  • Thanks for sharing this valuable SlideShare Corporate Staffing & Recruiting Trends and Predictions Presentation. I’ve personally experienced Corporate HR/Recruiting downsizing/elimination following the failure of WaMu in Seattle, Wa. As mentioned in this presentation, I’ve focused my time in Pipeline Building and Branding. I look forward to the increase in new jobs after 2-4 more quarters, as predicted in this 2009-2010 Trends & Predictions Update!

    Happy Networking! - Terry

  8. 8. Welcome: Introductions   Who is in the audience?   Let us learn a bit more about you…   We’ll run a few polls to get some context 7
  9. 9. Trends: Short Term   US: Unemployment hit 9.8% in August – will probably rise to 10-10.5% in early 2010.   Growing number of economists are fearing a “double dip” recession.   “Real unemployment” more like 15-16%. 8
  10. 10. Trends: Short Term   Unemployment growth rate is slowing, but it will take 2-4 more quarters for visible increase in new jobs.   Before that, as consumer confidence grows, expect to see turnover pick up. 9
  11. 11. Trends: Short Term   Continued reduction in corporate recruiting teams.   HR Generalists are being asked to handle more recruitment specific work.   More reliance on recruiting team members who are still there to focus on project management work –  Continuing to use more external resource for hard to fill roles –  Continued to maximize ERP for less hard to fill roles 10
  12. 12. Trends: Short Term   Corporate recruiting departments will morph into hybrid of leveraging internal/external resources more efficiently.   We do not see a return to the “status quo” at all. –  Recruiters who were once full time employees may find themselves contractors for their career. –  Recruiters may find themselves working inside of third party RPO firms or other resources. –  Recruiters may find themselves…(gasp)… going into an HR role! 11
  13. 13. Trends: Short Term-What about RPO?   RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing) is a great concept that burst onto the scene several years ago. It provides scalability that saves companies money in good times and bad, and it also amps up hiring quality by improving and standardizing processes.   This is especially good when corporate recruiting functions have been decimated.   Recruiters and Recruiting leaders are fearful about RPO because it seems as if it will take their jobs away.   Recruiting teams must embrace more partnering with external resources in the new age of recruiting, because with few exceptions, we do not see a return to the status quo. 12
  14. 14. Prediction: Short Term Opportunities   Progressive recruiters are taking advantage of this downturn by refocusing on: –  Pipeline Building and Branding –  Training /retraining staff and managers –  Directing Research to assist Sales and Marketing –  Exploring increasing use of RPO –  Assisting other HR functions –  Initiate true Workforce Planning 13
  15. 15. Trend: The “War for Talent” is Not Over   According to the US Department of Labor, we have been moving to an ‘ultra-high-tech’ economy for some time, and the stats are sobering   The “War” is over growing skills shortages   At present, 62% of US jobs are high pay/ high skill, requiring 97 million people, of which we have 45 million qualified people 14
  16. 16. Trend: The “War for Talent” is Not Over   By 2020, 74% of US jobs will be high pay/ high skill, needing 123 million people, of which we will only have 50 million qualified   Conversely, at present, we need 61 million low pay/low skill workers for jobs now, but have 100 million candidates   By 2020, we’ll only need 44 million low pay/ low skill workers, but we’ll have 150 million Americans vying for those jobs 15
  17. 17. More Longer Term Opportunities   The strategic recruiter will work to position themselves accordingly, by industry and function   According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the brightest areas for job growth are: –  Industries: Healthcare, High Tech (especially medical, biotechnology, and cutting-edge R&D), Environmental, Energy, Global Mobility –  Function: Engineers (network, systems, datacom), programmers, health aide workers, doctors/nurses 16
  18. 18. Specific Steps: Opportunities for Now   Working with RPO, other alternative models   Versatility in Deployment   Broadening HR/Generalist Background   Staying current with rapidly evolving technology/tools 17
  19. 19. Specific Steps: Opportunities for Now   Making social networking really net hires, not just a “great idea”.   Aligning more closely with HR Generalists and adding value to the coming volatility in turnover.   Helping HR Generalists understand and partner with recruiting activities.   Focus on the measurement of the work you do now as opposed to what sounds good in the future. 18
