It’s time to assess our recruiting wins and losses and to look towards the recruiting trends of the new year.
There are three major themes I believe will shape the recruiting trends of 2017.
The improving economy: Recent economic gains have translated to increased job openings going hand in hand with decreased unemployment. These gains have created a candidate-driven market that will make competing for talent even tougher this year.
Innovations in recruitment technology: Hiring volume is predicted to increase in 2017, which means time-constrained recruiters need better tech tools to enable their success. This year, look for advances in recruitment tech that will automate or streamline parts of the recruiting workflow that were previously difficult or impossible to do.
A focus on workplace diversity: As companies are starting to recognize the social and financial benefits of having a diverse workforce, the ability to attract qualified diverse candidates will become a sought after competitive advantage in 2017.
