On average, how long does it take a private organization with 2,000 to 2,500 employees to fill vacancies? As a government agency that is bound to a civil-service process, we constantly hear complaints from our managers that it takes too long to fill a position. We are also told that we need to be more like the private sector. We are all for innovative procedures and systems to help us hire qualified individuals within a shorter period of time. However, it is hard for us to believe that hiring in the private sector is as easy and quick as many of our managers would like to think.
