The global talent shortage, legacy technology and poor hiring team collaboration means that candidate attraction is becoming an issue for recruitment teams everywhere. What is your organisation doing to improve?
We all know the importance of having a healthy talent pipeline; it’s how organisation’s ensure that their time to fill remains low, and keeps businesses’s cogs turning even after an unexpected employee departure. It’s therefore shocking to hear that a whopping 54% of recruiters don’t have visibility of the candidates in their pipeline.
The additional time and resources being used to conduct fresh searches rather than delving into candidate pipelines seems counterproductive, so why is this happening? One reason is that outdated technology is still pervasive; hunting for information wastes an average of 28 hours per week, so it’s easy to see why recruiters may feel it is easier to start afresh. What’s more, for a typical Fortune 1000 company, just a 10% increase in data accessibility will result in more than $65 million additional net income.
Recruiters themselves rate a lack of time as a reason why they’re failing to be proactive in attracting candidates, but in a technology-rich world this shouldn’t be the case. Investing in robust systems with a focus on productivity and enhanced collaboration would free up the entire hiring team to spend more time on high-value tasks such as candidate attraction. Our infographic below highlights exactly why the time for such investment is now.
