2020 Recruitment Trends You Need to Know About

Increased Automation

Recruitment can be a time-consuming task. It can also be fairly expensive for an organization. That’s why it’s important to leverage all necessary resources when seeking candidates. For instance, if you were trying to recruit a CEO or similar executive for a company, you might want to enlist the help of an executive hiring firm. With expert help, you can save time while also freeing up your staff to focus on other important HR tasks.

Greater Emphasis on Video Recruiting

Like automation, video recruiting isn’t exactly a new concept. That said, companies have begun to recognize the value that video recruiting offers to a greater degree than ever before.

Increased Emphasis on Culture Fit

Culture fit is another factor that is becoming increasingly important to organizations across virtually all industries. This may be due to recent improvements in data analysis technology. In recent years, companies have been able to analyze HR data more effectively than before. This has helped them more accurately identify which factors contribute the most to employee success. Many have found that employees who fit in with the company culture are far more likely to thrive than those who do not.

Offering Flexibility

As mentioned, remote work is becoming more common. So are similar trends, such as offering employees flexible scheduling options.

More Diversity in Hiring

Once more, organizations are increasingly relying on software to analyze HR and employee data, using the results to determine employee success rates and other metrics. This has also resulted in many organizations recognizing the importance of diversity in the workplace.
