I recently interviewed and surveyed hiring managers about the challenges they face with recruitment.

Here are some of the things they told me . . .

43% said they wish they had more time for recruitment.

‘Finding the time I’d genuinely like to spend looking through CVs and in interviews - that’s my biggest challenge’.

‘Making the time to really connect with candidates - as human beings'.

31% said they don't have the right resources to manage the recruitment process.

 ‘One of my biggest challenges is a lack of support internally to work with me through the recruitment process - and provide guidance’.

19% said they have difficulty finding relevant/suitable candidates.

 ‘Finding people with a balance of technical skills and a human approach, that’s my biggest challenge’.

More insights to come next week.
