What do the lives of talent acquisition professionals look like and what keeps them up at night?
Organisations have experienced a seismic shift in the way they work over the last two years. A global pandemic, the rapid shift to remote working then the so called Great Resignation. Much has been written about the impact that the changing workplace will have on businesses and candidates – but one group that is all too often overlooked is those who work in talent acquisition.
That’s why we commissioned an independent research survey to more than 500 talent acquisition professionals to discovering how they’re handling the shift in the recruitment industry.
Our State of the Recruitment Sector report reveals an industry facing unprecedented challenges: stress, workloads and lack of support are pushing some professionals to breaking point.
But it’s not all doom and gloom. Our survey also shows us how much good these teams are achieving for their organisations, and for society as a whole.
Some of our findings make for worrying reading. The purpose of this report is not to scold organisations, but to create a roadmap for decision-makers to invest in the tools, technologies and resources their teams need to make a genuine impact.
