The Changing Face Of Recruitment

Recruitment has changed massively over the last 100 years or so.  From simple billboard posters to social media recruitment.  The question is where next?

Recruitment Process Changes

Below you can see some typical posters used to recruit people during WW1.  The typical message was to prey on the conscience of people to get them to sign up.  Fortunately recruitment has changed over the years to a less intimidating form or has it?

Undoubtably recruitment has changed, not just in format but also in the way companies, organisations and businesses try to interact with potential candidates.  It seems the feeling of intimidation has shifted from candidates to business though.

With so many routes to market it is difficult to see how businesses could fail to recruit the staff they need.  But yet there are thousands of job vacancies, possibly millions of job vacancies placed with recruitment consultants every year?  Why is this?

It comes down to a number of issues that face employers.  Number 1 is that they don’t know where to go to put together a structured campaign to recruit the best staff and they are concerned that the cost of putting together such a campaign without specialist help is too high.

It’s easier for businesses to just pass the problem to a recruitment consultancy and wait for them to deliver the perfect candidate.

Recruitment consultants work, really they do, but they also cost money, a lot of money.  This is why we put together a simple cost-effective recruiting system that is designed to put the employer back in control.
