Oct,2016

Is your organization experiencing major delays in hiring? You’re not alone.

Leaders in recruiting technology have compiled national research* and what they found is eye-opening. Filling a position is taking longer than ever—approximately 30 days on average. We’ve parsed the reports into simple data points for you.

 

 

The 30-Day Tipping Point
– After the first month, there is a 57% chance the position stays unfilled for the next 90+ days.- Screened resumes spend the longest with Hiring Manager—up to 13 days.- Why? Hiring Managers report screened resumes aren’t even the right technical fit.Call in the Specialist Recruiters, right? Actually…While 80% of Recruiters report they have a high understanding of the job, 61% of Hiring Managers report Recruiters have a low to moderate understanding, at best.Screen Better: 77% of Hiring Managers think Recruiters do this inadequately
Communicate Better: 51% of Recruiters think Hiring Managers aren’t clear
We know the impact of prolonged hiring practices: staff burnout and lost productivity  

Bottom line: Hiring managers need help. Better help than what’s available.
