What Keeps Recruiting Leaders Up at Night

what keeps leaders and recruiters up at nightLast week, at the Spring ERE Recruiting Conference, our CEO Ron Mester unveiled some of the findings of the State of Recruiting Survey conducted recently by ERE Media. One of the survey questions discussed was “What keeps you up at night?” The results, displayed in the graphic at right, aren’t surprising.

Candidate/skills availability is the top concern for recruiters and leaders who participated. The second-most important concern for both groups is recruiting tools/processes. One interesting observation shared is where leaders and recruiters differ. For example, workload is a concern for close to 15 percent of the recruiters surveyed. However, this topic isn’t a concern for recruiting leaders.

After hearing the presentation, I decided to ask some of the recruiting leaders in attendance what issues keep them up at night. See their answers below. (And by the way, this is the first in a many-part series of posts Todd is going to put up on ERE that explore results of the State of Recruiting survey.)
