Last year we discovered recruiters prefer talent acquisition to most any other name. We learned that recruiting quality prospects was harder in 2014, even if some of the corporate recruiters we surveyed thought otherwise.
And looking back on the results of last year’s State of Recruiting Survey, it seems some recruiters were whistling past the graveyard when it came to predicting the difficulty in recruiting this year.
Now we’re conducting this year’s recruiting survey, and we want you to take part. In addition to corporate recruiting, we’re collecting information specific to the search and staffing sectors. Among the questions we ask are some the specific challenges presented by your clients. Your opinion of hiring managers is among them.
We also ask about your use of metrics, analytics and KPIs to measure productivity and performance. One especially useful question deals with the most effective way of reaching candidates, i.e. phone, texting, email, etc.
The more responses we get from agency recruiters, the more useful the results. So please, spend the 6 or 7 minutes it will take and complete the survey. And add your comments to fill in any blanks. Those who participate will get early copies of the results.
