State of the Industry: Employees in the Arts and Entertainment industry are often fueled by different motivators than staff in other fields. Production companies, music studios, theatres, and other entertainment firms are staffed by employees seeking creative challenges, public exposure, and an exciting working environment. Businesses specializing in the Arts and Entertainment field can always find “somebody” but are challenged to find people who fit with their distinct, innovative cultures and have the skill sets. Hiring based on a balance of skills and fit is crucial in Arts and Entertainment, where employees have significant face time with highly valued clients. After hiring new employees, employers are faced with the task of successfully acclimating new hires to their unique environment and consistently providing a stimulating atmosphere for employee engagement and retention.
