Top Staffing Trends of 2015

CaptureClient and candidate behavior is constantly changing, which means trends within the staffing industry will continue to evolve as well to meet the needs of these consumers. Take a look at the following key staffing trends for 2015:

Enhanced Social Media Presence: According to LinkedIn’s recent survey on Key Insights for Recruitment in 2015, 76% of job applications viewed an employee’s profile six months prior applying to a job at that specific company. As we move forward with technology advancements, it is crucial for recruiters and employers to maintain a polished and updated profile on all Social Media outlets.

Mobile Recruiting: 77% of job seekers are currently using mobile job search applications in the midst of their job search. Our smartphone is the gateway to connecting with the outside world and has now revolutionized how we search for employment as well. Whether this is connecting with your recruiter, searching for opportunities, or checking your application status- these functions are now being done from a handheld device.

Branding: Due to the high volume of review based sites and other online directories, candidates are more aware of company history, culture, structure of salary, and benefits before they even walk through the front door. According to Glassdoor, 90% of job seekers read reviews of the company before accepting the job offer. Reviews are constantly being posted on hundreds of online directories such as Yelp, Facebook, Indeed, Google, etc.

Big Data & Big Talent: As the bar continues to rise for the latest and greatest technology advancements, so does the talent of potential job candidates. Employers are looking for top talent to fulfill their open positions, many of which are concentrated in key segments such as Big Data or candidate application development.

Remaining top-of-mind within our consumers is the key takeaway in order to prepare for what lies ahead within the staffing industry.
