With the recruitment landscape changing rapidly, one needs to be on top of the latest trends to understand what to expect from employers and recruiters alike. We put together a few of them;

  • Branding Reigns Supreme; if you check out the best recruitment platforms, you will find out that the top brands such as Google, Apple and others are the top priority for most people. The bigger the brand, the more people want to work for it.
  • Automation is Rising; in the recruitment arena, the rise of the use of big data to recruit is a rising trend that no one can afford to ignore. Many firms are using automation to find the right candidates.
  • Employee Referrals are Lagging Behind; although some of the best recruitments take place following referrals, this sector is lagging behind the use of staffing agencies and job boards by more than half the amount of candidates recruited.
  • The Rise of Diversity Hiring; in the current workplace, there is the increase in the need to hire people from different walks of life to make the workplace a dynamic place made up of all religions, all races and all levels of ability.

These and other trends such as the growing focus on talent and new methods of acquiring talent have changed the recruitment landscape greatly. For most people, the need to focus on the talent and finding the best talent on recruitment sites such as Reflik ever grows more intensive.
