In the past 12 months, we have seen a vast array of recruitment trends emerge but there are only a few that look set to continue this year i.e. 2018.

Many businesses were clever enough to know how to allocate their recruitment and HR budgets. By doing so they made sure they had the flexibility they needed to react to all their recruitment and retention needs whenever required.
An Increase In Temporary To Permanent Jobs:
2017 served as the record year for temporary to permanent jobs in the staffing world. A large number of companies took ended up hiring employees on a permanent basis that were initially hired on a temporary basis. This trend has allowed companies to test out a candidate before making a permanent decision and this trend is guaranteed to continue in 2018.
Focus On Employee’s Wellbeing In The Office:
The best way to retain employees is to make sure their experience in the office is improved. In this day and age, recruitment is becoming more and more competitive which has resulted in lesser and lesser qualified candidates. Employers find it hard to come across a good employee and keeping that employee is becoming hard. It is wise for employers to make sure that their employee’s experience is a positive one. If the employee has a good time in the workplace and doesn’t feel stressed or pressured, then there is a big chance that the employee will stay with you. According to a survey, nearly 80 percent of employees believe that employers should provide a better work environment to employees to make sure they stay with them.
The year has just started and we don’t know how many more new trends the tear will see but these top 3 trends are already taking the business world by storm and it is strongly suggested that both employers and employees take a note of following these trends to make sure both continue to excel in the business world.
