A Survey by Achieve/SHRM of Hiring Practices across Nine Industries

Wednesday, October 3, 2012Printer-friendly version

Achieve, in partnership with Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), conducted a national survey of almost 4,700 human resource (HR) professionals from across nine industries to better understand how the skills mismatch affects companies’ hiring practices — and how companies’ hiring practices affect the skills mismatch. The report shows that organizations are demanding more education and technical training than before, a trend expected to continue in the future.
