Recruiters and executive search firms are looking ahead into what will shape the labor market and staffing industry in the new year.  The U.S. economy is still experiencing a high unemployment rate, though it seems the number of layoffs has subsided.  The Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke warned, “While we still expect that economic activity and labor market conditions will improve gradually over time, the pace and progress is likely to be frustratingly slow”.

In these economic conditions the trend for employers having a difficult time finding the right candidate for their empty positions will continue, due to changes in the labor market and finding the right skill set.  While poor hiring decisions can cost a company millions of dollars, hiring the right senior level candidate has proven to be essential for success.  It is crucial to find a reliable executive search firm to ensure your company thrives.
