Will you need to hire skilled labor in 2019?

Is your labor pool changing?

Do you have a plan to find and attract diverse workers?

The Hiring Landscape Has Changed

It’s no longer enough to post another help-wanted sign on your building. The Minnesota labor shortage, shifting workforce demographics along with our evolving culture and ever-changing media technology have all converged to recast labor recruitment. Labor Day Project addresses these factors with a combination of grass-roots research, employee modeling, engaging immersive technology and targeted social media.

Labor Day Project Can Help

Labor Day Project offers employers a recruitment tool that is prospect-centered, culturally aware and socially driven. Our purpose is to help start the employment conversation with diverse candidates. What makes us different is our process that puts prospects first.

Our Method

Learn: Putting prospects first means learning all we can about them, especially how they communicate, how they garner employment information, and what they believe are their obstacles or barriers to employment.  We want to meet their influencers and enlist their support. Frank discussions will lead to new understanding.

Create: Through video interviews, your employees from these diverse cultures relate their pride, their job satisfaction and how they have overcome perceived or actual obstacles to have a fulfilling work life. We create multiple, short interview videos from a single filming session, each focusing on a different aspect of overcoming obstacles and achieving job success. And, we use immersive 360VR video technology to engage and hold prospects' attention.

Deploy: Social media analytics enable the targeting of our multi-video campaign to the prospects’ social media accounts. And social media sharing of our immersive content multiplies our reach and impact. Our experts will help you deploy this new content effectively on your existing social media platforms.

What’s different?

Our focus is on the success of your diverse employees in overcoming the same obstacles your prospects may see before them. Potential racial, gender or ethnic biases, scars of military service, lack of transportation or childcare… these and many other realities can play a role in one’s self image, impacting confidence levels and creating self-doubt about their ability to land and keep a good job... a job that could turn into a great career. Labor Day Project helps start the conversation with your prospects about those employment obstacles.
