Today Entelo is proud to deliver the 2018 Recruiting Trends Report which summarizes and highlights the strategies, pain points and motivations driving candidate sourcing, engagement and outreach for modern talent teams. Last year, we released our inaugural report which uncovered preliminary hiring trends taking us into 2017. This year, the survey expands to also examine how companies and talent acquisition leaders allocate budgets and prioritize resources around key concerns such as employer branding, diversity efforts and the growing importance of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
After surveying 1,143 talent acquisition professionals from around the world, Entelo is here with key findings that will help recruiters stay ahead of the hiring trends and arm their teams with the right tools to win the war for talent in the year to come.
Here are 10 key findings and how to use them to improve your hiring best practices:
Word of mouth is a powerful thing.
Whether the best advice you've ever heard came from a mentor or a stranger, good words of wisdom stick because they're relevant to something you believe in, and maybe inspire workarounds to certain challenges.
The year's end tends to be a time of reflection and evaluation, and the same applies in recruiting! We reached out to a handful of people in the talent acquisition space to learn what transformed the way they hired this year.
Being a woman in the workforce lends itself to unique challenges. While many companies support gender diversity, workplace equality remains an initiative yearning for action.
So often the picture painted for working women isn’t favorable. We’re 15% less likely than men to be promoted, earn less than men for same roles, and continue to be professionally underrepresented, holding under 30% of roles in senior management. Evidently, at the current pace, it’ll take longer than a century before there’s gender equality in the C-suite.
If you’re like me, reading through that might have been mentally exhausting. Good news about women in the workforce can be few and far between. That’s discouraging, especially in the midst of groups taking action on diversity and inclusion, like Project Include, Catalyst, Code2040, Lean In, and Paradigm, just to name a few.
In light of this, we’re drawing the attention back to the power of potential, and narratives of growth. Entelo’s Reflect, Grow, Empower will share lessons on being bold and resilient, as told by women leaders in tech. Leading up to our panel, we spoke with speakers Linqia’s Maria Sipka, Floodgate’s Ann Miura-Ko, and Decker Communications’ Hilary Davis to learn more about their pillars of inspiration, success, and hustle.
Lou Adler joins Hiring On All Cylinders to share a sneak peek of his webinar later this week. Best known for his Performance-based Hiring methodology, Lou emphasizes the importance of recruiters seeking out growth in candidates' career trajectories, not just the right skills or experiences. This helps talent teams identify the best performers driven by challenges, the opportunity to evolve their skill sets and develop with their org in the long run. In this episode, Lou breaks down the performance-based hiring model, and why orgs too often focus on the wrong metrics to track good fit candidates.
We’ll be broadcasting live as the official podcast of this year’s HR Technology Conference and Expo! Over the three-day event, more than 50 leading influencers and top practitioners in the talent industry will share their perspectives on emerging trends in the space and how they’re solving the biggest challenges in HR.
Will you be at HR Tech? Say hi and see us in action. HOAC will be recording live on the floor right next to the exhibition entrance. Stay up to date on who’s on the show, and get a sneak peek of just some of the luminaries on the lineup so far.
SourceCon is one of talent acquisition’s biggest events, connecting influencers and practitioners to share their savvy on the state of hiring.
Over 700 attendees and 32 speakers from companies including Indeed, GitHub, and Lockheed Martin gathered in Anaheim last week for the conference. While the “two days of sourcing magic” have wrapped up since, we round up highlights from a handful of lucky attendees sharing their favorite conversations.
