Talent shortages have a real business impact. For example, median time to fill critical roles increased by 30 business days between 2010 and 2017. This slowdown can stifle productivity, innovation and business growth.

    Needs-driven sourcing

    When competing for digital talent, recruiters make several common mistakes. They promote their most appealing brand attributes, which aren't unique enough. They focus on their sales pitch instead of the candidate's career goals. And they prioritize preferred skills and experience instead of looking for what's truly needed. In addition, organizations often assume that more pay translates into more quality hires, underestimating other value drivers.

    A market-centric view

    Adopting a market-driven sourcing approach enables organizations to compete effectively for talent with digital skills. Recruiters anticipate organizational needs and the talent market, instead of simply acting as a hiring service. This flexible, yet evidence-based approach to recruiting can save the organization up to $1.8 million per 1,000 vacancies.

    Compared to recruiters who follow the defined needs of the organization, recruiters who deploy market-driven sourcing hire 22% more employees per year.
