Most Of The Talent Pool Is ‘Pactive’
Nearly everyone is ‘pactive’ (passively active) in terms of being open to a new job. For recruiters this means that the talent pool is huge and thus their recruitment marketing and sourcing activities are more important than ever.
The Most Active Job Seekers Are Young And Highly Educated
Younger educated people are constantly looking for new work, and open to change. These demographics know that a lifelong career in the one organisation is a thing of the past, nor do most want it. This is also the demographic that is pushing the rise of the contingent workforce.
New Hires Go From Active To ‘Pactive’
Early engagement for a new employees is critical, as starting a new job doesn’t see the end of the search. Candidates go from active to ‘pactive’ and as such are vulnerable to new opportunity. Teams wanting to decrease this risk and improve retention should look at the onboarding process to see if improvements can be made.
Candidates Are Looking For Good Pay, Flexibility, Location and Meaning
Most candidates focus mostly on three things, on good pay and compensation, a good location and flexibility (both which related to time) and doing meaningful work.
Don’t Forget To Register!
