Manufacturers Find It Easier to Recruit

U.S. manufacturers had an easier time recruiting workers to fill key positions in September, but the growth in compensation for new hires slowed, according to a survey by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the Rutgers University School of Management and Labor Relations.

The two organizations collaborate to issue the Leading Indicator of National Employment (LINE), a monthly report on trends in the national job market.

Overall employment in the manufacturing sector recovered from an August dip, according to the survey. The researchers say such a rise in job numbers in the sector runs counter to the usual pattern in which manufacturing typically adds fewer jobs in September than in August.

However, employment expectations declined to the lowest level since January. The LINE data suggests that the manufacturing job market was stronger in September than in August, but may soften slightly in October.
