Evidently a Growing Field

I just stumbled upon this. Not sure what to make of it but it’s good to hear that HR is a growing field.

Overall HR employment is projected to grow by 17 percent between 2006 and 2016, estimating 1,015,000 jobs in 2016, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Plus, as the need for good HR specialists and executives increases, so does their annual compensation, according to a survey by Watson Wyatt, a global consulting firm, in association with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). In 2007, the highest percentage increases in average salary were given to HR professionals with strong skills in knowledge of compensation, benefits, international HR and diversity.

Well, good for us I say.

  1. I wonder how much of that 17% increase is going to end up being employees of PEOs and other outsourced HR services…

    In totally unrelated news, I find it hilarious that the Adroll ad that popped up when I visited your blog today was for John McCain.
