ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Jan 22, 2013) - Kavaliro, an award-winning national staffing services agency, today released its 2013 Employee Outlook and Salary Guide featuring research findings on employee retention trends, hot careers and starting salaries for the fastest-growing industries of the upcoming year. Research findings will give business owners the insights needed to attract the best employees at the fairest rates. Each year Kavaliro pinpoints the top trends in the employment industry. This year the top three trends are:
1. Job seekers love their mobile devices
People looking for jobs are using their iPads and iPhones more than ever. A majority of visitors to the Kavaliro site use Apple iPhones, followed by iPads. Getting to the job first allows applicants a better shot at having their resume seen by hiring managers.
2. Robotic and .NET skills are in high demand
During the hiring process, employers generally look for job seekers with good communication and technical skills. .NET qualifications topped the list in 2011, but this past year we found another highly desirable skill as well. In the IT, engineering, healthcare and medical device repair industries, recruiters are hunting for candidates with robotics skills. Robotics engineer is our hot job in this edition of our handbook.
3. The hottest jobs command high salaries
According to the CareerBuilder Talent Compensation Report, a survey of 1,000 .NET developers and employers across the country revealed an average annual salary of $85,863, with top salaries reaching well into the six figures. Yet despite the lofty compensation on the table, employers continue to report difficulties in hiring and retaining top .NET Developer talent in the midst of unprecedented demand for these services. Much of that demand is driven by the explosion of web-based services and applications, as more and more business is conducted via computer systems.
"The trends we have uncovered define the current job market and allow business owners to form their employment plan based on future projections," said Mark Moore, president of Kavaliro. "In turn, those business owners who hire based on these trends will attract the best employees at the fairest rates."
To garner the best employees, companies must stay abreast with current compensation levels and desired skills for the upcoming year. Kavaliro uses its professional and executive recruiting experience in addition to annual data from the Occupational Handbook and the U.S. Department of Labor to draft this guide, which is available as a free download on its website (www.kavaliro.com), for business professionals to keep up with today's labor outlook, changing workplace issues, recruiting and technology strategies.
Kavaliro's annual Employee Outlook and Salary Guide coupled with continued integrated staffing solutions serve as valuable tools to determine hiring needs and to reduce a company's recruiting costs. As one of the most agile companies in its industry, Kavaliro believes that its level of commitment and dedication to its clients, staff and community is unsurpassable.
