Recruitment trends and predictions for this upcoming year have already been made, and here at Sloane Staffing, a staffing firm in Delray Beach, we are taking note. It has been predicted that the following will be common resources for staffing in the year 2019:
Mobile Recruitment: More and more candidates are using their phones and tablets to look for and apply for jobs. According to Glassdoor, 89% of candidates use mobile platforms to search for jobs. Companies should work to make it easier for candidates to apply directly from their phones if they want to see an increase in their job applicants and submissions.
More Flexible Working Conditions: Contract work and temporary positions are becoming more and more popular among candidates. Even more attractive to potential new employees is the opportunity to work remotely, or work from home. Allowing candidates to work remote even just one day a week will greatly increase your submissions.
Leveraging A Staffing Agency: Staffing agencies have valuable industry expertise that help companies who struggle with hiring. Working with recruiters also reduces friction among hiring managers. For example, positions in fields like IT, engineering and software development have specific requirements that can be hard to understand for talent acquisition generalists who lack direct industry experience. Plus, staffing agencies close relationships that they keep with top candidates in the market can lead to a faster hiring process.
