香港僱主如何趕走人才

READ IN ENGLISH 證據明確顯示,企業不容易吸引和留住頂尖人才,而長時間及複雜的招聘流程會流失這批精英。 招聘公司Robert Half委託進行的獨立研究分析500名香港求職者的回應,發現超過十分之七(72%)的應徵者因為首選僱主遲遲未有回覆,因而會退而求其次。 儘管72%的求職者表示如果招聘流程花太長時間,他們將對職位失去興趣,但該研究卻發現招聘經理往往需時很久才回覆求職者。逾半(54%)的應徵者面試後要等一個月以上才收到回覆,而27%更要等超過六星期,21%甚至等超過兩個月,只有6%當天便獲得回覆。 這與應徵者對招聘流程的期望截然相反。大多數(88%)應徵者認為,由最初遞交申請到收到最後回覆,等一個月是合理時間,只有12%認為等一個月以上可以接受。 Robert Half香港區董事總經理Adam Johnston於一份新聞稿中表示:「香港公司正在激烈爭奪擁有合適技能和才華的精英。為推動業務發展,若因招聘流程過長而錯失有潛力的員工,這個代價對僱主實在太大。」 「優秀求職者知道他們有價有市,因此很多香港求職者由於等太久而放棄夢寐以求的職位,情況令人關注。」 Johnston續指:「在招聘流程中篩選應徵者可能非常耗時。但如果招聘經理無法使招聘流程迎合現今應徵者的期望,在市場上失去最優秀人才的風險將會增加。」 「若要根據今天應徵者的期望取得適當平衡,企業需要從最初刊登招聘廣告,到最終落實聘用,深入檢討並簡化整個面試流程。」 延伸閱讀:3大招聘必勝法

過半數年輕一代質疑企業商業道德

READ IN ENGLISH 正當千禧一代和Z世代開始更積極推動社會轉變,他們較認同積極為社會帶來正面影響的公司。至於只著眼於賺錢的公司,則不再是後生一輩的首要考慮。 德勤的一項調查訪問了來自36個國家的10,455名千禧一代,以及六個國家1,850名剛踏入職場的Z世代。調查發現,僅48%的受訪者認為企業有商業道德,較去年下跌了65%。更多人開始懷疑企業動機是否如此「大公無私」,當中只有47%認為企業領袖致力為社會出一分力,比上年下跌62%。 年輕一代現時更相信重視創造職位、創新、改善員工生活和事業、為社會和環保帶來正面影響的公司。 結果,忠誠度跌至兩年前的水平。43%的千禧一代認為自己會在兩年內離職,只有28%期望在同一公司工作五年以上。這是因為有62%的人視零工經濟為全職以外的可行選擇。如果企業想抓緊千禧一代人才,便要多做一點,考慮其他工作元素,例如多元化、包容性及工作彈性,以迎合千禧一代及Z世代的需求。 德勤全球行政總裁Punit Renjen道:「今年的調查結果反映出,過去一年的急速社會、科技及地理政治變革,影響了千禧一代和Z世代對企業的看法,亦向全球領袖發出警號。」
