Nearly 250 HR professionals from North America, the United Kingdom, and other countries shared their views on the shortage of specialized and innovative talent, how they use technology to source and engage top candidates and the ever-shrinking time to do it all.
Key survey findings include:
"After years of recession, the balance of power has quickly shifted and job candidates are once again in the drivers' seat," said Steve Throneberry, InterviewStream chief revenue officer. "Whether it's an attractive employer brand, a strong social media presence, or the use of tools such as video interviewing, employers need every advantage to stand apart from competitors. Companies who can quickly tap greater numbers of specialized and innovative employees are going to come out on top."
Survey respondents' organizations ranged in size from under 200 employees to more than 100,000. Industries included recruiting/staffing, healthcare, financial services, nonprofit, technology, government, and energy.
