INFOGRAPH – FINDING TALENT IN THE MIDDLE EAST & ASIA

An interesting infograph from Discover Digital Arabia on the best channels for companies to find the right talent. At the topline, what we learn is that not many companies find value in placing vacancies on their own corporate websites; as only 45% of applicants heard about a vacancy via the employer’s website. Also, despite the hype & gaining popularity of incorporating social media into marketing a company’s products & services this does not necessarily extend to a company’s recruitment strategy. Adding what happens in specific sectors e.g. hospitality vs. marketing would have been an insightful dimension.

Key takeaway? If you want great talent, first hire a great recruitment agency. Do you agree?
