Business aviation hiring is expected to remain robust in 2023, as the industry continues to experience strong demand for industry professionals. Despite some potential economic uncertainties on the horizon, employers are expected to continue to encounter job candidates whose priorities are not simply higher compensation. “Pay is obviously the big driver” in looking for a new job, notes Jennifer Guthrie, CEO of In-Flight Crew Connections. “But second to that is quality of life, benefits and [the question of] is it a better company for them and their family?”
In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Jennifer Guthrie, CEO, In-Flight Crew Connections
Jennifer Pickerel, vice president, Aviation Personnel International
Recently, NBAA spoke with four business aviation young professionals about how important it has been for them to find jobs with employers with a just and welcoming organizational culture. Today's podcast discusses why it's important that aviation managers understand their role in creating a culture that values employees' perspectives.
As competition for qualified personnel from other aviation industry segments looks to remain strong in 2024, employers continue to review and reconsider their approaches to hiring so they can bring new business aviation professionals into their companies.
Attracting the next generation of business aviation professionals is a top priority throughout the industry, and local and regional groups are often the first point-of-contact for students and young people seeking information about the industry and its potential opportunities.
