According to a recent CareerBuilder survey, companies across the globe are looking to revamp their hiring efforts to fill both the temporary and full-time positions in the year 2019. The same survey found that 44% of businesses are looking to hire full-time employees and 51% are planning to hire temporary employees.

Employers, talent, and recruiters alike will be a need to prepared to navigate the following 5 trends:

  1. Talent shortage
    Competition for talent is fierce and set to get fiercer. The US government predicts that the economy will fully recover from the Great Recession by the year 2020 and the labour force will return to full employment. To succeed in this market employers and recruiters will need to evolve their approach. 45% of all the hiring managers surveyed said that they are unable to fill the much-needed positions due to the scarcity of qualified talent.
  1. The rise of AI
    Artificial Intelligence will increasingly influence interviewing and assessment of candidates, not only resulting in better recruitment automation but also making the hiring process smoother, and more streamlined. Of course, these will not replace the human functions of assessing a candidate’s potential, and determining their cultural ‘fit’, but will importantly speed up and thereby shorten the recruitment process.
