Prediction: Normal Hiring by July-Sept

The surprisingly optimistic results from a TalentDrive survey affirm An amazing 46 percent of companies surveyed are not in a hiring freeze. The “Time to Upgrade Your B Talent to the A Talent” survey, conducted in January, reveals that 68 percent of participants anticipate normal hiring to return by Q3 of this year.

However, when asked if new technology was being employed to assist with sourcing, 66 percent responded no.

More than 8,000 F1000 companies, staffing firms and recruiters were questioned. The survey found these additional key points:

>> 66 percent feel they are prepared with the appropriate infrastructure to upgrade the B Talent to the A Talent; and
>> 66 percent are not employing new technology to help assist with sourcing.

The results of this release show a surprising resistance to the weakened economy by F1000 firms, with almost half maintaining the ability to hire. Although those firms are continuing to hire, they are not considering technology solutions to help cope with increased workloads created by cutbacks and the increased number of applicants.
