Three Employment and Staffing Trends for 2011

1. Temporary employment will continue to grow.  In 2010 temporary employment was a rising trend, and it doesn’t show any signs of stopping.

2. Information technology, engineering, and accounting and finance will be among the types of companies that expect to increase full-time, permanent workers in 2011, along with sales, customer service, technology, administrative, business development, marketing, and research and development.  This is according to labor market data from a recent survey performed by economic consulting firm IHS Global Insight.

3. More movement among workers: as workers become more optimistic about their job prospects in the New Year, they feel freer to explore new opportunities rather than hunkering down in their current jobs.  Fifteen percent of full-time workers are actively seeking new jobs.  Sixty-seven percent reported that they would like to change jobs in 2011 for the right opportunity.  These numbers are according to a survey by CareerBuilder, of 6,300 workers and employers nationwide, across industries and company sizes.

What other employment and staffing trends do you predict for 2011?
