As we look back at 2019 and buckle up for 2020, there’s one thing we can all agree on: Recruiting is on fire. And there’s proof too: LinkedIn data shows demand for recruiting professionals has jumped by 63% since 2016.
That’s because finding and engaging talent has only gotten harder. With low unemployment rates, talent professionals are essential for winning over candidates. But not just any candidates — you’re being tasked with hiring people with the right soft skills as well as those that can bring diverse perspectives.
And, with competition for talent heating up, you’re also working hard to create cultures that people want to be a part of, whether that means taking steps to be more inclusive, allowing flexible work options, or helping employees continue to learn and develop their skills.
With that said, we weren’t surprised to see that the most popular articles on the Talent Blog in 2019 revolved around topics like hiring for diversity, assessing soft-skills, and engaging candidates and employees. It’s always fun to see which articles you found the most useful or inspiring! Here are the top 10 for the year:
