The balance of power has generally shifted back to the candidate in more than just rare skills markets, according to a report by the REC.
Key findings of the report:
- More employers are competing for the attention of quality candidates.
- Candidates share their experiences – especially negative ones – and this has implications for employer brand.
- There is a discrepancy between what employers and what candidates think is important within the recruitment process.
- Employers are failing to ask candidates to feed back on their recruitment processes, and are missing out on insight that can help them improve.
