In a perfect world, if you were given unlimited resources, what business challenges would you prioritize first?
That’s the question both staffing firms and staffing firm clients were asked in CareerBuilder’s latest Pulse of Recruitment survey. What’s interesting is that while staffing firms would ideally like to balance their time among hiring, retention, using data and implementing new technology, employers chose retention as their top priority.
What Does This Mean For You?
If you’re a recruiter at a staffing firm, it’s important to understand your clients’ top priorities. Given today’s competitive job market, it’s clear employers would like to devote more resources to retaining their best employees. By demonstrating how you can assist them with their hiring needs, they can then focus more time on overcoming their other business challenges – including keeping top talent.
