Handling the shift in the recruitment industry: the impact of the global talent crisis

Handling the shift in the recruitment industry: the impact of the global talent crisis

Healthcare organisations have experienced a seismic shift in the way they work over the last two years; a global pandemic, and the infamous Great Resignation. Much has been written about the impact that the changing workplace will have on businesses and candidates – but one group that is all too often overlooked is those who work in talent acquisition.

That’s why specialist talent acquisition software provider Tribepad commissioned an independent research survey of more than 500 talent acquisition professionals to discover how they’re handling the shift in the recruitment industry.

This study shows the impact that the global talent crisis is having on those tasked with filling roles in an already stretched market where vacancies have reached record highs with not enough candidates to fill them.

With a shocking majority of the 500+ recruitment professionals surveyed struggling to cope with stress levels, 39% admitted to having stressful days, and just a mere 6% of those questioned said that their work-life is currently manageable.

“Our survey reveals the impact that the talent crisis is taking on those working on the frontlines of recruitment. Burnout, a lack of recognition, and mounting pressures are placing a toll on those on the frontline. Companies need to invest in their HR teams, providing them with the support and tools they need to meet the exceptional demands that are currently being placed upon them.”

Not only is the workload of recruiters taking its toll with the changing job landscape,
Respondents also admitted staffing issues within their own teams (25%) was one of the biggest causes of work-related stress. Followed by pressure to recruit the right people (12%), tight deadlines (10%), and poor technology to support their roles (5%).

Tribepad gives power back to the people finders with its industry-leading talent acquisition platform making it easier for recruiters to find the right people, fast.  To read the full State of the Recruitment Sector report click here –
