HR Technology Trends: Expect Consolidation
Consolidation in the HR technology market has increased over the past year, and that trend is going to continue, according to a panel of industry analysts at the HR Technology Conference & Exposition in Chicago.  Conference Co-Chairman Bill Kutik, right, questions the analysts panel, from left to right, Jim Holincheck, Lisa Rowan, Paul Hamerman, and Naomi Lee Bloom. One reason for the trend is the growing popularity of talent management suites, said Jim Holincheck, vice president of research at Gartner. "One of the ways to provide an integrated talent management suite is through acquisition," he said, adding that when looking at potential vendors, organizations may want to check to see whether they are "acquirers" or "acquirees."

Human Resources (HR)... Major Profit Producers?
If you are an HR Professional and you are not tracking your department's specific profit contribution, you should be.  HR heads have been reporting this incredibly important fact for decades. One reporting HR VP was rated number one nationally two years in a row for "best practices". He knew exactly how many millions of dollars his department put on the corporate bottom line from the day he started until he retired. The President and the other key executives where equally aware of the dollarized bottom line contribution consistently generated by his HR department. In Business Week, Jack and Suzy Welch took on the issue of what HR must do to leave the line-item overhead category on most business balance sheets. Any HR professional who has experienced cuts in HR budgets, reductions in staff and outright elimination of HR departments will understand the importance of this move. Every HR professional should read the article, or stop pretending to want a strategic role in the company. (WebProNews)

Deep Release:
Monster Employment Index Edges Down Slightly in September
Strong Rise in Opportunities for Workers in Mining and Transportation Industries
Suggests Continued Expansion in Energy and Distribution/Logistics Sectors

September 2006 Index Highlights:
Index dips one point to 172 in September, yet remains elevated, demonstrating continued strength in overall online recruitment activity heading into the fourth quarter
Index's year-over-year growth remains strong at 32 points, or 23 percent

Arts, design, entertainment, sports and media occupations continue to show strong year-over-year growth driven by heightened demand for creative professionals in PR, marketing and advertising
The Monster Employment Index dipped slightly in September, edging down one point to a level of 172, as weaker demand for workers in the financial services and utilities sectors offset heightened recruitment efforts in other industries such as mining; and transportation and warehousing. Overall, the Index remained just one point shy of its historical high point established in August, demonstrating continued strength in U.S. online recruitment activity heading into the fourth quarter.

Just seven of 20 industries and eight of 23 occupations tracked registered declines of varying degrees in September, but these were enough to cause a minor dip in the Index, which has maintained a mostly upward growth trend through the first three quarters of 2006 and is now showing year-over-year growth of 32 points, or 23 percent. Meanwhile, seven of the nine U.S. Census regions tracked registered increased online job availability, with the East South Central region showing the strongest monthly rate of growth of four points. Twenty-eight states and the District of Columbia also saw greater levels of online job demand during the month.

"The September findings of the Monster Employment Index suggest a more moderate pace of growth in U.S. online recruitment activity compared to earlier this year. Nevertheless, overall online demand for workers remains quite strong, and the national unemployment rate, currently at 4.7%, has remained below the five-percent mark for nine consecutive months - a further indication of underlying strength in the U.S. labor market," said Steve Pogorzelski, Group President, International at Monster Worldwide. "In fact, there are growing signs that prolonged talent supply constraints are finally starting to drive wages and salaries higher, as shortages of highly qualified employees force employers to increase the compensation packages they offer new hires."

Demand for Workers in Finance and Insurance Declines; While Online Job Availability in Mining; Transportation and Warehousing Surges

During September, ten of the 20 industry categories tracked by the Index showed greater online demand for workers, led by mining, which jumped 16 points, and transportation and warehousing, which surged for the second consecutive month, adding 13 points. The strong recruiting activity in these two sectors over the past two months suggests continued expansion efforts among energy and distribution/logistics companies.

Meanwhile, several industry sectors registered declines of varying degrees, led by sharply lower demand for workers in management of companies (down eight points); finance and insurance (down six points); and utilities (down five points). Online job availability in the real estate and rental and leasing industry also fell, falling six points to its lowest level since February, and mirroring the slide in new and existing home sales over the past several months.

Demand for Food Preparation and Serving; Arts, Design, Entertainment, Sports and Media Occupations Rises; While Opportunities for Military Specific; Personal Care and Service and Healthcare Occupations Ease

Twelve of the 23 occupational categories tracked by the Index showed increases of varying degrees in September, led by food preparation and serving related occupations, which rose seven points, reflecting sustained momentum in the restaurant industry and efforts by food and hospitality managers to replace departing seasonal workers. Online opportunities in arts, design, entertainment, sports and media occupations increased six points, driven by heightened demand for creative professionals in PR, marketing and advertising. The arts, design, entertainment, sports and media category has shown the highest year-over-year growth rate since December 2004 among all occupational categories.

Online opportunities for computer and mathematical (IT) occupations rose for the second consecutive month, adding five points amid high demand for qualified IT professionals going into the fourth quarter. With its high concentration of IT/computer companies, California in particular noted accelerated posting growth in this category.

In contrast, online job demand in a number of occupations dipped during September, led by military specific and personal care and service, which both shed six points. Other categories that showed slightly lower online job availability include farming, fishing and forestry; legal; healthcare practitioners and technical; healthcare support; and education, training and library.

Seven of Nine U.S. Census Bureau Regions See Stepped-up Online Recruitment Activity in September

Online recruitment activity increased in seven of nine U.S. Census Bureau regions in September, led by the East South Central region (up four points), which includes Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee. The West South Central region also saw greater online job availability, adding two points. The region has continued to show strong growth in online recruitment activity over the past 12 months due to ongoing reconstruction efforts since Hurricane Katrina hit the region in September 2005. Overall, 28 U.S. states and the District of Columbia saw online job availability climb by varying degrees in September.
