If you have not been recruiting lately, then you may not have noticed that it is an ‘employers’ market right now. Our clients are receiving great quality applicants but salary expectations remain high for top talent. However, a remuneration specialist was telling me that the trend in remuneration is flat. We are seeing below 3% growth in wages for the first time since the GFC. The result is people are staying in jobs longer, as organisations particularly in the resources sector continue to shed staff.
Just because there is more talent in the market does not mean you can take shortcuts in your recruitment process. You still need to dig deep to get gold. I am a minimum 3 interview advocate, read my blog in this newsletter to find out why.
