As the talent landscape continues to evolve, organizations need insights to stay ahead in the competitive race for top talent. We surveyed TA leaders to gain their perspectives on the future of talent acquisition. Here are some key findings from our survey, providing you with a glimpse into the latest recruiting trends of 2023.
Predictors of Quality Hires and Hiring Expectations
TA leaders love internal referrals and previous tenure within the organization. They feel they are the best sources of predicting the quality of hire. This doesn’t come as a surprise; cultural fit is a major factor in hiring, and these channels provide the greatest trust. As for future hiring plans, the majority of respondents expect hiring to increase during the third and fourth quarters.
Top Challenges in TA
The survey shed light on the most prevalent challenges faced by TA professionals today. Finding top talent, employee retention, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives and others were among the top issues mentioned.
Pay Transparency and Its Impact
Pay transparency is gaining momentum as a part of talent acquisition. While opinions varied on the scale, half of our respondents affirmed it has made an impact on their work. In most cases, it leads to positive discussions around fair compensation practices.
TA Optimization and Skill Shortages
TA leaders acknowledged the need for continuous improvement in talent acquisition processes. Optimizing recruitment strategies, screening processes, enhancing acquisition skills, addressing skill shortages, and refining onboarding experiences emerged as crucial areas for improvement.
The insights gathered from our survey provide a valuable glimpse into the future of talent acquisition. As organizations strive to attract and retain the best talent, it is essential to stay informed about emerging trends and challenges.
