Employers Find That Time-to-Fill Job Rates Are Growing, Hit 13 Year High

Friday, August 15, 2014

From TLNT: The time to fill open positions has reached a national average of just about 25 days, the lengthiest job vacancy period in the 13 years covered by the DICE-time to fill by industry DFH Vacancy Duration Measure. The monthly report on time to fill and recruiting efforts says that on average it took 24.9 working days (Monday-Saturday) in June to post, source, and hire a new employee. That's more than nine days longer than it took at the height of the recession in July 2009. Then, the average was 15.3 working days.
