Specialty Fabrics Review January 2022 - 29

T
he pandemic may be loosening its
stranglehold in many parts of the U.S.
but its effects are still being felt across
the country in the form of supply issues,
logistic and transportation challenges, and labor
shortages. The latter may be the most vexing
of all for business owners who see the jobs
coming back but not the workforce, a situation
constraining the ability to ramp up operations as
fully as desired. The pain appears widespread.
" Just about every company I work with or have
spoken to is currently experiencing hiring challenges, "
says Chad Sorenson, president of Adaptive HR
Solutions, a Jacksonville, Fla., company providing
customized leadership development, management
training, performance management, employee relations
and other solutions to a broad spectrum of industries.
" These range from not being able to find the right
talent to realizing the starting wages of new employees
are exceeding the wages of those who have been with
the company for quite some time, " Sorenson continues.
" The number of people in the workforce has shrunk
since the pandemic. There isn't one reason why the
workforce is smaller, but rather each industry and
geographic region have their own challenges. However,
nationwide there are 1 to 2 million more job openings
than there are people currently looking for a new job. "
This has resulted in an exceedingly difficult hiring
environment, as Brian Richardson, president of L & A
Tent & Event Rentals Inc., will attest. The Hamilton,
N.J., company does about 100 weddings annually
but concentrates on the educational and corporate
event sectors and on ER response venues, among
others. Before the pandemic the company had 37 nonmanagement
staff members. Now it's operating with 15.

to make installs more efficient and to help avoid worker
fatigue and burnout, especially when more work is falling
on fewer install staff. BOTTOM: L & A Tent & Event Rentals

install. In addition to weddings the company focuses on the
educational, corporate and event segments and has become
more selective about the jobs it accepts. Photos: Envious
