What has easing restrictions meant for recruitment?
The UK might be starting to get back to normal but what about the recruitment industry?
Before Covid you may have been using paper forms, seeing candidates face to face and taking time to do everything… Fast forward to 2022 when Covid restrictions are lifted, over 93% of recruiters say they will continue to use digital efficiency to grow their agency.
Why recruiters are continuing with digital efficiency
Digital efficiency not only saves recruiters time, but also paper and admin costs. We have noticed a trend with UK agencies looking to continue using technology to improve and automate their recruitment process.
Recent recruitment stats from around the industry show:
- 70% of companies say their recruiting and onboarding is at least half virtual.
- 36% of recruiters say AI would make their jobs better.
- 70% of executives expect to hire more temporary and contract workers this year.
- Growing from 18% in 2017 to 37% of recruiters using it today.
Build more connections between candidates & companies
New online tools that automate recruitment have risen by over 80% in the UK since 2020, and as more recruiters see the benefits to saving time and costs, it should come as no surprise to why these trends are here to stay.
Not only that but new technologies are making it increasingly easier for recruiters to connect with candidates easier and much more efficiently.
