One-half (52%) of organizations in the state and local government that were hiring full-time staff reported difficulty recruiting for specific open jobs, an increase from 34% in 2011. The top reasons given for recruiting difficulty were the candidates’ pay requirements not matching the hiring organization’s salary or hourly rates (53%), lack of the right skills among candidates (43%), and competition from other employers (35%). This report is one of eight industry-level SHRM survey findings that look at skill gaps, recruiting challenges and recruiting strategies for employers in the U.S.
