Where You Work

In recruiting, internal or external, you work in the Old America. Now that we are through the Great Recession and firmly on the other side, we can see that the country has changed.

The unemployment numbers are still high and have been for a long time. The labor force participation rate is even worse and to get a true picture of employment in America you have to look at both. America is now a different place with fewer people working and fewer people doing significant work. That’s too bad, but it is reality and it’s here to stay.

However, America is not France and it never will be. We have a strong, productive, spirited business community and we have a significant group that is not participating. The Old America, the innovative and motivated one, is not going to change and it is clearly vibrant and moving forward.
