2016 Talent Attraction Study

Talent professionals know the allure of the exceptional hire, whose impressive resume, career path or charisma seem to guarantee high performance. But how can you attract more of these top performers and identify them early on in the recruiting process?

  • 92% of top performers search for job opportunities
  • Visiting an online job site is the #1 job search activity for top performers hired
