Recruitment isn’t just a process of hiring the right candidate for the right position it’s also strategic planning to retain candidates.
As time changes and the world is modernizing at a jet speed, the process of recruitment is also evolving day after day. And, that’s the reason why the recruitment trends are ever-changing too.
The past couple of years has brought many drastic swaps to the way we work and communicate, particularly considering the cross-generational workforce in which each generation has different preferences, choices, and perceptions of exploring and leveraging new opportunities, irrespective of their job profile.
In today’s digital era we are living in, the issue of finding not only new employees, but the ‘Right employees,’ is an ongoing challenge. The hiring process has been tough than ever with recruiters and candidates having to adapt to a remote or hybrid mode of working.
Considering the new age workforce model that we are seeking to fill vacant job roles is becoming harder to entice which is making the recruitment and selection process slow when targeting within the vicinity. This is why our recruitment team has expanded its reach to accommodate skilled individuals from across the globe.
Candidates today, especially the Gen Y group, are smart, and well-informed and chose companies that offer flexible working environments, are able to conduct multiple dialogues with them, understand them as assets of the organization, build relationships, and offer opportunities that look at not just their skills, but also at their needs and career aspirations.
To successfully recruit top talent, we as recruiters will need to understand the needs and desires of candidates. A flexible working environment, strong company pedigree, values that are compatible with their own, and the potential to get upskilled are the new age prerequisites for aspiring candidates.
Recruiters need to embark on these factors first, while profitability and other aspects should be the secondary enticing parameters.
