Recruitment often gets the short shrift when it comes to budget allotments, so it can be easy to assume that most challenges hiring managers face stem from a lack of cash.
According to CareerBuilder’s new Enterprise Pulse of Recruitment Survey, nearly half (46 percent) of hiring managers reported that the biggest factor preventing them from overcoming their recruitment challenges is time. About a quarter (24 percent) said it was lack of budget, closely followed by lack of the right internal people to get the job done (21 percent) and lack of the necessary software or technology (9 percent).
What does this mean for you?
It’s no secret that time is a precious commodity, but it may be difficult to notice just how much efficiency can have an impact on your recruitment efforts. When faced with particularly tricky recruitment challenges, take a step back and consider the problem from another angle. As a recruitment professional, it’s important to evaluate your strategy, your systems and your team members to ensure everything is running as smoothly as possible.
