It's becoming harder to find appropriate candidates

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 9:00am Tuesday 28 September 2010    Print Article

The latest RCSA Quarterly Business Manager Survey (Apr - Jun 2010) focused on a number of on-hire and contract employment questions. The survey notes that both business confidence and expectations of growth have eased since April. Growth has dropped from its historic high 1 point to 72.5 while members expect next quarter’s business volumes to drop to 7.9% compared with last round's level of 8.9%.





Another interesting point is the number of applicants for positions continues to drop, it is becoming harder to find appropriate candidates, there is a small decline in the level of skills available and a drop in appropriate attitudes. 





Nearly all respondent believe clients choose on-hired services to absorb demand peaks, 89% to cover short term employee leave and 70% to select potential hires.
