LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Recruitment is a challenge for organizations across industries. An effective hiring plan is therefore essential, as having a plan that is aligned with corporate goals and visions leads to better performance and employee retention. Analyzing the factors that lead workers to change jobs and turn to competitors, as well as examining employee perception of the organization, can help create a robust and successful hiring strategy.
Infiniti Research was recently approached by a multinational biotechnology product development company to perform an assessment of the current hiring market. The company wanted to identify and assess the best practices followed by employers in the target region, the Bay Area. Infiniti’s assessment team performed a reputation analysis of the client as an employer in the Bay area specific to areas such as salary, perks, facilities, HR policies, and job role. To meet the specific needs of the client, Infiniti’s research analysts held discussions with potential employees, recruitment experts, and HR executives across the business landscape and value chain.
Connecting relevant job listings with job hunters who have the requisite skills can be a challenge on both ends of the process. Firms and recruiters struggle to be seen, and applicants need to filter through a multitude of listings that may or may not be related to their search. Technology giant Google is now stepping into the arena to help facilitate that process.
Rather than compete with existing job search sites, Google is focusing on making it easier for job seekers to find existing listings. Its new job search engine, Google for Jobs, is partnering with LinkedIn, Facebook, Monster, Glassdoor, and other services and will allow users to filter by qualities such as location, duration, and date posted. Its machine learning will also help return results that don’t necessarily match the query’s wording but are nevertheless related, such as similar jobs with different titles. Google reports that its pilot project has already increased job applicants by 18% for participating companies.
