The State of Recruitment Marketing in 2024 report is an annual in-depth look at trends, challenges, future priorities, and progress at leading organizations across the globe.

Highlighting the impact of technology and data-driven strategies on recruitment and retention efforts, the report provides insights into how organizations can adapt to the evolving hiring landscape in 2024.

Key findings include:

  • The pipeline is the priority: 48% of organizations report that building a talent pipeline is their top priority for 2024, but 68% find it challenging to reach the right target audience.
  • Manual processes, lack of data hinder progress: 47% cite manual systems and processes as their top challenge when connecting with talent, and only a mere 22% describe their accessibility to data at the earliest stages of talent engagement as “excellent.”
  • Assessments drive higher quality hires: 73% of C-level executives cite higher quality hires as a benefit of implementing talent assessments. Still, 45% of organizations believe that assessments create friction in the hiring process.
  • Retention requires a multifaceted approach: Employee referral programs are prevalent, with 86% of organizations having one. Internal mobility also directly impacts retention, and 70% use an internal career site to communicate open positions to existing employees.
