With the impacts of furlough, downsizing of HR and in-house talent acquisition teams and a significant increase in volumes of applications to roles, Pertemps Managed solutions believes on-demand talent acquisition will dramatically grow in 2021.
How does on-demand recruitment work?
On-demand recruitment is a specialised recruiting solution which focuses on providing flexibility, speed and industry expertise to organisations which need additional support. Think of on-demand recruitment as “leasing” a team of recruiters to enhance your organisation’s in-house talent acquisition capabilities, providing you with the flexibility of choosing when and for how long you need talent acquisition services based solely on your needs.
When should you consider using on-demand
You should consider engaging an on-demand recruitment provider, if you are experiencing one or more of the following talent acquisition challenges:
• If your organization is experiencing rapid hiring growth which may overshadow your internal recruiting
• If your hiring needs are inconsistent or unpredictable and you need support for your in-house talent team
which can be switched on and switched off again.
• If you need to fill one or more niche or hard-to-fill roles quickly.
• If you need support sourcing talent to fill your candidate pipeline with qualified talent.
The benefits of using on-demand recruitment includes not only gaining access to an expert team of recruiters
with up to date market insight, but tapping into readily available talent pools, access of new talent technologies including video interviewing, the ability to react quickly to urgent hiring needs.
Most businesses have needed to adapt since the start of the pandemic and with 2021 fast approaching, we
anticipate many organisations will move towards a flexible on-demand recruitment model. Will this be something for your business to consider?
