There’s no denying that many industries currently find themselves in a challenging market. Companies of all sizes are finding it difficult to establish a healthy pipeline of new recruits for their customers while retaining their existing candidates.
Work4 decided to take the conversation directly to hourly applicants with a survey sent to over 11,000 hourly candidate applicants covering a wide variety of topics. We gathered insights about everything from what candidates find most attractive in a job listing and how COVID-19 has affected their job hunt, to job searching behaviors and what factors rank improve job satisfaction.
The results of this survey show clear data for each of the questions presented to the candidates. We will be presenting all of our findings as well as key takeaways for agencies to consider in our upcoming Examining Hourly Candidate Viewpoints in Today’s Hiring Market webinar. You can register to attend the webinar here, but as a sneak peek, read on for the top 4 things we learned about hourly candidates in our recent survey.
COVID-19’s Impact on The Hourly Candidate Market
We asked our respondents to weigh in on how the pandemic has affected their job search in both methods and ease. We found that 50% of our respondents felt that the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has made their job search more difficult. Check in to the webinar to see what other details we uncovered.
