There’s one unemployed guy left in the Shenandoah Valley.

His name is Bill. 

Who wants him?

OK, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration.

But if you’ve tried to fill open positions lately, you know there sure aren’t many people left in unemployment lines.  With the rate of employment in Harrisonburg-Staunton-Waynesboro and surrounding areas now over 96%, nearly everyone who wants to work is already working.

The good news is most companies we’ve talked with prefer to target their search beyond those actually looking for work.  Most HR people want to target those already employed.  If that sounds like you, please read on…we have the solution!

At the Harrisonburg Radio Group we have partnered with recruitment and retention expert Chris Stonick, President of Stonick Recruitment Inc, a nationally recognized recruitment consulting firm based out of Lakeland, Florida.   Featured in an HR Magazine article entitled “Turn up the Radio Recruiting”, Chris’ focus is on new, cost efficient ways to get your recruiting message to the right people using the magic of radio.

During a recent seminar at Spotswood Country Club and sponsored by the Harrisonburg-Rockingham County Chamber of Commerce, Chris said “Newspaper classifieds have been around for over 50 years.  How many things do we do the same way we did 50 years ago?  Not many.  The advanced technology of recruitment is here today!  It’s called Radio.”

With expert training from Stonick Recruitment, the Recruitment team at Harrisonburg Radio Group will show you how to apply the Stonick Recruitment no-nonsense approach to not only attracting BETTER employees, but keeping them as well.  All without increasing your current HR-Recruitment budget.
