According to a new survey from Glassdoor, 76% of hiring decision makers say that attracting top talent is their #1 challenge.
Some of the reasons for this problem are:
- Old school recruiting strategies are no longer effective in getting the attention of informed candidates.
- Passive candidates are wary of networking sites like LinkedIn and have stopped responding to inquiries.
- Budget constraints make it more difficult to offer competitive salaries.
- Unemployment rates are the lowest we’ve seen in years.
This is good news for you and your recruiters, as companies need your unique ability to source and secure candidates now more than ever.
