The UK labour market continues to be both fragile and unpredictable and there’s absolutely no doubt that 2012 is going to be yet another challenging year. Against this background, many organisations are responding by adapting and re-aligning talent strategies, developing more in-house talent, continuing to recruit key hires and lastly increasing their focus on employee retention.
In line with the above trends, the digital age has revolutionised the concept of recruitment advertising, offering a raft of new ways for companies to connect with potential employees, who in turn can interact with advertising in a variety of new ways. The bottom line is that with more jobseekers looking for employment through non-traditional channels, we need to think imaginatively on behalf of our clients about how to extend their networking efforts beyond the usual suspects, stand out from the crowd and reach that talent. Across the board our focus has to be on creating measurable recruitment solutions that deliver an outstanding return on investment – whether that be through print publications, digital platforms or social media.
At MKH, we have access to the latest recruitment news and statistics and always aim to keep our clients up-to-date with industry changes, competitor activity, new entrants and media opportunities.
