New York City has a number of employers opening up in the city and a lot of employers are seeing it as a good opportunity to grow their workforce.AFLAC is encouraging businesses to be proactive about who they contact to work with.
“When people have an opportunity to work, they need to be looking to work for the best possible experience.
So, to make sure you’re not wasting people’s time, you need to make an effort to get them the best work possible,” said Jill Tice, AFLAC president and CEO.
Tice says when an employer gets a call, they have to know where to go to find more information and the right person to talk to.
“The best way to do that is to make a referral to the company’s HR department, the person that they have in their network, or even call them directly,” Tice said.
“If you’re working with an employer and they’re hiring people for their current location, make sure to find out about their current workforce.”
If you have an open position and need a call in, contact the HR department directly and tell them about your need.
“Hiring is hard and we’re in the midst of an economic crisis,” said Julie Smith, director of communications for the City of New York Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
“Employers have a lot to worry about, and so they’re taking advantage of the opportunity that’s here.
And if people want to make that a priority, they should do that as well,” she said.
New York City is expecting to see an additional 10,000 people added to its workforce by 2021.

He said that after a major economic crisis, many employers are now looking for ways to find workers for new jobs.
“We are seeing a lot more of employers looking for help, but they’re not necessarily finding the right people to fill those positions.
They’re not filling those positions,” he said.

The mayor has also started a campaign called “Make Work New York,” that is encouraging employers to find and hire people for new positions.
