Now many of them are desperately looking for more.

It is also a boon for staffing agencies, which match firms with potential hires.

这对人力资源机构来说也是一个福音,这些机构为公司匹配潜在的雇员。

Beyond short-term dislocations to the workforce, the changing way in which people want to work should keep the recruiters busy.

Covid-19 dented revenues at staffing agencies as employers slowed hiring amid the recession and employees hesitated to jump ship.

Vacancies are up in much of the rich world, as companies seek staff while workers still anxious about infection remain on the sidelines.

许多发达国家的职位空缺都在增加,因为公司在寻找员工,而仍担心感染风险的员工仍在观望。

The result is a bump in wages, which can be bigger for those ready to defect to a new employer.

其结果是工资上涨,对于那些准备跳槽的人来说,涨幅可能会更大。

The fortunes of recruiters — and their share prices — closely track economic-confidence indicators.

But the resurgence has been especially rapid this time.

但这次复苏的速度尤其快。
