Qualigence president, Stephen Lowisz, experiencing companies evaluating their current staff and re-evaluating needed skill sets

Some companies are finding that they do need to replace some of their current staff, you just don’t hear about it because that is something companies want to keep under wraps.

Stephen A. Lowisz believes recruiting is a leading indicator of market conditions. Lowisz, president and chief executive officer of Qualigence, Inc., sees the market on the upswing.

Founded in 1999, Qualigence is a recruitment research and professional search firm specializing in identifying and attracting passive candidates for its clients. As a result, Qualigence has become known for the accurate and extensive research results it delivers as well as its partnership-style of doing business for an hourly rate, rather than commission based. Qualigence has also grown to become the largest recruitment research firm in the U.S.

Lowisz is seeing companies ramping up, particularly for exempt positions in the human resource, training and development, marketing and technology industries. Lowisz is also experiencing companies evaluating their current staff.

“Organizations are wondering if they have the right people to begin with,” said Lowisz. “Some companies are finding that they do need to replace some of their current staff, you just don’t hear about it because that is something companies want to keep under wraps.”

Lowisz also points out that companies that previously laid off a percentage of their staff are now at a stage where they are hiring. However, those companies have re-evaluated their needs and found that although they are hiring, they are looking for people to meet a different skill set than what they previously required.

Lowisz shared his insight during an interview with HRmarketer.com’s president, Kevin Grossman. The interview can be heard on HRmarketer’s HR Market Share podcast by visiting HRmarketer’s blog. Subscribe to the podcast in iTunes or visit Hipcast.
