Over the past few weeks we’ve been speaking to Recruiters and HR professionals about the “State of the recruiting/HR landscape,” and we all agree that, “the market has not been this slow for quite some time.”
With some economic uncertainty, corporate shortfalls and some of Canada’s leading organizations posting bad earnings and market positions, more companies are holding off hiring and instead, they are assessing their people and direction through the back half of Q1.
For the Job Seeker, it means the market is going to need another month to gain back some of the momentum we’ve lost.
For the employer, the current talent pool is very hungry and any opportunities that you have will spread like wildfire. It also means that the “passive” candidate has gone back into hiding and will not start kicking tires again until market activity is healthy.
If you looking to hire, or you are, a Recruiting/HR professional, let Granite help, we RECRUIT RECRUITERS AND HR PROFESSIONALS.
