Hiring and recruiting are constantly evolving, and keeping up with the latest trends is essential for any company that wants to stay ahead of the curve. So, what can we expect in 2022? Here are a few hiring and recruiting 2022 trends to keep an eye on:
1. Social Media
Recruiters already use social media platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to reach out to potential candidates. In fact, according to a recent study, 92% of recruiters use social media for recruiting purposes. This trend is only going to continue in 2022.
2. War for Talent Will Intensify
The competition for top talent will continue to increase in 2022. Companies will need to get more creative in their recruiting efforts. They may need to offer more competitive salaries and benefits and provide better development opportunities. Also, companies will need to focus on employer branding more than ever before.
3. Prioritizing Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion have become a hot topic in recent years, and this won’t be an exception in 2022. Companies must make a concerted effort to create a diverse and inclusive workforce if they want to attract and retain the best talent.
4. Use of Data in Recruiting
Recruiters are already using data to help them make better hiring decisions. But in 2022, data will play an even bigger role in recruiting. Recruiters will use data to identify potential candidates, assess their skills and qualifications, and track their progress.
5. Use of Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence is already significantly impacting recruiting, and this trend will only continue in 2022. AI-powered chatbots can help screen candidates, while machine learning can be used to identify the best candidates for a particular role. Also, predictive analytics can be used to forecast future hiring needs.
6. The Gig Economy Will Grow
The gig economy has been on the rise in recent years. More people are choosing to work as freelancers or contractors, significantly impacting recruiting. Companies must be prepared to source and manage talent in this new environment. This is how recruiting and hiring will change in 2022.
7. Employee Experience Will Become a Top Priority
The employee experience has been a topic of concern for years. A solution for it should be found in 2022. Firms should focus on creating a positive employee experience from the moment a candidate applies for a job until long after being hired. By doing so, they’ll be able to improve employee retention and engagement. Recruiting efforts should focus on how to make the application process, onboarding process, and overall work experience as positive as possible.
