Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) August 15, 2013 - Last year when Bill O’Malley opened the doors of his executive search firm, Connector Team Recruiting, the recruiting efforts of many companies were still sluggish despite a rebounding economy. Today, O’Malley notes business leaders are worried about ramping up hiring as the marketplace shifts to a candidate-driven status. Through Connector Team Recruiting, an affiliate of MRINetwork®, one of the largest executive search and recruitment organization in the world, O’Malley is helping companies that have a recruiting plan in place, in advance of their competition, gain a distinct opportunity to lead the pack.
“When companies wait to develop a plan until hiring freezes are lifted or until budgets are increased, it’s too late to gain a competitive advantage,” says O’Malley. “During economic recoveries, organizations that quickly react, historically pick up market share from competitors who are not quite as agile.”
The key is to ramp up recruiting efforts at the right time. “If you start actively recruiting too early, you’ll leave candidates waiting too long before you can take action,” says O’Malley. “If you start too late, you miss out on the forward-looking talent who are among the first to be willing to assume the risk of a new position at a new organization.”
O’Malley suggests that a recruiting plan devised after a prolonged economic downturn include the following key elements:
"Until recently mobility within the workforce was the lowest it had been in 60 years,” says O’Malley. “But now more people are willing and able to move to get a great job. Even employers who have been steadily hiring have gotten used to restricting their searches. Now most of them are able to ignore the geographic limitations of the past few years."
