One thing that remains constant about recruitment is that in many business areas there is often less talent to find than there are jobs available. As economies improve and competition intensifies the problem is magnified and it is a problem that recruiters are now experiencing in multiple markets globally.
In the latest episode of the Recruiting Future Podcast I interviewed Clare Lewis of global risk advisor and insurance broker Willis. In the interview Clare talks about the innovative approaches they are taking to deal with the skill shortages in their industry. These involve such things as local outreach initiatives to enhance both the employer brand of company and industry, talent management strategies, recruitment process improvement and a sharp focus on the candidate experience.
