Hot Candidates for a Cool September

As the Autumnal Equinox arrives, temps are set to drop from the summer-like conditions we have been enjoying. Even though temps are dropping, the situation remains “Hot” in recruiting!  Covid is receding, and remote work situations continue to remain at the forefront of our efforts here at Integritas. We set out every day to meet and evaluate the best candidates in HR, accounting, IT, and manufacturing-based roles. Make sure to congratulate our new IT recruiter, Ben Banik on his first placement with Integritas – an IT director at a manufacturing company in NW Indiana!

While we are aware of remote work requests and are working with our clients on understanding this need, we realize many workers are heading back to the office. Check out this blurb from one of our fav news sources, The Morning Brew:

“Fall is just about here, and workers across the US are putting on pants and heading back to the office. In 10 major metro areas, average office use between Sept. 8 and Sept. 14 was back up to 47.5% of what it was in early 2020, according to Kastle Systems, a company that tracks keycard swipes. That’s the highest it’s been since Covid shutdowns got rolling. Still, most folks seem to prefer working in their jammies close to the weekend—midweek days had the most office entries.” – Morning Brew
