By now it is apparent that the candidate-driven market is a competitive environment for finding talent. Organizations of all sizes and industries are scrambling to find top performing individuals for open positions, particularly in niche skill sets and hard-to-fill roles.
Our team set out to discover what organizations of all shapes and sizes are doing to find this talent. Is everyone really just using LinkedIn? Do large companies still have trouble finding talent with a large recruiting team? Are most hiring managers outsourcing roles to traditional executive search or recruiting firms?
For the last six months, our team has extensively surveyed organizations across the U.S. and Canada to uncover these trends. By understanding what hiring teams are doing to find talent – and where their strategy is lacking – we can gain an understanding of the recruiting landscape moving forward, tactics to try, and gaps in processes that need to be addressed and remedied.
We hope this collection of data provides the intelligence your team needs to make any necessary improvements to your company’s recruiting, hiring, and sourcing practices in order to keep up with industry trends.
