Recruitment Trends for 2020

By Employer, General

A new year – and new decade – brings expected change to the recruitment process.

So, how will employers evolve their recruitment process to secure and retain top Gen Z talent? In 2019, companies focused on employer branding and candidate relationship management.

In 2020, employers are building people analytics, preparing for an economic recession, and allocating more resources into recruitment than ever before. What hasn’t changed? Candidates still maintain the leverage. They drive the recruitment process. It’s 2020 – the war for talent’s still ongoing, the talent’s younger (“okay, boomer…”), and these are your 2020 recruitment trends! Read More

With more than 21 million jobs gained, the current decade experienced many influential recruitment moments. These are recruitment’s defining moments – one from each year (with some honourable mentions!) – of the 2010-2019 decade: Read More

2019 Recruitment Trends

By Employer, General

Last January, we discussed artificial intelligence, passive candidates, video assessments, and more. This year, unlike the talent scarcity that’s got North American employers sweating, there’s no deficiency in emerging – and returning – recruitment trends for this decade’s remainder. As candidates continue wrestling leverage from employers, organizations will adapt accordingly to innovate their recruitment strategies, shielding top candidates from those prowling and pilfering competitors. It’s 2019 – the talent’s still hot, the recruitment battle’s hotter, and these are your 2019 recruitment trends!
