The war for talent is quite literally the fiercest it’s been for 2 decades.
In 2017 it took 27 working days on average to fill an open position. That’s close to 6 weeks. Can you afford to have a position open for that long? Once you include onboarding and minimal training you’ve easily lost 3 months of productivity. And that’s just one position.
In June 2018 the Washington Post wrote that for the first time on record the number of job openings in the US exceeds the number of unemployed Americans. You read that right. There are more job openings available currently than the number of people not working. Which means the war for talent is literally at an all time high.
In April 2018 there were 6.7 million open job positions in the US. Employers had added jobs for a record 92 months in a row. And the trend does not appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
