Confidence in the private sector is at its highest for 6 years and growth has returned. This is very welcome news for everyone but what does it mean
Over the last 7 years headhunting has been in decline year on year as businesses froze their recruitment budgets and certainly if businesses were recruiting they would look at doing it on a shoestring as opposed to using perceived “high cost” headhunters. So those who did recruit probably did not recruit the top performers in their industry who, more than ever, have been highly coveted in the tough economic period that we have sustained. And those that did use headhunters or other methods to try and attract the top
talent probably struggled as the top performers or indeed anyone with a stable work environment wanted to stay where they were rather than take the risk of moving and it not working out.
2014 confidence is high and businesses now need to start looking at recruiting the top talent and in order to do this they should turn to headhunting as a process. Coupled with this the people are now ready to start having their heads turned by fresh opportunities. Which all means that headhunters can look forward to firstly more work and secondly an easier task than has been over the last 7 years. Naturally everyone at Eagle Headhunters is delighted. Happy New Year!
