In our recent Perfect Fit Survey, Aerotek found that the majority of hiring managers are happy with their
last hire and many remain optimistic about finding the right candidate. However, results published in the
January 2013 issue of The Quarterly Journal of Economics showed the average time to fill a position rose to
23 days in December 2012 compared to a low of 15.4 days in July 2009. The rhetoric of a historic skills gap
has painted a negative picture of job seekers but is there more to the story?
As companies are forced to do more with less, have new hire expectations changed? Has this mounting pressure
put developing current employees on the back burner? Our survey seeks to find out the importance of engaging,
developing and investing in your current qualified workforce.
