Businesses Are Struggling To Hire. The pandemic has created a workforce that is pickier than in years past, and this isn’t likely to change any time soon. They want to work from home (at least part of the time) and to know their workplace is safe, and they want to know their work is valued. Here’s what some businesses are doing to attract attention and to fill vacancies.

A Focus On Wellness. Several businesses have started providing various resources for employees. This includes child care services to help ease the burden many parents face. Others are subsidizing various health and wellness programs, including paying for some or all gym or training memberships. Some employers are even paying for their employees to further their education.

A Focus On Vaccination. As the COVID-19 vaccine reaches more communities, businesses are doling out bonuses for employees who get the vaccine. Some businesses are even tacking on bonuses to new hires who come on already vaccinated.
