2013Employees are looking to the New Year with guarded optimism. Though the economy is gradually growing and businesses are predicted to hire more employees than last year, the slow recovery and soft global market would indicate that most employers will be playing it safe.

A recent survey showed over 60% of companies are better off financially than last year and 26% plan to hire permanent full time employees this year, up 3% from 2012.

When employers are apprehensive about making key hiring commitments they often seek the assistance of recruiting and staffing firms to meet their demands.

Hiring Trends

Employers will be looking for the right skill. Over 19% of full time workers say they have been approached by other firms for employment opportunities. This demand will continue to grow this year as employers attempt to find answers to the skills gap situation.

Companies are realizing the necessity for hiring and keeping highly qualified employees and will be willing to pay more to keep them. Recent pools show 72% of businesses plan to compensate existing employees and raise starting salaries, up to 3%.
