed that it aims to do hiring on a very large scale. Although the company’s goal is simple and promising, yet it may turn out to be a difficult gig for the company to pull off. Many observers have commented that hiring employees on a large scale would not be as easy as many think it would be.
Allied Universal has announced that it is planning to carry out mass hiring and intends to hire 35,000 employees in total. However, the company has revealed that it intends to do it in the next couple of months, which would be extremely difficult.
Due to the pandemic, the unemployment rate has to experience a significant increase. Until the month of April, the total unemployment rate in the country has surged all the way up to 6.1%. The current unemployment data shows that more than 8 million in the United States are without employments.
This is a really large number to fill and Allied Universal is one of the major companies willing to help boost the company. Even with the current circumstances and the pandemic playing a huge role in unemployment, Allied Universal would still find it hard to hire that many employees.
Allied Universal’s senior vice president of talent acquisition and recruiting, Morgan Price talked about the current condition of the market. Price stated that the current condition of the market is very risky and dwindling.
Despite the surge in the unemployment rate, it is still very difficult to hire employees. The major reason behind the difficulty is that it is not just Allied Universal aiming to hire people. There are many companies all over the country aiming to fill up many empty spots but are faced with the same problem.
Several companies are now battling with each other in order to hire the most competent and hard-working employees. People are moving towards platforms that they find easier to understand and grasp. Therefore, the companies are constantly competing with each other to hire as many employees as possible.
On top of that, the companies have reported that they are also facing a lot of challenges even bringing the candidates to the companies. Due to the COVID, the companies have to adhere to the SOPs and ensure that they do not crowd the waiting areas and receptions.
Therefore, it is too difficult to meet the target of achieving 35,000 new employees target in the next couple of months.
