The Mistakes You’re Making in Talent Acquisition


The impact of Brexit and the skills shortage continue to affect recruitment success but for some businesses there may be a hint of self-sabotage.

Making snap decisions based on the interview

New research from Totaljobs found that one in five hiring managers make a decision on a candidate within one minute of meeting them at an interview, disregarding all other evidence in the hiring process. A further 40% decide within the first 15 minutes and only one third wait until after the interview. For companies struggling to retain employees this approach will only perpetuate your problems.
