One of the major trends we’ve noticed this year was an increased desire by hiring committees to see a diverse candidate pool, even if it means delaying the extension of an offer to a stellar candidate who has completed the interview process already and performed well.

JMJ Phillip Executive Search has collected and synthesized executive search and recruiting trends in 2019 to compile a list of the hiring trends anticipated for 2020. The list, an annual tradition for the executive search firm specializing in manufacturing, supply chain, and technology, features numerous insights across hiring, technology, and candidate trends.

“JMJ Phillip experienced a substantial year of growth in 2019, and over the course of the year, we noticed several important trends in recruiting and executive search,” said Kristen Fowler, Vice President at JMJ Phillip. “Each year, we collect executive search trends and report some of the challenges that we’ve seen over the previous year. We’ve seen some trends and swift changes in the industry this year that can potentially impact hiring in 2020."

“One of the major trends we’ve noticed this year was an increased desire by hiring committees to see a diverse candidate pool, even if it means delaying the extension of an offer to a stellar candidate who has completed the interview process already and performed well. There is a general feeling of not wanting to miss out on candidates who haven't surfaced in the initial search efforts. As these trends continue into 2020, we can expect that clients will continue to wait to ensure that they have the perfect person, no matter how long it takes," Fowler continues.

Additional 2020 Hiring Trends insights include:

  • Companies will continue to place a heavy emphasis on hiring a candidate with the personality traits to fit into the company's culture.
  • Travel is up. Candidates are traveling more around the holiday seasons, slowing down the interview and hiring process.
  • Technology will continue to disrupt and streamline the hiring process, with video methods increasing in prevalence.
