The key point in this piece is around the misalignment of talent strategy with business strategy, but bringing it down a level provides interesting stats in relation to a surprisingly low (20%) of EMEA respondents using mobile technology tools for recruitment. Interesting to reflect on why recruitment holds the lowest usage rates in this global study. Reflective of confidence to invest in this area?
It is not only the business that talent acquisition is misaligned with, but candidate realities too. In a digital and mobile-first world, where candidates browse potential jobs and apply via mobile devices, just 20 percent of respondents in EMEA use mobile technology tools for recruitment – the lowest usage rates in the global study.
