Unique Recruiting Challenge: Hiring for HawaiiPosted by mgwhite
Are you tasked with the responsibility of recruiting employees to work in Hawaii from the U.S mainland? While it may seem at first thought that it will be easy to find people who want to live in this island paradise, the reality might not be as you expected. While Hawaii is a beautiful spot, relocating to the Aloha State is not something that appeals to everyone.
Even though Hawaii is gorgeous and has a wonderful climate, the distance from the mainland might be a deterrent to people who are concerned about how to maintain relationships with family members and friends across such as distance. After all, it takes a while to travel to the mainland from Hawaii and plane tickets can be quite expensive.
Distance isn’t the only concern. People are often concerned about how the cost of real estate in any area where they are interested in relocating compares to the area they will be leaving. When you are recruiting for jobs in Hawaii, it’s essential to provide truthful information to candidates about what the Hawaii real estate market is really like.
People who are thinking about moving to Hawaii are also concerned about what employment prospects for their family members are like on the island where the position is located. The website of the Hawaii Department of Labor and Industrial Relations and the website of the Hawaii Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism are two of the bet resources to use when talking to candidates. It provides a wealth of information about all types of relevant employment information.
