Like most aspects of the workplace, recruiting norms have changed. While unemployment rates remain high, many employers find themselves struggling to connect with the right candidates. Even as some are receiving a high number of applicants, they encounter new challenges, such as meeting the changing needs of qualified candidates who remain in high demand.
According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), job seekers in today’s employment market are primarily looking for safety, consistency, stability and longevity. Be sure to incorporate your attention to these needs into your recruiting efforts.
