3 Things Typical Recruiting Agencies Get Wrong

  • I have functioned as a 3rd party agency recruiter as well as hired recruiters to assist in hard to fill roles when I didnt have the bandwidth.
  • Having seen recruitment from both sides I can say without hesitation that there are things many 3rd party recruiters consistently get wrong.
  • As a 3rd party recruiter I tried to communicate frequently and I decided to stop working on a search I would let my clients know.
  • Another thing recruiters get wrong is they tell you they have a really exciting candidate but when they send the candidate over its someone you have already seen because they have applied to roles before.
  • The sad truth is many 3rd party recruiters use job postings as a way to find candidates.

Recruiting and Retention Are the Number One Issues Troubling Business Leaders Today

  • Hiring managers report at every level, in every industry, in organizations small and mid-size and large-scale alike that hiring and retaining top talent is more difficult today than at any time in recent memory.
  • Make no mistake, the talent wars are affecting organizations of every shape and size: – – And the talent wars are not going away any time soon: – – The rising demand for effective workers promises to outpace supply for the foreseeable future in nearly every field.
  • On the other end of the age spectrum, organizations with significant age bubbles in their workforce will feel the greatest effects as the oldest, most experienced employees retire.
  • And if employers get on board, the most valuable employees are the ones who will reap the most benefits in terms of flexible working arrangements and other rewards.

A report warns that many apprenticeships are simply low-paid jobs – RECRUITING TIMES

  • The government claims that quality is at the centre of its apprenticeship reforms – – High-street stores are reclassifying low-paid roles as apprenticeships while receiving subsidies for training, according to a recent study.
  • The report explains that groups of employers joined together as part of the governments broader package of changes to apprenticeships to set down the new apprenticeship standards.
  • It commented that while some employers took the chance to introduce high-quality standards, others seemed simply to reclassify poor-quality, low-skill and frequently low-wage jobs as need to be skilled roles necessitating long-lasting training of at least one year, claimed the government in 2013.
  • They should also lead to complete competency and endow the trainee with transferable skills as part of a job; however, many well-known firms appear to be advertising on the governments apprenticeship website for apprentices in apparently unskilled roles.
  • A Kentucky Fried Chicken advert for an apprentice hospitality team member describes the opportunity as part of a development programme focused on knowledge, skills and behaviours; however, the role involves cooking and assembling KFC meals, serving customers at the tills, and adhering to standards of cleanliness.
