More organizations hiring to replace workers than in 2010

Nov 22, 2011 - 01:40 PM
Almost three-quarters of organizations are hiring full-time permanent staff and more than half of those (58 percent) are mainly hiring to replace employees lost to layoffs or attrition - a substantial increase compared to 47 percent during 2010, according to the latest survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management.

However, the survey also shows that fewer organizations (30 percent) are hiring for completely new positions than during 2010 (47 percent). More than half of respondents (57 percent) said they required some new skills for new positions and 15 percent said they required a completely new and different skills set.

The Ongoing Impact of the Recession: Overall Financial Health and Hiring Poll also showed little change from 2010 in how organizations described their overall financial health. Two-thirds of organizations reported no change or being in a mild to significant recovery compared to 12 months ago.
