Now, in the second part of this series, we explore what the landscape is today and what RPO means for buyers, providers and results in 2014.

By Allison Reilly Tue, Dec 17,2013 @ AM

Under the new health care law, employers with more than 50 employees are required to provide health insurance, or face fines. The new law and its rules have started a lot of debate on how these changes will impact businesses and their hiring decisions.

An October 2013 survey of 500 businesses found that 78% of them said Obamacare will have no impact on their hiring plans. So, what's really going on with Obamacare and hiring and recruiting?

HR Industry Changes & Analysis from 2008 to 2013

By Allison Reilly Tue, Dec 03,2013 @ AM

Software reviewer Software Advice reviewed the data of HR-related companies to assess how the industry has changed from 2008 to 2013. This data included revenue, number of employees, and location taken from the Inc. 5000 list from 2008 and Inc. 5000 list from 2013, where the data was aggregated and compared. It also needs to be noted that the data collected by Inc. is from the previous year, so the information is really from 2007 and 2012, respectively. Below are the highlights from their analysis. Software Advice does have a copy of the full report, while you can view the charts and stats in the Slideshare presentation at the end of this blog post. The overall findings show that the HR industry grew, increasing revenue and its number of employees.
