Unemployment in Russia is at a record low. According to Rosstat – 3.7%. Also, above all, there are not enough workers for the simpler specialties. According to a joint survey of the Rabota.ru portal and the Podrabotka service, most companies are faced with a shortage of sellers, locksmiths and workers. Drivers, chargers and electricians are difficult to find (for details, check the schedule).
According to experts, it all started with a pandemic. Then part of the migrants left Russia and could not return. At the same time, delivery services began to actively develop. In large numbers, couriers and drivers who could deliver goods were needed. This led part of the low-skilled workers to change their profession. Hence the shortage in many areas.
In addition, mass professions are characterized by high turnover. The employees are very logical. Similar vacant wagon. There is little point in clinging to a specific place. Especially if the working conditions are not satisfactory. At the same time, companies are in no hurry to increase the salaries of line personnel. A crisis is not the best time for this.
– Mass staff shortages are a tangible problem for the market. But the business has adapted. Companies have learned to cover the needs of temporary staff to the detriment of the self-employed. They invite specialists to perform specific jobs, – explains Alexander Veterkov, Director of Operations of the Podrabotka service.
According to experts, salaries increase, as a rule, not for mass personnel, but for skilled workers. They have the required skills and abilities. The shortage of such employees is even greater. And they bring more business benefits.
For example, in Moscow, according to SuperJob.ru, the salaries of confectioners, seamstresses and mechanics increased the most over the past year (by 15-20% on average). And furniture assemblers, welders, electricians, turners and millers are the most popular in the capital. Their average salary ranges from 80 to 200 thousand rubles a month. If you work in an office and get paid less, that’s a good reason to consider changing careers.
