Recruiting Top Wine Industry Talent in a Competitive Job Market


As the economy continues to thrive and the unemployment rates decline, it’s become increasingly difficult for employers to attract quality candidates.

To succeed in this highly competitive market for talent, employers must utilize the most effective platforms for their hiring needs.

According to ForceBrand’s Wine & Spirits Talent Market Report, “…the [wine] industry is learning to be more progressive in an effort to help capture younger talent,” with perks that honor work-life balance. The report adds that wine companies are also “coming up with innovative solutions” to retain its workforce.

Savvy job seekers, whether already employed or not, are even more selective in which job sites they chose to search. Niche industry-specific sites continue to be a top channel for job seekers, as they are more trusted and specialized platforms, re-enforcing an employer’s credibility and influence within their industry.
