Survey Reveals Top Ten Hiring, Human Resources Trends for 2010

(January 7, 2010) - According to online jobs website's "2010 Job Forecast" - a survey of more than 2,700 hiring managers and human resources (HR) professionals nationwide across industries - employers are looking to the future to make up for lost ground caused by the recession.

The following are the Top 10 hiring and human resources trends for 2010 according to the survey that employers will use to preserve the health and growth of their businesses:

Replace Under-Performing Employees: Taking advantage of the large number of talented jobseekers currently looking for work, more than one-in-three (37 percent) employers plan to replace under-performing employees in 2010.

Use Social Media: Almost four-in-ten employers (37 percent) plan to emphasize social media in 2010, and one-in-five will add social media responsibilities to current employees.

Rehire Laid-off Workers: Among companies with lay-offs in 2009, almost one-third (32 percent) of those employers plan to bring back workers in 2010.

Provide Flexible Work Arrangements: More than one-in-three (35 percent) employers plan to provide more flexible work arrangements in 2010, including: alternate schedules (73 percent); telecommuting (41 percent); and compressed workweeks (32 percent).

Trim Perks and Benefits: Perks and benefits will be cut by 37 percent of employers in 2010, including: bonuses; medical coverage; and suspended 401k matching.

Rehire Retirees & Postpone Retirement: Over one-in-four employers (27 percent) will consider retaining workers approaching retirement in 2010, while nearly one-in-three (30 percent) have workers expressing interest in postponing retirement.

Hire Freelance & Contract Workers: Three-in-ten employers anticipate hiring freelancers or contractors in 2010.

Add Green Jobs: More than one-in-ten (11 percent) of employers plan to add "green jobs" in 2010 to improve conservation and sustainability.

Recruit Bilingual Workers: Nearly four-in-ten employers (39 percent) will hire bilingual candidates in 2010 and half will hire the bilingual candidate of two otherwise equally qualified candidates.

Reduce Business Travel: Over one-in-four employers (43 percent) plan to have less business travel in 2010 than in 2009.

No matter what trends businesses follow, hiring managers and human resources professionals know that most potential employers perform background checks on prospective employees. According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), 80 percent of U.S. companies use background checks as part of a pre-employment background screening program. Background checks help ensure the safety and security of workers, their workplace, and the general public. - a nationally recognized provider of background checks ranked in HRO Today's Top Employment Screening Providers - offers employers a variety of background screening services, drug testing, applicant tracking systems, business tax credits and incentives consulting, and other human resources solutions. For more information about background checks, visit, email, or call 800-300-1821.
