Is the candidate pool really drying up or are you just wading in the wrong waters?
The results are in! We surveyed hundreds of HR professionals for our Recruitment and Retention Trends report and learned that employers are struggling to find talent for open positions, with more than half of the respondents saying that it is their biggest problem.
Interestingly, the survey also uncovered a likely reason why they perceive the talent pool as shallow. According to the data, when evaluating potential hires, most organizations are only focusing on candidates’ skills, experience, and education – or hard criteria – and are not including “soft” criteria, such as personalities and behaviors, as part of the job requirements. By emphasizing “hard” skills only, they’re inadvertently narrowing their own candidate pool.
