Hiregy recently released its 2017 Hiring Trends report, our annual review of the previous year’s hiring activity, wages and salaries, along with an analysis of trends to watch for in the coming months. The report includes data from Tampa, Orlando and surrounding communities. It’s free of charge and can be downloaded here.
Central Florida companies increased hiring in 2016, continuing a trend that started to emerge in 2014. The competitive labor market drove businesses to add more full-time employees rather than contract workers. Our region saw a surge in customer service, sales and real estate jobs, while also adding jobs in human resources and finance.
The Tampa Bay and Orlando regions benefited from their large pool of affordable labor, as well as their sunny climates and business-friendly rules and regulations. Companies looking to expand or relocate to Central Florida needed to compete for the best hires, which resulted in wage growth and enhanced benefit packages.
