Three-quarters (74%) of organizations in the construction, mining, oil and gas industry that were hiring full-time staff reported difficulty recruiting for specific open jobs, an increase from 51% in 2011. The top three reasons given for recruiting difficulty were lack of the right skills among candidates (52%), lack of the right work experience (44%), and competition from other employers (40%). This report is one of eight industry-level SHRM survey findings that look at skill gaps, recruiting challenges and recruiting strategies for employers in the U.S.

  • 1. SHRM Survey Findings: The Ongoing Impact of the Recession—Construction, Mining, Oil and Gas Industry September 25, 2013
  • 2. • These are the construction, oil, mining and gas industry survey findings about the ongoing impact of the U.S. and global recession, which began in 2007. This is the third year that SHRM has conducted this study and data are reported for 2010 and 2011 where possible. The results are reported in the following sections: » Skill gaps. » Recruiting challenges. » Recruiting strategies. • Industry-specific results will be reported separately for each of the following industries: » Federal government. » Finance. » Health. » High-tech. » Manufacturing. » Professional services. » State and local government. • Overall and California results can be found on our website at www.shrm.org/surveys.

  • 3. The Ongoing Impact of the Recession—Construction, Mining, Oil and Gas Industry ©SHRM 2013 3 Skill Gaps
  • 4. • What basic skills/knowledge gaps do job applicants typically have? The most common basic skills/knowledge gaps are writing in English (55%), mathematics (40%), reading comprehension (35%) and English language (spoken) (33%). • What applied skill gaps do job applicants typically have? The top five applied skill gaps are critical thinking/problem solving (48%), leadership (42%), professionalism/work ethic (41%), written communications (38%), and oral communications (34%). • What types of jobs are the most difficult to fill? The top five most difficult positions to fill are highly skilled positions: engineers (87%), high-skilled technical (e.g., technicians and programmers) (87%), managers and executives (85%), skilled trades (e.g., electricians, carpenters) (79%), and sales representatives (74%).

  • 9. The Ongoing Impact of the Recession—Construction, Mining, Oil and Gas Industry ©SHRM 2013 9 Recruiting Challenges
  • 10. • Is it difficult to recruit for positions requiring new and different skill sets? About two-thirds (67%) of organizations reported it was somewhat or very difficult to recruit for completely new positions or positions with new duties added that required new and different skill sets. This is an increase from 58% in 2011 and 47% in 2010. • Is recruiting for specific jobs difficult in the current labor market? Nearly three-quarters (74%) of organizations currently hiring full-time staff indicated that they are having a difficult time recruiting for specific job openings, an increase from 51% in 2011. • Why are organizations experiencing difficulty hiring qualified candidates? About one-half (52%) of organizations indicated that candidates do not have the right skills for the job, and 44% said candidates do not have the right work experience. Two in five organizations (40%) cited competition from other employers, and one-quarter (26%) reported that a low number of applicants were creating difficulty in hiring. • Are organizations facing global competition for applicants for hard-to-fill jobs? Twenty-two percent of organizations believe they are facing global competition for qualified applicants for jobs they are having difficulty filling, which has decreased from 34% in 2011.
