Trends in Printing Recruiting and Talent Acquisition
Our Printing recruiting team partners with companies across the industry value-chain to provide the right talent quickly, flexibly and affordably.
Here are trends in the printing industry driving key talent acquisition requirements:
- Software and Digital / Program Management Recruiting and Expert Consultants
Technology continues to change the printing industry with customer looking for accessible software that will enable them to better manage all aspects of their print and marketing needs in real time and enabling “just in time” delivery. This requires increased software capabilities and automation for printing companies. This requires increased software / I/T and automation expertise and talent along with program management capabilities to lead large client customization efforts.
- Marketing / Pricing / Executive Leadership Recruiting and Expert Consultants
Profitability challenges require some combination of lower costs, higher prices, and/or increased sales. Too often, printers focus on costs and sales and ignore pricing and utilization rates. There is a need for marketing and executive leadership talent to develop a more nuanced and complete view of the relationships between costs, price, and utilization rates. The fact that a typical printing job is composed of 40 percent fixed costs and 60 percent variable costs provides printers with a lot of discretion in pricing that must be managed effectively in a competitive environment. Acquiring talent that can effectively manage this complexity is critical and often comes from outside the print industry.
- Human Resources Recruiting and Expert Consultants
Profit-leading printers have a much stronger focus on human resources management, particularly training and education. Employees should perceive equity in sharing gains in good years and pains in bad years. – Attaining talent in HR and compensation that understand how to build effective reward systems is critical in the print industry.
