Employing Omaha – May 2020

Employing Omaha

This is the first-ever Employing Omaha feature in Strictly Business, and it sure came at an interesting time. We’ve been excited about the launch of this feature for almost a year but waited to work it into our editorial calendar at the most optimal time of year, keeping it spaced out from our Supporting Nonprofits and Joining Organizations features. However, when we slated this feature to run in the May issue, we could have never predicted the state our economy would be in as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

For a minute, we considered pulling the feature and waiting for the next scheduled feature issue (November 2020). However, we decided to move forward with it. The reason being that, while there are many businesses that have been forced to layoff wonderful employees or, at the very least, pause their hiring efforts, there are also still companies recruiting during this time—and even more so in some cases. Plus, with the unemployment rate rising by the day, this is a good time for companies that are still hiring to showcase their team culture, benefits, company values, available positions, etc. to an audience of skilled workers looking for the next step in their career path.

At Strictly Business, we truly believe that Omaha is a wonderful place to live, WORK, and play. We are honored to partner with so many reputable employers, and we are proud to tell you a little bit about a few of them in this feature. Whether you have recently found yourself “between jobs” or you’re curious about pursuing a new passion, we encourage you to read through the following write-ups to learn about employment opportunities at some amazing local companies. In addition, if you are currently with a company that is looking to add people to your team, please reach out to us about participating in our next employment feature! Though we know budgets and resources are tighter than ever, we truly believe that companies that continue to promote their values during this time will come out on top.
