Digital innovation for recruiting is going to be the new normal, 55% of respondents in a global survey by KellyOCG said.
The survey found that 40% of employers worldwide reported greater difficulty in hiring the right people which is the highest level in the last 10 years. Hiring for in-demand skills is the most critical challenge according to 42% of the employers surveyed.
The survey of 522 companies across the globe also said talent shortage has hit the highest level in a decade. Francis Padamadan, country director, KellyOCG India, said, "While employers are grappling with talent shortage, there are more passive job seekers than ever before. This situation is driving organisations to adopt digital processes. Interestingly, while many organisations are in the early stages of recruiting automation, some are already on the cutting edge.
