SHRM'S Line Report July 2011

Research

SHRM’s Leading Indicators of National Employment (LINE) report tracks trends in the labor market on a monthly basis, including hiring projections released one month ahead of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Employment Situation report.  Exclusive metrics also include new-hire compensation trends and recruiting difficulty, as well as job vacancies in exempt and nonexempt employment.

Need data on what’s really happening in the job market? The SHRM LINE Employment Report covers the service and manufacturing sectors on key areas for recruiting each month:

  • SHRM’s Leading Indicators of National Employment (LINE), the only national employment indicator that includes hiring expectations for the month ahead, is released one month earlier than the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Employment Situation Report covering the same period
  • Month to month data on new-hire compensation changes
  • The only published measure of recruiting difficulty of highly qualified candidates for the most critical positions
