The recruitment industry today is at an unprecedented crossroads where only the best recruiters will survive into the future.
Be the one to beat the odds.
The picture is not pretty. 85% of HR decision makers admit to having made a bad hire at some point in the past and 2 in 5 of all new hires turn out to be bad hires within 18 months of the start of their employment. This equates to an alarming 40% of all new hires.
The recruitment industry is facing its most significant challenge for decades - the issue of placing the wrong candidate into the wrong job.
To make matters worse, like it or not, this situation is negatively impacting how clients perceive you. New data shows over 50% of HR decision makers are becoming more reluctant to use Recruitment Agencies due to a perception that the cost is lower when hiring in-house.
Now, more than ever, as professional recruiters you must differentiate yourselves within this challenging market to rise above these negative perceptions and come out on top with outstanding levels of client satisfaction.
But recruiters cannot produce better hires using the traditional assessment criteria.
Skills, Experience, Cultural Fit. These three elements are the backbone of our candidate assessment criteria but they’re also benign, safe and somewhat limiting. Our understanding of people is evolving considerably in the 21st century. Using these three elements is only giving you an incomplete picture of candidates.
These are analogue measures in a digital age.
Given that every recruiter is using a combination of these three elements to differentiate candidates, in order to make better hires, increase your competitiveness and differentiate yourself in the market, you need something else.
You need an additional criteria for assessing candidates that takes you further.
