Many businesses face issues in terms of successful hiring programs that specifically target people with disabilities, meaning there are countless organizations in need of support in this area.
An increased need for efficiency
According to LinkedIn's 2017 Global Recruiting Trends report, 83 percent of all heads of talent acquisition currently believe that attracting and taking on new talent should be a top business priority for their organization this year.
What's more, the report showed how 56 percent of managers also expect to increase their level of hiring. At the same time, 61 percent of recruiting teams will remain the same size, while budgets will be held stable for 52 percent of firms. All this translates into higher demand among recruiters and less resources to leverage per client.
The theme for talent acquisition professionals in the coming year is therefore, 'how to do more with less?' It's a trend that we've seen repeated time and again since the economic downturn and subsequent recovery. Recruiter bandwidth is therefore at a premium again in 2017, with teams facing issues including fewer available candidates, competing job offers for top candidates, and more jobs to fill than ever.
It's for this reason that recruiters may need more support in the months ahead, especially when hoping to recruit individuals with disabilities. However, at GettingHired that is precisely what we are able to offer to our clients.
