Orlando Is the Theme Park Capital of the World and the Next Silicon Valley

Businesses are leaving Silicon Valley and looking for other cities to build their empires. Why you may ask? Silicon Valley is located in Southern California where the living expenses are incredibly high. The average median rent for a two-bedroom apartment according to Forbes is $3,080. This can mean expensive overhead for those with business offices. According to Forbes, California has an 8.84% corporate tax, which is one of the highest in the United States. Many companies have already started to go elsewhere, including big name companies.

How Staffing Firms Can Boost Your Company

Bad hires are hard to measure. The U.S. Department of Labor reported the cost of a bad hire to be at least 30% of an employee’s first-year earnings. The monetary value of a bad hire may be calculated, however, it is hard to see how a bad hire affected your employees, work progress, etc. SHRM places the cost of a new employee to be as much as $240,000, including recruitment and onboarding costs.

Degrees Are Good, But So Are Social Skills

We all know the importance of a degree. Degrees may suggest that you have the necessary skills or knowledge to perform a job, but they do not guarantee you would be a good employee or fit for the company. Strong communication in the workplace ensures synergy and improved business results. Employers want to know if a potential employee is going to work well with the team or if that person is going to disrupt company flow. For example, software engineers and other similar professions need interpersonal skills almost as much as they need the right coding skills.
