Challenges in Recruitment

Failure to attract talented candidates
In this candidate-driven market where candidates are approached by multiple recruiters it becomes very difficult for recruiters to attract talented candidates. The top candidate that you have been trying to pitch might not be around when you finally decide to extend the offer after several weeks of interviews. Delay in the hiring process is killing the recruitment process, thereby making you lose out on top talent. Reducing time-to-hire also becomes a very difficult ask as you are juggling with multiple candidates at the same time and the follow-up interviews take a lot of time to set up.
Lack of understanding between the recruiters and hiring manager
Lack of communication and understanding between recruiters and hiring managers can cause lot of problems in the recruiting process, including inability to identify the right skill sets in the prospective candidates or deciding on the best channels for sourcing the right talent.
Retaining Millennials in the workforce for a longer period of time
Millennials are starting to dominate the work sphere as the baby boomers start to retire. The peculiar thing about millennials is that they love technology and tend to favor their personal needs more than that of the organization they work for. They long for open communication & regular feedback. The challenge for the recruiters is that these Millennials have the tendency to do job hopping that increases their workload as they have to search for candidates for the same positions more frequently.
Inability in using data effectively
Most of the recruiters today are well-versed in using technology tools to their advantage, but they do not have the ability to effectively use data. It is of paramount importance for recruiters to be able to employ the data to make better recruitment decisions and enhance their processes. But that is hardly happening.
Difficulty in balancing the speed of hire with quality of hire
