Does Company Size Matter?
After examining communications between 135,000 sourced candidates and recruiters,
researchers found that companies with more than 1,000 employees saw an average response
rate of 45 percent, only 3-percent higher than smaller companies.
Confessions of a Hiring
When 850 hiring managers were
surveyed, 65 percent confessed
to not verifying an applicant's
education, while 56 percent
didn't call a candidate's former
employer and 52 percent didn't
check for a criminal record.
According to a survey of 500 senior-level HR decision makers, only 37 percent reported having diversity hiring
goals, with just 31 percent saying they have "fairness in compensation" as a goal for their organization.
