What Will Be the Biggest Recruiting Trend of 2014?

We’re trying to determine the biggest trends of next year with our annual Staffing and Recruiting Trends Survey for North America. What industry technologies and best practices do you think will be most important to your business in 2014? How did your recruiting agency perform in terms of hit rate, fill rate, number of placements, revenue, compensation, billings, and number of applications compared to your competitors? How important are applicant tracking systems to your firm’s success? To your competitors’ success?

A few of the things we found out last year (amongst hundreds of other data points):

  • More than 98% of recruiting professionals used social media for recruiting
  • 73% of recruiting firms met or exceeded their revenue goals in 2012
  • The single most important metric used by staffing firms to measure their success was “total number of placements.”

Take our Trends Survey today and we’ll send you our annual benchmark report when it’s completed in February. You can also enter to win a $500 American Express gift card and we’ll make a donation to a charity of your choice – just for finishing the survey. Your responses will be totally anonymous.

Update: The survey is now closed – thanks to all 1,337 respondents who completed it! Please visit the Resources page to download the 2014 North American and UK Trends Reports.
