How Agile Organisations Succeed in Candidate Short Markets

Even in tight labour markets, organisations have usually been able to access the skills they need through traditional hiring strategies. Most businesses and recruiters have talent pools they return to time and time again when looking for candidates.

2021 was the year when many of those talent pools ran dry. Pent-up demand caused by pandemic lockdowns and the voracious consumer appetite for digital interactions has left companies needing to grow their teams and expand their skills base — fast. In this kind of market, talented candidates often find themselves juggling several offers, while employees are voluntarily quitting their positions in record numbers in a phenomenon dubbed “The Great Resignation”.

This eBook is part of Page Resourcing’s drive to help organisations reimagine the way they think about skills and the places they look for talent. It highlights three talent acquisition & development strategies that can help companies thrive in candidate-short markets:

  • Internal mobility — What if the talent you need is just down the corridor?
  • Upskilling/reskilling — What are you doing to unlock the potential in your existing workforce?
  • Hiring for potential — Are you taking enough chances on imperfect candidates who have the capacity and determination to learn on the job?

But don’t just take our word for it! As well as expert advice from Page Resourcing’s global team of consultants, this eBook is packed with insights from executives, managers and recruiters at some of the world’s largest and most innovative companies, from financial services multinationals to renewable energy giants.
