‘Candidate Power’ is back

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.
