Sep 25, 2013

Two-thirds (65%) of organizations in the health industry that were hiring full-time staff reported difficulty recruiting for specific open jobs, an increase from 50% in 2011. The top three reasons given for recruiting difficulty were competition from other employers (39%), the candidates’ pay requirements not matching the hiring organization’s salary or hourly rates (38%), and lack of the right skills among candidates (36%). This report is one of eight industry-level SHR​M survey findings that look at skill gaps, recruiting challenges and recruiting strategies for employers in the U.S.
