Factors Affecting Recruitment

Posted 21 February 2014

It’s no surprise that  recruitment services are needing to evolve constantly in order to meet the demands of both clients and candidates, which is why this month First Call Contract Services are highlighting factors that affect recruitment:

  • Organisations demanding the best. HR now have the job of not just justifying cost but also the quality of work an individual carries out, this is as a result of organisation demanding more the best candidates available for the role.

  • The role of technology and data in the hiring process. Due to the rise of social media there is now a huge amount of data available online, not only about potential candidates but also about organisations.  Social Media sites like Facebook and Twitter are now being used to check through a possible candidates credentials before hiring.

  • Candidates demand quality services. In this current climate candidates are able to demand more from a recruitment service.  Recruiters are increasingly aware that any interaction the candidate has with an organisation informs them of their prospective employer.  Thus poor recruitment experiences reflect badly on a recruiter and indeed the organisation.

  • Appreciating transferable skills. Many organisations stick to their own sectors when sourcing candidates, however recruitment companies need encourage organisations to recruit outside the sector, and for them to look at this as a part of business strategy that could potentially differentiate them from competitors.

There are many industries that have to adapt and changed on a regular basis due to their environment, and the recruitment sector is one of them. At First Call we recognise that we need to keep ahead of the times in order to cater for both our clients and candidates needs.  To find out more about how we can help you, please contact us here.
