The 2022 Market Trends Report will also highlight the extreme challenges facing Recruiters now and in recent months:
146% rise in vacancies being created and advertised
Over 1.2 million vacancies at any one time, far outstripping available job seekers
Only 25% of candidates are seeking employment due to unemployment, the remaining 75% are job movers.
This is compounding the problem, by causing higher attrition, which in turn is powering the number of vacancies.
It is a candidate’s market.
All of these measures can provide useful insight, but "you don’t fatten a pig by measuring it" as the saying goes.
If right now you are thinking "I’m so busy trying to find candidates I haven’t got time to read the rest of this article”, you probably should read the rest of this article!
Chances are you are working around the clock trying to find candidates, and you are under pressure to take action. The problem comes when being seen to be taking action – of any kind as long as it is perceived to be trying to get candidates through the door – is more important than the right action. Rushing into exciting solutions without knowing what needs to be achieved can be counter-productive. You could be throwing good money after bad.
An audit of your recruitment lifecycle will help identify weakness and opportunities for improvement. For example, where is the value in more advertising, if the proposition or process turns off candidates? Or an EDI focus without the tools and actions to support it?
