Historically, the balance of power between employers and candidates has favored employers. Candidates had few sources of information about open positions, corporate culture or company vision, let alone compensation and benefits.
Globally, the talent market is constantly changing. Candidates today report a dramatic increase in the amount of information they have about a company and a position at early stages of the job search process. In the last year alone, candidates report significant increases in the amount and types of information they have prior to beginning the application process.
The report helps to address how employers can leverage global candidate preferences and perceptions to better attract, engage and retain talent.
