Staffing and Recruiting Trends for 2018Â
By : Jack Thomas / Comments: 0 comment
Here at Rhino Site Services, we have witnessed some huge changes in the recruitment space over the past few years, with 2018 expected to welcome some new trends and innovations that recruiters and HRs must be aware of. Eager to help steer recruiters into this age of modernity, below are a few reoccurring themes we expect to lord the industry in 2018.
Though a rather unambiguous term, mobile recruiting refers to recruitment methods carried out through smartphones; a trend that is only rising in popularity. Expected to take a front seat in 2018, the progression of mobile technology will only aid recruiters.
Figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), showed that 96% of 16-24 year olds access the internet remotely. The average for adults as a whole sit at 74%, with 66% using mobile phones to do this.
With more and more people using the internet 'on-the-go', this means we will see a rise in candidates searching for jobs on mobile-optimised websites and through applications, with recruiters needing to work with mobile-friendly recruitment tools and processes. From liaising with candidates via messaging applications such as WhatsApp to utilising social media's vast talent base, we can expect to see more and more recruiters using their phones in 2018.
Now finding ourselves in generation millennial, retention should be recruiters' focus. Millennials refer to professionals that reached adulthood in the early 21st century; a group that recruiters are finding hard to retain. This is mainly due to the characteristics of the Millennials, not afraid to up sticks and start a new role or opt for long commutes. Putting their career before anything else, by 2015 75% of UK professionals will be made up of Millennials, with recruiters needing to understand what motivates them and how to keep them around.
Valuing the opportunity to grow and admiring managers that can provide them with feedback, in order to retain the Millennial, you have to allow them to develop, with recruiters needing to find jobs that accommodate such aspirations.
According to a recent SmartRise study, 49 percent of recruiters report time-to-hire to be within a month, with these timeframes expected to shorten even further as 2018 encroaches. This is mainly because of the negative impacts a long recruitment process can have on the recruitment brand. Taking too long to hire results in a downturn in service or product quality, as well as employee morale. Though you would think that a longer process would enhance your chances of finding the best candidate, it can actually see you lose top-tier candidates, being snapped up by a rival firm that acted quickly.
Many argue that A.I (Artificial Intelligence) will play prominent a prominent role in the future of recruitment. Moving towards a more digital business landscape, with mobile, social, cloud and “big data” transforming the way we work, Artificial Intelligence is expected to streamline the recruitment process, but how? Here are just three ways AI will impact the recruitment space.
Saving time - One of the biggest missions for recruiters is to save time, with productivity being a theme constantly visited. According to many, the introduction of AI will free up a great deal of time for agencies in particular. Passing time-consuming duties such as CV scanning to machines, 2018 is expected to be the year of productivity.
Response – One of the greatest benefits of AI is the fact that it facilitates engagement and improves responsiveness; an issue that needs to be addressed in recruitment. According to a recent survey, over half of those that apply for a job do not hear anything back, meaning recruiters are tarnishing their reputation, appearing as a lazy organisation. Though AI and automation, such eventualities can be swerved.
Talent acquisition – As mentioned, AI will improve responsiveness, consequently improving candidate experience as a whole. By giving potential candidates a memorable experience, recruiters will inevitably acquire and hold on to better talent.
Though it appears AI would solve all of our recruitment woes, it requires a lot of accurate data to be as effective as its human counterpart. However, with huge progressions expected in 2018, we could be well on our way to digitally-focused industry.
2018 is expected to rid of the annual review, with recruiters implementing a continuous approach to reviews. As an exercise that aims to spot issues early, offering constant support to employees is an active rather than reactive way of managing staff. Investing in software to track the outcomes of one-to-ones, technology will also be used to make the practice of reviewing more effective.
This trend is mainly due to Millennials requiring constant feedback, wanting to work for an organisation that is just as invested in their career as they are. According to a recent study, Millennials are currently receiving feedback either daily (19%), weekly (24%) or regularly (23%).
2018 will be the year recruiters start taking employee wellness more seriously, utilising wellness programs to lower absenteeism rates. Attracting talent and having a stronger hold of sick days, such an approach will also encourage a better employer reputation. From financial wellness to health and well-being, businesses will be placing employee experience at the top of their priority list.
With many believing we are heading into a 'Gig Economy', the workforces of 2018 are expected to be 'blended', with teams collaborating with freelances on an array of projects. Creating a new kind of diversity, various studies from Intuit to The Freelancer's Union predict that at least 40% of the workforce will be freelancers in the next few years.
Following on from the previous trend, the way teams are built and managed is set to see a shake-up. Where traditionally HR professionals would work with individuals, we are now seeing HR efforts placed on teams, developing team intelligence to encourage productivity in the workplace. Understanding that great things in business are usually achieved by teams and departments, such an approach simply makes sense.
Welcoming a diverse set of startups on a constant basis, the recruitment industry is forever on the move. Renowned for its competitive nature, 2018 will be no different, with some of the biggest technology firms in the world now entering the recruitment market. This year, Google unveiled details of its new venture; Google Hire. The new app is geared specifically to small businesses, basting the ability to sync information already in Gmail and Google Calendar. Streamlining the interview process, the tech giants also rolled out a 'Jobs' tab, meaning people can search for jobs through a dedicated space on Google.
Let us know what you think, will any of the above trends impact you in 2018?
