Are things really looking up for organisations who are hiring?
Personnel Today in a recent article, reports that organisations are optimistic about hiring for the first time in 8 years.
"UK employers are the most optimistic they have been in eight years about hiring, according to the quarterly Labour Market Outlook from the CIPD and Adecco.
The net employment intentions balance, which measures the difference between the proportion of employers expecting to add jobs and those planning to cut them, was positive across all sectors, it found.
It rose sharply to +27 for the second quarter of 2021, compared with +11 in the first quarter of the year. It was strongest in the private sector and the voluntary sector, at +28, while the public sector showed a positive intention of +22."
If this is the case, how can we ensure our assessment processes are up to scratch to meet the new wave of recruitment? and also ensure a great candidate experience?
