The Labor Department recently reported a new pandemic low for the four-week moving average in unemployment claims.

Despite the uncertainty of the Delta variant and how this will continue to effect businesses’ ability to return to pre-pandemic systems, the workforce is growing.

During the month of July, 943,000 jobs were added which was the largest gain in 11 months.

Business is ticking back up, but there’s a lot to consider when hiring today. ideascape has audited workforce health trends this past year, leading to significant findings regarding the future of hybrid work models.
