Meador News — Supply and Demand Portal

At Meador Staffing, we take the time to seek out tools that best help us help you. One of the tools we have recently made a high-price investment in is something called Supply and Demand Portal, provided by our partners at CareerBuilder. Talent pools grow and shrink depending on the labor demand by job type in particular markets. By understanding labor demand of the U.S. workforce, you can more effectively guide your recruitment strategy in terms of employment brand, compensation and overall advertising placement.

This economic data tool is available to you, our client, to help stay informed of what is going on in the industries we help you service. You will gain real-time access to the availability of active candidates for any position, salary compensation for a specific area, as well as locations where you will find the most and least competition is for that talent. Supply and Demand filters by geography, industry, company name, keywords related to specific skills, job title, certification, and education. In addition, you will be able to view trends from the last two years to adjust your recruitment strategy as needed. The portal’s accurate talent intelligence covers 90 percent of the online job market.

With the Supply and Demand Portal, the data presented to you, and with the costly investment made in this tool, in your business, we hope to provide you with the best possible results and outcomes when it comes to our services. This is an added service we will provide to you, used by less the five percent of the companies in the staffing industry.
