In November I wrote about Linkedin’s 2016 Global Recruiting Trends Report(you can re-read it here) and took them to task about their methodology. Turns out they did a bit of a miscalculation and corrected data that looked askew. Good on them. As I looked at a relatively new infographic about their survey data, I was again intrigued by some of their findings. In a good way.
The infographic, found in Linkedin’s Talent Blog, 4 Recruiting Trends to Watch in 2016, boils the report down to 4 key points – and they are good ones:
- Quality of Hire is the magic metric
- Employers are finding quality hires faster through professional networks
- Employer branding is bouncing back as a top priority
- Employee retention is growing as a top employer priority
