The United States economy is rapidly recovering from COVID-19 and the lockdown-induced recession. Businesses, however, are facing a new host of challenges.
For one, costs are skyrocketing. Supply chains remain unpredictable. Raw materials are expensive. And as a result, the Producer Price Index has climbed nearly 7 percent since this time last year—the metric’s largest increase on record.
For another, labor markets are tight. Driven by enhanced federal unemployment benefits and workers hesitant to risk the virus, businesses across the country are having trouble filling positions.
These interrelated challenges—high input prices and low labor supply—are offering a massive threat to companies with frontline workforces. Even as the economy rebounds, paying competitive wages is harder than ever.
Maybe competitive wages aren’t the only way to stand out in this labor market.
78 percent of employee exits have nothing to do with wages. Instead, most workers quit because of work environment, lack of promotional opportunities, flexibility, and other nonwage factors. In other words—beyond a focus on boosting wages, employers ought to revamp the way that they do frontline workforce management.
