SHRM Leading Indicators of National Employment Report - May 2013

In May, the hiring rate will rise in the service and
manufacturing sectors compared with a year ago,
according to the Society for Human Resource
Management’s (SHRM) Leading Indicators of
National Employment (LINE) survey for May 2013.

Employers will continue to grow payrolls in May.
A net of 42.9 percent of manufacturers and a net of
37.1 percent of service-sector companies will add jobs
in May.

Recruiting difficulty was mixed in April. Difficulty
in recruiting candidates for key jobs decreased
in manufacturing and increased in services compared
with a year ago.

Weak wage growth continued in April. The rate
of increase in new-hire compensation was basically
unchanged in manufacturing and services compared
with a year ago.

The LINE Employment Report examines four
key areas: employers’ hiring expectations, new-hire
compensation, difficulty in recruiting top-level talent
and job vacancies. It is based on a monthly survey of
private-sector human resource professionals at more
than 500 manufacturing and 500 service-sector
companies. Together, these two sectors employ more
than 90 percent of the nation’s private-sector workers.
