Although I’ve been in the recruitment business for longer than most of our clients have been on this planet – a full 43+ years!!!! – I have tended to lope in the background as I’m more of a numbers guy than your average person-facing archetypical Recruitment bod!
That is … until today , as I have come across some impressive numbers, relevant to all recruiters and senior management professionals. These figures taken from the Recruitment Industry between June 2015 and December 2015 were so illuminating that I would really like to share these with you. Rather than bore you will pages of figures I thought a short-form quiz-type questionnaire that can be accessed using the link at the end of this blog would be more informative.
Please indulge me on this for a moment as the point of making this into a quiz is that you will be able to gauge the reality of your company’s recruitment position against the National Average which has been collated by our professional body, REC, from literally thousands of inputs across the country to see how you compare with what’s going on recruitment-wise nationwide!
This is an information-only type quiz which we don’t need you to return to us with their answers. However, the answer to the 10 questions are contained in the final line of the attachment in small type so you can collate your score quickly!
For what it’s worth, marking the correct answer as 3 with the next closest at 2 and the third at 1, I reckon that anything above 24 out of a possible 30 shows that your Company is there or thereabouts recruitment-wise. Any figure below that could indicate that you could be seriously bucking nationwide trends!
Whatever the result, please don’t take it too seriously BUT I hope you find it as illuminating as all of us did!
