A Shocking Talent Vacuum

Recruiters in finance and accounting detail their hardships in finding appropriate hires. Robert Half found that slightly over half of the field of 5,000 firms they interviewed were taking up to two months to staff positions.  This is where next acropolis has to excel: at the meeting point of talent and industrial demand.   This comes amidst the estimate that in 2010, 1/2 the U.S. accounting workforce will be staffed by Generation Y, based on the numbers of individuals retiring. This will create a massive need for recruitment, and for recruitment to be accurate on talent and ‘the fit.’
