Forty-one percent of respondents to NACE’s 2012 Recruiting Benchmarks Survey reported having a rotational program for their new hires, compared with 44 percent who reported such programs in the 2011 survey.
The existence of rotational programs can be clearly associated with larger companies. Firms with fewer than 1,000 employees are very unlikely to have a rotational program. In fact, it isn’t until the size of the firm exceeds 20,000 employees that a majority of the respondents reported having rotations. (See Figure 1.)
Rotational programs are very much aligned with firms in the manufacturing sector and relatively uncommon among service sector firms and government agencies. (See Figure 2.)
Some of the other survey highlights include:
NACE’s 2012 Recruiting Benchmarks Survey was conducted June 15 through August 15, 2012; 242 employer-member organizations took part. Read the executive summary here.
