Some trends come and go. Like party food from the 1970s. Duck Mousse Gelee (meat and gelatin, really?) luckily passed. Molded meats in this fashion aren’t likely to come back any time soon. Whew.
Other trends, such as trends in recruiting stick around and become the norm. From working with many staffing companies we know some of the top trends are the way in which the industry is headed and they’re not likely to pass like a Jell-O mold of meat.
This week, the 2015 edition of LinkedIn’s Global Recruiting Trends Report was released. Here are some of the takeaways:
- Recruiting leaders should expect and prepare for more competitive hiring and an increased spending budget in 2015. Can your staffing company stand up to the competition?
- Social networks are gaining steam the fastest as a recruiting channel but company career sites are still the top channel for promoting talent brand. Does your staffing company’s website stand up to the competition and impress candidates?
- Job boards and social professional networks are the new norm, whereas four years ago the top source for finding great people was referrals from your network. How is your job board and social game looking?
- Only 61% of global companies have a strategy for passive candidate recruiting and this is a real bummer since 75% of candidates are passive. Are you missing out on a large talent pool?
