Hiring trends in the US in 2016

While hiring activity across the United States is not yet back to pre-recession levels, job opportunities and salaries are increasing - albeit at a reduced pace compared to previous recoveries. The country's steady growth continued in 2016 and companies took a measured approach to recruitment as they continued to operate in 'recuperation' mode.

During the year we saw salaries increasing, on average, between 2-4%, with large incremements for exceptional candidates in niche roles. We expect these trends to continue in 2016, with companies focusing on job creation as well as replacement hiring, in turn presenting improved opportunities for candidates. Organizations are also likely to accelerate the recruitment process as they compete for top tier talent.

Overall, the outlook for recruitment in the USA is fairly positive, although we expect the pattern of steady growth to continue for a number of years before job creation and salary inflation really increase again.
