If you were declined for a role for which you applied, would you ever apply to that organization again?

Slightly more than two-thirds (67.7 percent) of candidate respondents would apply to a company again if they were declined for a specific job. More than half of the youngest group (aged 18 to 24) either would not reapply or were unsure about reapplying.

Recruiters Rate the Most Effective Methods to Attract Passive Candidates

Recruiters Rate the Most Effective Methods to Attract Passive Candidates

In Hudson/HRO Today’s 2016 Global Candidate Study, we asked recruiters to rate the effectiveness of recruiting methods used to attract passive candidates.

Of the 16 engagement tools rated by recruiters in the survey, 10 were rated as “effective” (4 or 5 on a 5-point scale) by at least one-half of respondents.

Phone calls were rated most effective as a recruitment tool for passive candidates overall, selected by 88.9 percent of the recruiter respondents. Recruiters rated personalized email (85.5 percent) and recruiting agencies (81.5 percent) as the next two most effective methods. These top three methods are fairly traditional, but clearly still deliver results. They also don’t rely on the candidate responding to a posting or seeing a job opening notification.

 
 
 

Sourcing From Home Isn’t As Lonely As You Think

Sourcing From Home Isn’t As Lonely As You Think

This article originally appeared on the SourceCon blog on January 26, 2017.

Any extrovert who has just accepted a talent acquisition role that operates remotely will be met with this question: “You’re so social, won’t you miss that aspect of being in an office?” Or, this statement: “I could NEVER do that. WAY too lonely for me.” Said extrovert will shrug these things off and look forward to their new experience until it becomes strikingly apparent and obvious that yes, some days are incredibly lonely, yes you do sometimes miss the hustle and bustle of office life and “OMG WHAT HAVE I DONE?!” thoughts start to cloud your once glistening excitement for this new opportunity. If you’re in this spot currently, I’m here to tell you it gets better.

Why you might be missing out on the best hires to take your team into the future

Why you might be missing out on the best hires to take your team into the future

At Hudson, we have a lot of conversations with senior business leaders about the critical skill sets they need to hire to help their businesses adapt and change in a fast-moving world. No one wants to be the next Kodak.

What we keep coming back to is that businesses need people who are adaptable and flexible in their mindset and in their approach to work.

Why businesses want to hire for adaptability

Ten years ago, you could build a career on a single specialized skill set. However, today the entire business model that the skill set is based on could be an antiquated relic of the past.
