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.
