4 employment trends organizations should pay attention to in 2020

LaSalle Network works with hundreds of CEOs, CFOs and HR leaders annually on hiring and retaining their people. Based on the conversations, below is what we expect to see in 2020:

Great jobs market will continue: It's a great economy for people to find a job at a company they really enjoy. Hiring isn't going to slow down in 2020. The latest jobs reports have been great, and companies are looking to add headcount and the economy is in a good spot as we head into the New Year. Employers should focus on retaining their top players in the year ahead as more employees come to realize the opportunities that exist.

Some of the top industries we'll continue to see hiring are in healthcare and technology. Additionally, revenue-driving positions like sales and marketing will continue to be in-demand as companies work to remain competitive in today's business landscape.

Employees want training and development: Training and development will be key for not only recruiting and hiring, but increasing employee engagement and retention, too. Today's employees value training and development and have come to expect it from businesses. Think about if you'd be willing to invest a substantial amount of money into training a potential employee during the interview process, and if the answer is no, they are not the right fit for your organization.
