Time To Fill – The Key Ingredients
At RWA Technology People we’ve noticed a trend. Over the past few years, the time that it takes to fill a job vacancy has significantly slowed. The cynical among you might think we are highlighting this because we want our clients to make quicker decisions. Correct, we do, but we aren’t alone in noticing this trend. A report by Dice Holdings Inc. (one of the largest job board providers in the US) recently highlighted that the average ‘time-to-fill’ rate is now 27.8 days, 10 days more than it was in 2009.
So rather than just tell you this information and leave you to figure out how it might affect your business, we have scoured the web to find out why time-to-fill has increased, the impact it has on attracting talent, and most importantly, what you can do to ensure your business continues to successfully hire the best talent.
