One-half of organizations surveyed by SHRM in a 2016 report cited factors such as a low number of applicants (51%), lack of the needed work experience among candidates (50%) and competition from other employers (49%) as reasons for difficulty finding candidates for their open positions.

With challenging recruiting conditions in the current labor market (according to 68% of HR professionals), a more strategic talent acquisition approach is likely to position employers better for the talent war than tactical recruiting activities.
