CHARTS FOR SMART HR PROS: This is Your Company's Recruiting Pipeline in a Good Economy...

Capitalist Note - Going to give you a couple of charts this week that you should absolutely share as a part of any HR deck you do for an operations review with the business leaders of your company.  We all need third party data to tell the story of what the company faces related to tightness in recruiting markets, turnover and more.

You tell your business leaders that the talent markets are tighter than they've ever been in 5 years.  Your business leaders think the recession isn't over and that's BS.  That might be right for your industry, but it's not correct overall, and you get candidates from outside your industry all the time.  Share the following chart (email subscribers click through for the chart) as part of your next ops review.

That's a crazy chart. We're getting ready to party like it's 1999, but instead of Prince and a purple jumpsuit, the party is our job openings and guess what?  

No one is coming.

Better get ready to go out and find the people you need.  With numbers like this, the efficiency of your job postings on all job boards will be at an all-time low.

Post and pray isn't going to cut it in this market - thanks for the great chart to help the C-level folks understand that you have to significantly up your recruiting game right now or you are losing ground compared to the competition.
