Most businesses do not understand the hiring process and may be going about it in the incorrect way.  This is understandable as this is not the business’ focus, however incorrect placements can be very costly and time consuming. Trolling LinkedIn or social media for candidates may not be the best source as these are mostly passive candidates not looking to move.  Companies who use electronic applications need to ensure the software and algorithms are not throwing out your best candidates due to incorrect key words.

Trends indicate that more employers are hiring from outside and not from the current workforce.  The reason for this is that they would not need to train the employee up as they would already have the skillset required and bring in new ideas. Companies are hiring due to non-retention to a large extent and not growth for a new skill and employees consider moving a “step up”. Employees without movement internally generally earn lower salaries than most new hires and this causes the existing employees to spend time and energy on either re-positioning themselves in the current company or looking for positions elsewhere. Outside hiring is not a bad idea but companies should possibly look at retention.

During these trying times, employers are looking at reducing costs or looking into technology to replace manual labour as much as possible.  However, companies should not compromise on hiring the best candidate for the position.  With that in mind, Collier will make every effort to find out the culture of your firm to ensure we place the best candidates.
