More people than ever before, in the currently recruited workforce, are considering leaving their jobs for better employment opportunities. Recruitment process surveys and research results from various sources estimate that the number of people looking to switch their jobs is upwards of 60%. Under normal circumstances, people wait for their annual bonuses before starting a new job search. However, the slow economic activity has made it unnecessary for many to wait, as people are less optimistic about bonuses getting paid on time – or paid at all. As a result, the number of potentially available candidates, active and passive, is higher than normal in the current job market.
So how does this impact a recruiter’s job? What can hiring managers and employers do to adjust to these changes in the marketplace?
The increased volatility in the job market means that recruiters and hiring managers have to be better prepared to attract the best talent for their open positions.
