In July, the hiring rate will rise slightly in the service sector and drop in the manufacturing sector, and recruiting difficulty remains a problem for many HR professionals, according to the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) Leading Indicators of National Employment (LINE) survey for July 2015.
Hiring rates will vary in July compared with a year ago.
A net of more than half of service-sector companies (50.5 percent) and more than two out of five manufacturers (45.9 percent) will add jobs in July.
In June, recruiting difficulty rose yet again.
For the 16th straight month, difficulty in recruiting candidates for key jobs rose in both sectors compared with the previous year.
New-hire pay rates showed improvement in June.
The index for new-hire compensation rose in both sectors in June compared with a year ago.
The LINE Report examines four key areas: employers’ hiring expectations, new-hire compensation, difficulty in recruiting top level talent and job vacancies. It is based on a monthly survey of private-sector human resource professionals at more than 500 manufacturing and 500 service-sector companies. Together, these two sectors employ more than 90 percent of the nation’s private-sector workers.
