If you’re a business owner or a hiring manager and you only hire when your company has an immediate opening, you’re probably missing out on star candidates.
This is because most job candidates on the market today are constantly looking at new job opportunities – even if they’re happy in their current roles. In fact, 72% of adults keep track of other open jobs in the market, regardless of their current status, and 58% of adults research jobs at least monthly.
Given the high percentage of potential employees looking constantly keeping an eye on jobs, your company should never stop hiring, even if this means simply keeping a handful of jobs open on your career site to build a pipeline of candidates for down the road. And if the right candidate comes along, you might even want to jump at the opportunity to hire them earlier than anticipated, as the best candidates are off the market in 10 days – and could potentially end up working for your competition.
In this eBook, we’ve outlined several reasons you should always be hiring including: avoiding reactive hiring, showcasing your employment brand, capturing passive candidates, building your network, and making your overall hiring process more efficient.
