Recruiting and retaining the very best talent that is available is clearly one of the top challenges for recruiters in 2016. As technology continues to develop and involve, so it becomes increasingly important in the ways organisations search for potential recruits. In fact, technology has moved so quickly within recruiting that we are now not far from recruitment becoming virtually 100% digitalised.
Every company, no matter what the size should be embracing social media. More and more companies are using social media during their recruitment efforts, and it’s certainly not a coincidence. Employers are vetting their candidate’s one step further by taking to Facebook to screen them fully and see what they’re like outside of an interview setting.
Broadly speaking, the trends that were evident within recruitment in 2015 are expected to continue throughout 2016. These key trends will become all the more prevalent and further embedded into recruitment practice throughout the year. Increased challenge and competition dictate that these are the trends that recruiters must keep up with to stay on top.
The benefits for HR teams in organisations in developing long-term partnerships with their recruiters are self-evident. Recruitment is only one (albeit a very important one) strand of the responsibilities that fall under HR's remit. It can also take up a considerable amount of time and resources. A solid and productive link with a recruitment specialist will free up a HR team's time to be able to focus on other core HR activity such as staff development.
