The 2013 AppleOne Standards for Compensation and Leadership Excellence report (also known as The SCALE) is now available. The SCALE was compiled from extensive research conducted with our branch locations, interviews with HR and labor experts, Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and O*NET data, and ongoing client surveys. Our 2013 version of The SCALE provides you with the most current information on compensation and workforce trends.
The SCALE also analyzes the Talent Deficit and identifies the factors that are preventing companies from competing and growing as quickly as they could. The SCALE explores the root causes and offers real solutions that you can implement immediately to outperform your competitors.
For example, here are some highlights that bring the Talent Deficit into sharper focus:
- 67% of employers report that it is very difficult to find top-level talent
- 60% of the workforce will be retiring over the next 10 years and will leave a skills gap
- Recruiting intensity is still down 17% from the pre-recession peaks
- 24% of CEOs can not achieve growth forecasts because they do not have the right talent
We have also created a complementary website that will let you gain the most up-to-date financial information and workforce guidance, personalized salary information and expanded job descriptions. To access the website, you will need a special code that is printed on the back of your copy of The SCALE.
Quantities of The Scale are limited, and you will want to be one of the first to receive a copy.
