Who Is Calling the Shots?


We’ve been hearing endlessly about the Great Resignation and how the workforce of America has been engaged in a round of music chairs swapping positions. Now we are hearing more and more about a looming recession, the expectation that economic pressures will put employers back in the drivers’ seat at the office.

It’s not happening yet, though.

“We have not started to see it so far,” says Thomas Vick, Dallas-based Regional Director for Talent Solutions and Business Consulting firm Robert Half, the top hiring firm in the country. “We continue to see this as a candidate-driven market and that candidates are getting multiple offers and having opportunities come to them by the day.”

Robert Half conducted a Job Optimism Report that finds 4 in 10 workers hope to be in a different job by the end of the year, driven mostly by two concerns: higher pay and more flexibility. A third of them are just plain burned out.

It’s still a workers’ market. “Nationwide, there are still two jobs out there posted for every one person who is unemployed, so we still have a scenario where this is a candidate driven market and they remain in control,” adds Vick.
