In a recent quick poll of recruiting staff, we found that more than half of recruiting organizations respond effectively to changes in business conditions. So, Recruiting organizations are moderately agile. The story is different, though, when you look at Recruiting’s influence on change. Less than one-third of recruiters think that recruiting plays an influential role in setting corporate strategy, influences decisions made by business leaders, or influences hiring managers’ talent decisions. Proactively shaping – and not just reacting to changes in – talent and business strategy is where most organizations have the most room for improvement and where we see the best ones headed.
