In such an unprecedented time in the labor market, there’s so much information out there about the latest hiring and retention trends, it can be difficult to cut through all the noise. HCAOA Associate Member CareerPlug has copiled some of the most compelling hiring statistics that every employer should know in 2022 to shed light on what job seekers and employees are looking for and how to hire and retain the right people.
Retention and turnover statistics
The best recruiting strategy is retention, but many employers are dealing with high rates of turnover. Let’s look at how many employees are quitting this year, and some clues on what might be driving this shift.
Paying attention to certain recruiting metrics can help you hire better. Every year, we look at our clients’ metrics to get a pulse on what’s happening in the job market and offer suggestions for hiring process improvements. Here are some important takeaways from CareerPlug’s recent Recruiting Metrics Report.
Attracting the right people
If you have open roles, you may be wondering what job seekers are looking for. Let’s take a look at some of the trends we’ve seen over the last year. This information can give you clues on where your job postings or hiring process might be lacking, so that you can adjust accordingly and attract more applicants.
Candidate experience statistics
Attracting applicants is the first battle. In order to turn those applicants into hires, employers must consider the candidate experience. This is the experience a person has with you from application to offer stage (and all points in between) and it can make or break your ability to hire. Let’s look at some of the most interesting statistics around candidate experience that we found in the last year. (Read even more in our 2021 Candidate Experience Report.)
