Franklin Street Atlanta’s Monetha Cobb was quoted in the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s feature on hiring trends during the pandemic. The article shows that there has been a month to month decrease in labor force participation that is not expected to significantly improve anytime soon- in part due to the nation’s shifting demographic. The feature also explores in-depth research on hiring and employment trends in a post-pandemic environment.
For the feature, Monetha explains how Franklin Street is still securing top talent despite the tough competition:
“Competition for top talent is at an all-time high… We’re seeing applicants using our offers to negotiate better terms with their current employer and more people wanting to work from home 100% of the time. It takes longer to get the right fit these days, but we get there thanks to our culture and work environment,” she said.
