Infographic: key results & statistics

Our friends at Lucas Blake have created an infographic based on LinkedIn’s recent Global Recruitment Trends Report 2016. They have broken down the results and statistics and presented them in a clear and colourful way.

As you can see from the infographic top priorities for staffing trends slightly shifted, for ex. there was an increase in Recruiting Passive Talents from 22% in 2014 to 27% in 2015, while ‘Growing base of new clients’ decreased by 9% since last year. There is a correlation between Hiring Volume vs Hiring Budget as both of them had a decreasing trend from 2011 to 2015.

The infographic shows steady increase in top sources from placement volume with Social Professional networks leading with 61% in 2015.

The report addresses very interesting criteria as ‘Quality of Hire’. It is a well-known fact that candidates are not exposed sometimes to all the requirements of the job, which in turn does not let them to survive the probationary period and leaves both parties in a mutual disappointment. In order to create a win-win for both parties, the recruitment process should be closely tracked and analysed. It also affects company branding as a quality employer.

The criteria that is critical for tracking 'quality of hire' raises a question about the most valuable metric that employers use to track recruitment team’s performance today. It is segmented into the “number of candidate placements’ and ‘quality of candidate”. Although there is a decrease in both criteria from the last year: 3% decrease in ‘quality of candidate’ and 6% in ‘number of placements’.
