Employers are in the midst of one of the most challenging labor markets in recent memory, one in which we find HR departments struggling to attract and retain employees at any price. Some of the challenges are a direct result of the pandemic, but much of the struggles have been long in the making. This informative session will provide timely insights from ASE’s recent benchmarking activity including the 2022 ASE Michigan Compensation Survey. The session will include a review of salary movement based on data collected in early 2022 as well as important economic factors that have and will continue to impact local wages and salaries.
