If you ask any recruiter, what are some of the recruiting challenges you face in today’s labor market?
Let’s see if you face these same challenges:
- Not having enough quality candidates in your talent pool
- Outdated ATS databases
- Lack of up-to-date candidate contact information
- Hiring fast to beat competitors
- Challenges associated with developing long-term strategic workforce plans
Today’s competitive talent acquisition market
In an ideal market, recruiters already face many challenges and roadblocks, such as searching through tons of applications and diving deep into finding one candidate to fill a job requisition. In today’s market, with more job openings than qualified candidates, recruiters are faced with even more difficulties, with few quality candidates and/or candidates that simply aren’t interested. In the business world, when time is money, these challenges can weigh you down and ultimately lead to spending more money and labor on recruiting. But it doesn’t have to stay this way.
As recruiters, it is highly likely that you have come across this scenario:
You saw an impressive candidate profile and found their background, experiences, and skills match the job requirements of your job requisition. You can’t help but send them a message to introduce yourself and share the exciting opportunity you have.
Two days later, the candidate responded: “Thank you for reaching out to me. I am happy with where I am right now.” or “Thank you for your message, but I accepted another offer a day ago.”
With today’s tight labor market, you’re almost gripping all of your energy in a qualified candidate and hope that at least they are open to a conversation, but in the end, they simply are not interested.
This is how you can overcome this challenge. Consider the market.
As part of the A.C.T.I.V.E acronym, considering the market is vital in your outbound recruiting process.
EZ Insights help support you in this aspect. It enables you to develop strategic workforce plans and make informed decisions with industry-wide and competitor-specific benchmarking data and talent insights. EZ Insights collects information from over 45 open web platforms to provide insights in two larger areas:
Company insights for competitive research and analysis
Candidate insights for talent market research (employee movement rate, market value, and more).
With this easily accessible information, talent acquisition leaders, recruiters, and company executives are empowered to develop and execute data-driven insights that position their organization competitively, support their growth plans and allow them to recruit and manage talent more strategically.
Now, imagine this scenario:
Instead of going outside your ATS to look for new candidates, you’re considering finding past applicants in your current ATS. However, the candidate’s information is not up-to-date, and you are looking at a resume written three years ago. You then click your other browser and start hunting for this candidate, hence spending more time to discover newer work experiences of this candidate.
You’re targeting the talent, but you can’t seem to find updated information about them. You tried screening past applicants in your existing ATS but just can’t seem to find a match for your job requisition because of the lack of updated information.
