We’re not in Kansas anymore. Analysts claim wages are heating up, you know unemployment is low, and just about everyone is struggling with high turnover. Yeah, yeah; we know what’s running through your head: The good ol’ days are gone! There go my profits! Workers are getting too expensive, and none of them stick around!

need to attract workers away from other companies; these rising wages have the added bonus of drawing workers off the sidelines, increasing the labor supply. But because wages have been relatively stagnant for so long, workers haven’t been joining from the sidelines, which is why we’ve found ourselves in such a prolonged state of tight labor.

As you’ve likely come to expect from us, we have a different take on the matter. We don’t think the world is ending. In fact, we think there’s a pretty simple solution: Be on the forefront of the rising wages trend. It’s a real thing, and catching a wave before it catches you always puts you in the better position.

OUR JOB SEEKER SURVEY DATA CONFIRM IMPORTANCE OF PAY

GOVERNMENT FIGURES ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE: UP, DOWN, AND SIDEWAYS The American labor force participation rate (the percent of eligible workers who are working or looking for a job) is the lowest it has been for 50 years, and unemployment is at a similar low point. There’ve been more than 90 straight months of job gains but only about 24 months of wage growth over 2 percent (which is still low). In a typical market with low labor supply and growing demand, wages rise because employers Figure 1 JOB SEEKER CAREABOUTS (WEIGHTED ON A SCALE OF 7)

For the past three years, we’ve been tracking the thoughts and feelings of job seekers through a survey we call our Applicant Sentiment Index™. We ask everyone who applies with us to tell us how they feel about a couple of different facets of their local job market—and by “local job market” we mean ZIP code. We’re that precise. Naturally, one thing we ask about is wages; and, not surprisingly, we’ve come across two findings: 1) Pay ranks as the absolute most important factor job seekers consider when looking for a job (see Figure 1); and 2) Optimism about local wages is comparatively low and has declined slightly over the past couple of years (see Figure 2). The main takeaway here is that wages matter to your potential workforce, and there’s still room to wow them.

OUR EMPLOYER SURVEY DATA HELP ESTABLISH A STRONG STRATEGY The compensation data in this book, which we collected through our employer survey, differ from other information you probably have access to because we focus solely on starting pay and benefits for entry-level employees. Our data are protected from the influence of accrued wage raises and some post-waiting period benefits. This approach provides insight into the unique experience of attracting and hiring lesser-skilled workers, for which there are many competing opportunities and few barriers to entry. Here’s a high-level summary of our nationwide findings this year (see Figure 3): · MORE EMPLOYERS REPORT STARTING WAGE INCREASES. On a position-by-position basis, an average of 67% of employers report a starting wage increase for any given job. For production positions, that number hovers closer to 75%, and for administrative positions, it is closer to 60%. Compare this to 43%, 52%, and 31% respectively in 2017.

6


· MEDIAN STARTING WAGES INCREASE IN ALMOST EVERY POSITION. Nearly 90% of all positions saw an increase in the median starting wage, compared with only about 50% in 2017. A heightened median starting wage tells us employers at both the upper and lower ends of the pay scale are raising wages. · THERE’S CONSISTENCY IN THE AMOUNT OF RAISE GIVEN. Year after year, the median increase made by employers hovers somewhere between $0.50 and $0.74 per hour for nearly every position, and this year is no exception. That said, lower-skill (easy to fill) positions see smaller increases (between $0.25 and $0.49 per hour) while jobs with in-demand skill sets (hard to fill) see larger increases (about $1.00 per hour). · MANUFACTURING EMPLOYERS STILL OUTPACE THE COMPETITION. Talent attraction knows no industry boundaries. We continue to find disparities in pay rates and willingness to increase starting wages between manufacturing and distribution employers. Distributors have lower median wages in about 50% of job positions, and they report fewer wage increases. Figure 3 NATIONAL WAGE DATA MANUFACTURING SECTOR

While we absolutely believe the main reason for the wage increases we see is economic pressure to attract talent, we can’t ignore the influence of the regulatory environment. Many states (and a few locales) increased the mandated minimum wage last year and/or implemented annual indexing of the minimum wage, and a rising tide tends to lift all ships. Certainly, for some employers at the bottom of the pay scale, the minimum wage increase was significant enough it legally forced them to increase their own starting wage. IF WE HAVE TO SAY ONE THING BLUNTLY, IT’S THIS … If you want more workers, you need to pay better, and better means two things: better than current market rates, which are rising more quickly than they ever have, and better than job seekers in your local area expect because that will attract job seekers to you and draw sidelined workers into the labor market. We believe the regional sections of this book are a great starting point for setting your wage strategy—and/or to gain a broad understanding of the general trends taking place—but we always encourage you to seek other sources like your state Department of Labor, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, economic development commissions, chambers of commerce, industry trade organizations, and more.

INFORMATION COLLECTION Elwood Staffing compiled the information within from 835 anonymous responses to its May 2018 wage and benefits survey. A mix of client companies, business partners, and other employers received the survey. Responses represent the starting wages and benefits offered to employees regardless of permanent or temporary status or a business relationship with Elwood Staffing. REGIONS We divide and report responses by region using the Census Bureau’s regional divisions as a guide, a methodology the Bureau of Labor Statistics also employs in many of its regional reports. SECTORS To best serve the needs of our client base and offer opportunity for comparison across sectors, responses were divided into three categories for analysis.  Manufacturing This group includes only the respondents who self-identified with the manufacturing sector.

Distribution This group includes only the respondents who self-identified with the distribution sector.

All Sectors This group includes all respondents.

WAGE RANGES To eliminate data entry error, respondents selected hourly wage offerings for each position from a list broken into $0.50 buckets (e.g., $9.00-$9.49/hr). The wages listed throughout the document represent the top end of each range response.

Administrative Workers Less than $10.00–Greater than $20.00

Production Workers Less than $10.00–Greater than $20.00

WAGE DISTRIBUTION CATEGORIES MAX Max: the highest starting wage offered by any responding facility 75th percentile: 1 out of 4 responding facilities offers a higher starting wage 75th 50th percentile: 2 out of 4 responding facilities offer a higher starting wage 50th 25th percentile: 3 out of 4 responding facilities offer a higher starting wage 25th Min: the lowest starting wage offered by any responding facility MIN

CALCULATIONS Where applicable, we report two pieces of information: 1) the percent of respondents that offer a group of benefits; and 2) within that group, the percent that offer each specific benefit. For example, the following calculations apply when a group of 1,000 respondents answers a question about bonus pay:

· 700/1,000 = 70% of companies offer bonus pay, and of those that do ... · 400/700 = 57% offer a production bonus · 250/700 = 36% offer a holiday bonus · 345/700 = 49% offer a safety bonus · And so on ...

COMPANY AND TALENT REPORTS This is a special series of reports that provides a glimpse into Elwood’s strengths, organizational stability, engagement in the industry, and commitment to continuing success. APPLICANT SENTIMENT INDEX™ The Applicant Sentiment Index is Elwood Staffing’s only publicly shared index. As part of our standard application process, we ask every applicant to answer a set of questions anonymously so we can measure favorable or unfavorable sentiment toward three parts of the job seeker’s local employment landscape: jobs, wages, and willingness to commute. The sheer number of responses— about 100,000 each year—and the stability of the questions over time allow us to track shifts in workers’ mindsets to predict and prepare for market changes. ENGAGEMENT AND RETENTION GUIDES Complementary guides for all levels of influencers in your company, these two publications provide tips, tricks, and other bits of wisdom to immediately improve employee engagement and positively impact long-term retention. The Supervisors’ Guide | 9 Simple Ways to Keep Your Employees Happy on the Job In today’s world, where only 30% of workers are engaged and 17% are actively trying to do damage to their employers, creating a culture that focuses on continually improving the employment experience is critical. This short pocket guide is designed for line-level supervisors, and it provides engagement and retention strategies—with a strong focus on inclusion and social connections—that any supervisor can implement without upper management or budget committee approval. The Decision Makers’ Definitive Guide to Employee Engagement and Retention Leading a company is tough. Leading one in the right direction is even tougher. And the challenges just multiply as headcount increases. Backed by a little math and a little psychology, this book shares seven of the most critical components of employment satisfaction and delivers the tips and tricks upper-level management and C-suite executives need to make any company an attractive place to work. The piece is based upon the underlying principles of Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, offering an explanation of why certain factors affect one’s employment experience and chances of longevity more than others. WHITE PAPERS A collection of studies and reports to help you navigate the world of contingent staffing.
