The findings in Entelo's 2020 Recruiting Trends Report are based on survey data collected between December 2019 and January 2020 – well before the global spread of COVID-19 and its subsequent transformation of today's workforce.
It is clear that the challenges and priorities outlined in the report have shifted in response to today's pandemic. For this reason, we have revised the 2020 Recruiting Trends Report to include survey data collected throughout March and April 2020 which paints a more accurate picture of the current Talent Acquisition landscape.
While recruiting is a big part of the job description, there's still a ton of value recruiters can add amidst a slowdown in hiring. Think of all the high-level, strategic projects that you’ve started and stopped in favor of more immediate hiring needs – the projects that would completely up-level your recruiting process, if only you had the time to dedicate to them. Hiring slowdowns give you that time, allowing you to focus on more proactive initiatives and put your team in the best position possible once hiring commences.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing some initiatives you can prioritize during a hiring lull, many of which are a focus for our most successful clients. Today’s hot topic - Market Mapping! Below we outline what it is, why you should do it, and how to get started.
The changing landscape of today’s economy has begun to set in for workers across the globe in very real ways. For some in industries like e-commerce, manufacturing, food retail, telemedicine, telecom, and healthcare, this has meant longer hours and increased hiring. But for workers in sectors like the service industry, who can not continue to collect an income while remaining at home, the reality is layoffs, furloughs, and unemployment.
Simply put, the current pandemic has caused a rapid shift in the supply and demand of the talent market. Where there is a growing demand for more workers in a number of digital services and food retail industries, there is a growing supply of job seekers entering the job market from severely impacted industries. If you are a recruiter ramping up hiring, here’s why you should consider tapping into this growing talent pool – and how to adapt your recruiting strategy to do so.
The Talent Acquisition landscape has changed overnight. During this webinar, we will discuss how sourcers and recruiters can quickly adapt to the current state of work as well as prepare for the recruitment rebound by building an effective candidate pipeline strategy. Join us as Alejandro González de la Peña, Sr. Customer Success Executive, Talent Insights and Innovation Strategist, discusses how some of the top companies around the world are handling this change and using this time to build solid candidate pipelines!
As the current situation continues to unfold, a number of difficult workplace realities have already set in. While most organizations are facing a loss in business amidst the financial downturn, some companies have been forced to furlough or layoff employees. The good news is that a number of companies are continuing to hire or are even ramping up hiring in order to meet the economy’s new demands. If you have found yourself on the job hunt during these uncertain times, here’s a compiled list of resources for job-seeking recruiters, sourcers, and Talent Acquisition professionals to help you land your next gig.
This year’s college seniors are quickly approaching graduation, which usually calls for tons of recruitment activity on campus as top organizations compete to recruit the class of 2020. Yet, with campuses cleared out and courses moved online, there’s nothing ‘usual’ about this spring’s university recruitment. To secure the top new grads in 2020, recruiters will have to take a virtual approach to campus recruiting.
As things rapidly progress on the COVID-19 front, maintaining a sense of normalcy and balance is essential. With more of our community across the globe working from home indefinitely, we want to make sure that you have the necessary resources to continue working towards your hiring goals digitally. Below you will find an extensive list of all our digital interviewing and hiring resources - from tactical how-to guides to best practices and strategies shared by TA leaders.
Amidst the rising concern over COVID-19, many workplaces are offering greater flexibility in their work from home and remote employee policies. In fact, working from home has been one of the biggest recommendations to come out of the CDC, who’ve urged workers to stay home if they or a family member falls ill.
We have already seen the economic impact of people limiting their normal daily activities. What will that look like for businesses once their normal in-office 9-5 has been disrupted? And more specifically for TA professionals, how will a predominantly remote or WFH workforce impact interviewing and hiring goals?
Results from a survey conducted by Talent Board show that 22% of organizations believe Coronavirus measures will disrupt or impact in-person interviews and subsequently, 37% will look to digital interviews as a solution. Here are three ways to incorporate digital interviewing into your existing hiring process in order to accommodate an increasingly remote workforce.
As any data-driven recruitment team knows, if you aren’t tracking key hiring metrics then you have little power to improve them. From time-to-hire, to engagement metrics and candidate satisfaction scores, to funnel conversions and drop-off metrics, the data you collect can tell you a lot about the areas of your hiring process in need of some attention. Today, we are breaking down two big picture metrics that can help you prove the value of recruitment at your organization: Cost-Per-Hire and Cost-of-Attrition.
To understand today’s competitive hiring landscape, Entelo’s 2020 Recruiting Trends Report examines the slight, but pivotal changes in the world of talent acquisition.
We analyzed data from hundreds of recruiters to develop a set of recruiting benchmarks to help you assess your own company’s hiring performance. Here are 6 of the most important recruiting trends you should know in 2020 and how they should inform your recruiting strategy.
Today’s consumer world is driven by experiences. If people hate the experience of using your solution - even if it solves a major challenge for them - you’ll struggle to increase product adoption. That’s why more and more companies are investing in UX/UI design and why, in 2019, 87% of organizations reported hiring more UX designers to be a top priority.
With so many companies focusing their hiring efforts on UX talent, how can you make sure your organization stands out amongst the bunch? Here are three key steps to discovering top design talent before the competition.
According to our 2020 Recruiting Trends Report, 73% of recruiters find higher quality candidates from passive sourcing than any other source - which has led recruiting organizations to adopt more aggressive sourcing strategies in order to compete for top passive talent. Consequently, the same candidates (with the online resumes that check all the boxes) are continually inundated with recruiting outreach noise.
The reality is to get ahead in 2020, you will need to find ways to source more untraditional candidates that have the right mix of skills and experience to excel in your organization. Here are three ways to use Entelo to do just that.
As any seasoned recruiter knows, the fate of your recruiting outreach often comes down to just one sentence – your subject line. If your subject line fails to catch a candidate’s eye, it doesn’t matter how much time you spent sourcing the perfect candidate, personalizing a thoughtful message, or choosing the perfect time of day to send it off. It will still go unread.
In fact, today’s average worker consistently has close to 200 unread emails sitting in their inbox every day. So how can you make sure your message stands out amongst the crowd? We analyzed the thousands of emails sent through Entelo Track to bring you key insights from the highest performing email subject lines. Use these insights to optimize your subject lines for higher open rates and let your expertly-crafted recruiting outreach do the rest!
Today, the opportunity in front of recruiters is greater than ever before. Armed with the necessary tools and insight, recruiters can refine their process, eliminate inefficiencies, mitigate biases, and engage with top talent at the optimal time. However, without an understanding of the new rules and ideals for business and HR, talent teams will be ill-equipped to discover, engage and retain the 21st century workforce. To understand today’s competitive hiring landscape, Entelo’s 2020 Recruiting Trends Report examines the slight, but pivotal changes in the world of talent acquisition.
As competition gets stiffer for companies trying to claim a stake of their respective market, one (very) important success factor is falling to the wayside: employee wellness. In a 2018 study, researchers found that over 61% of employees believed that workplace stress had made them sick, and yet more research has suggested workplace stress to be a leading cause of death in the US.
Ethical implications aside, why should companies care? To put it simply, employee wellness can make or break your bottom line. In fact, recent estimates indicate job stress has cost more than $300 billion for US employees each year.
Whether you have a wellness program in place or are starting from scratch, there are a few key steps you can take at your organization to boost employee morale and increase wellness in the workplace.
