Mention on Human Resource Executive Online
When it comes to recruiters’ effectiveness in filling open positions with talented employees, hiring managers believe there’s room for improvement — and so do recruiters, according to the 2014 State of Recruiting survey by New York-based ERE Media. According to the survey, recruiters tend to give themselves a performance grade of B, while hiring managers tend to give them only a C-plus.
The findings came as no surprise to Elaine Orler, president and founder of Talent Function Group, a recruitment-consulting firm in San Diego. Many recruiters aren’t being proactive enough in finding out what hiring managers truly need, she says.
