  • There has been a shift in control from the employer to those seeking employment, based on findings from 83% of recruiters. This means that top candidates likely have multiple options of where to work and recruiters will now have to change their approach to “selling candidates.”
  • The top firms are now recognizing that the mobile platform should be involved in all aspects of recruiting. For instance, one should be able to apply to a position via his mobile phone, view videos in regards to job descriptions, and this avenue should be the primary mode of communication with potential candidates.
  • There is beginning to be a shift where compelling offers must be extended to people for them to accept offers. For instance, sign on bonuses and a candidate’s job acceptance criteria becomes essential. Recruiters will need to update their approach and skills of creating appealing offers.
  • A big surprise will be a shortage of top recruiters. Expect bidding wars as top companies face this revelation.
  • Turnover rates at companies continue to increase, which also equates to increased rates of recruiting. However, make note that a firm’s high rate of turnover also affects a recruiters ability to recruit new employees. Companies will need to assess new employees for the likelihood of an early departure from the company.
  • While some very talented people present weak resumes, you will be able to discover their work on line via avenues like the internet and social media. This is a plus because a person’s work is always more representative of their capabilities than a resume.
