Glassdoor recently compiled a great list of HR and Recruiting statistics. You can see the full collection of 65 HR and Recruiting Stats for 2018 here. But, here are the key stats that I feel are a very compelling reason to partner with a staffing and recruiting firm:
- 76% of hiring decision-makers say attracting quality candidates is their #1 challenge.
HR needs the support of a staffing and recruiting partner to streamline the process and allow them to focus on quality candidates instead of screening through hundreds of unqualified candidates.
- 88% of hiring decision makers agree that an informed candidate is a quality candidate.
Great staffing firms will educate employees on company culture, expectations and requirements before they show up on the job site. This gives the candidate a head start, streamlines on-boarding and shortens the training/learning curve. On the direct placement side, recruiting agencies also educate candidates and greatly increase the chances of offer acceptance.
- 93% of job seekers say it’s important to be informed of culture, mission, values, etc.
Again, a great staffing partner will help educate candidates ahead of time and make sure there is a great cultural fit for both the employer and employee. This helps improve retention, morale, productivity and more.
- It costs employers 33% of a worker’s annual survey to hire a replacement if that worker leaves.
Turnover is costly. Bad hires are painful. Using temp-to-hire can dramatically improve retention rates and greatly reduce the chance of a bad hire.
- 47% of workers felt shame for taking their well-deserved vacation.
Numerous studies show that when workers don’t take vacation time their productivity, morale, and innovation suffer. But in many organizations, there is so much pressure that staff feels guilty taking time off. In fact, 54% of U.S. employees have only taken half of their eligible vacation over the past 12 months! A staffing firm can provide temporary support to companies so their teams don’t have the guilt of taking time off and work can still get done. That can lead to dramatic improvements in productivity and innovation.
