4 major talent trends you should know:


Almost everyone is open to your job opportunities

A large percentage global professionals said they are interested in hearing about new job opportunities.


But people don’t know much about your company or jobs.

While most global recruiting leaders say employer brand is a top priority, candidates say their biggest obstacle when changing jobs is not knowing enough about your company and roles.


Once you have the right message, share it in the right places.

Most are already familiar with a company by the time they first hear about a job there. The most common way people first discover and finally land their new job is through a referral from someone they know.


People don’t see themselves at one company for long.

Many employees see themselves at their current company for less than 2 years. People who want to stay for 3+ years see their work as a calling, fitting into a larger purpose that ties with their personal values.
