How to Predict High-Risk Candidates When Hiring

By Carrie Kolar Tue, Jul 21,2015 @ AM

Recruiting and hiring candidates can be a risky business. Recruiters try to predict whether the candidate will be an asset to the company based on criteria such as skills, previous performance, and recommendations from other employers. However, one area that recruiters have not been able to measure is whether candidates will commit to the employer long-term. A second-best candidate who stays with the company is a better choice than a first-place candidate who only remains for a matter of months. A candidate who is a “flight risk,” or who is probably to move to another position before bringing value to the company, is a high-risk candidate that employers would rather avoid. While flight risk has been historically difficult to measure, Talent Analytics Corp. has recently released pre-hire flight predictions for job candidates and current employees, which recruiters and hiring managers can use to help assess whether a candidate is the right one for the job.

7 Best Recruiting Strategies for Hiring Success

By Carrie Kolar Wed, Feb 11,2015 @ AM

There is no doubt the U.S. labor market in 2015 will be highly competitive. As demand for top talent increases and the pool of qualified candidates shrinks, hiring and recruiting in 2015 will be rather challenging. Last year, there were 46% newly created position with 800,000 of them being high-tech jobs. On the other hand, labor force participation by the end of 2014 – workers currently employed or who are actively looking for work – was the lowest since 1978. Candidates are in the driver’s seat feeling more comfortable leaving their current job and rejecting offers, making it harder to recruit and retain.

How do you recruit and hire in such a challenging labor market environment? John Younger, CEO of Accolo, a recruitment process outsourcing company, lays down a roadmap for recruiting success in a recent webinar titled, "a recruiter's roadmap to hiring success." Younger offers the follow seven recruiting strategies for hiring success.

By Janine Lucas Thu, Nov 20,2014 @ AM

According O’Toole, Virginia Commonwealth University Professor of Economics, “Conditions in the labor market have improved in the first 10 months of 2014. In the first 9 months of 2014, private payroll employment improved by an average of 220,000 per month, up from 190,000 jobs per month in the same period in 2012 and 2013”. This created a more competitive environment for the labor market and allowed employees to have more confidence in jumping from job to another, creating recruiting challenges for employers.
