SPEED is one of those things that recruiters and employers like to measure to demonstrate the efficiency, or otherwise, of the recruitment process.
Certainly one consequence of the recession-induced decision-making drought is that the recruitment process takes longer.
This is understandable – the average CEO has quite enough on his or her plate at the moment.
The result? Hiring decisions simply have to wait their turn in the queue.
And so things are in a recession! In the last week alone we have had more than one client lose out on candidates they wanted to hire who had more than one offer.
Recession? What recession I hear you ask?
Aren’t there supposed to be no jobs out there?
