The beginning of the year is a time for looking forward and planning. What should we anticipate for recruiting in 2020?
Here are a few of recruiting’s probable challenges in 2020, along with their ramifications.
While low unemployment has been a recruiting challenge for a while, it dipped to historically low levels at the end of 2019. Because of this, employers may continue to have fewer qualified candidates for a given role and thus have a longer time to fill vacancies, which also likely means a longer time to productivity. It would be useful to plan for this now.
To combat this issue, employers may need to expand their recruiting efforts’ geographic area, offer relocation benefits, or consider offering remote work options when possible. They may also consider identifying and reaching out to passive candidates more, as this will likely become even more important.
Being proactive in recruiting efforts in general will be more important in a low-unemployment environment. See more tips here. Read more here…
