On September 8,2011 President Obama addressed a joint session of Congress where he outlined the American Jobs Act. In a follow up story, CNN reported that the passing of the entire act would likely take months. Time the American people do not have.
With 25 million Americans un/underemployed and 52% of employers struggling to find skilled workers, it is evident that the gap between candidates and employers is growing at an alarming rate. Acacia HR Solutions is uniquely poised to bridge this gap. Offering both job seeker and recruiting services, Acacia HR Solutions works both sides of the unemployment line. An overwhelming amount of candidates per open position makes it difficult for businesses, especially those without a dedicated recruiting staff, to properly screen, interview and make effective hiring decisions in a timely manner. At the same time, job seekers are frustrated with the daunting job search process and are constantly fighting myths associated with long term unemployment.
"There are more than enough skilled workers to fill the open positions businesses have today," says Sabrina Baker, PHR, President of Acacia HR Solutions. "Working on both sides of the job search process gives me the ability to better understand candidate knowledge, skills and abilities and fit them to a prospective employer. Offering two placements for the price of one just means that more job seekers find work faster and that is what matters here."
Whether or not the American Jobs Act passes, Acacia HR Solutions is committed to bettering the workforce during a time when businesses and job seekers need it the most.
