The United States offers mini-labs on employment laws, costs, etc. Several states are now avoided due to excessive costs to employers. California is one state often cited. Changes to minimum wage requirements are also causing some companies to eliminate certain states. Make sure to understand the costs and regulations associated with each state so you can focus your sourcing spend on the most attractive markets and reduce your employment risk. Some companies set-up recruiting zones that cover large geographic areas but still small enough so that recruiting teams can focus concentrated resources for advertising, local recruiting events, and other creative ways to take a virtual process and create engagement and candidate interaction.
