Recruiters STILL Considered to Provide the Best Candidates

 

MCI Consultants recently announced the results of its 2013 SA HR Recruitment Trend Survey, the second consecutive year its been run and which saw the participation of 1012 HR professionals from across the country. “The results of this survey clearly indicate that HR departments and professionals of corporate SA have become extremely proactive and are managing a bulk of their recruitment internally. Interestingly though, there was an increase of 6% in the number of corporates utilising agencies as their first fort of call. This year’s results also showed a remarkable increase of 5% in the number of organisations utilising Social Media to recruit which aligns with the growing global trend.”

 

Some of the major highlights from the 2013 survey were as follows:

  • 87% of organisations attempt to source and place candidates internally before approaching recruitment agencies;
  • 74,3% have a careers section on their websites;
  • 68% use job portals to advertise vacancies, as opposed to 65% using print media;
  • 61% have an employee candidate referral awards program in place;
  • 58% use social media to recruit candidates, up from 53%; with LinkedIn being by far the most successful one utilised;
  • 43,6% primarily make use of recruitment agencies to satisfy their requirements;
  • 43% use a recruitment management system; and,
  • 40% of respondents have between one and five recruitment agencies on their preferred supplier lists

 

Overall, recruitment agencies and internal referrals gave the best quality candidates; whilst print media gave the worst, observations that were identical to those made last year.
