This month we asked the Research Team how they have seen the changes in Client requirements and how best to deliver against them:

“Today recruitment demands are becoming even more stressful and time consuming as talent shortages are presenting businesses with internal challenges. There’s no doubt that HR Managers are becoming more aware that traditional methods of recruitment have come under intense and growing scrutiny in recent years.  Competition in recruitment is becoming fierce for in-demand profiles and desired skill sets. Data driven research can be used in the success of individual hires and also wider recruitment initiatives such as business development. Businesses are now placing expectations firmly on data-driven research as a solution.

Now, the access to online portals such as LinkedIn and other services we can subscribe to have levelled the playing field. Data is everywhere and accessible to recruitment researchers who harness the information correctly to react to demands.
