Top Candidate Sources – 2014 Report
The aim of our 2014 Top Candidate Sources report is to understand which candidate sourcing channels are most effective at reaching out to potential applicants and more importantly, which ones deliver the candidates that companies want to hire.
This study was conducted throughout 2013 across 30 companies in a wide range of sectors including construction, retail, energy, education, transportation, hospitality, IT and ﬁnance. We examined 3.9 million job applications which resulted in 14,212 people being hired across Asia Paciﬁc and the Middle East. The jobs advertised varied from customer service staff to mid-level management and senior executives. We analysed which sourcing channels persuaded candidates to apply for jobs,and then looked at which channels actually produced the resulting hires. The results are detailed in this report.
