HR expert praises online recruitment
An expert from the human resources (HR) sector has given her opinion about why she believes online recruitment will be the future of hiring for many firms.
Donna Miller, the European HR manager at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, told Personnel Today that there will be a shift in the "balance of power" between print and online recruitment over the next year.
She thinks that many employers have got into the habit of using newspapers for recruitment, an attitude which will need to change.
Speaking about its benefits, Ms Miller said: "Online advertising is trackable, gives you good understanding of your return on investment and allows you to score some brownie points with finance."
She also predicts that recruitment budgets will be cut for many companies in 2009. Therefore the flat-fee services offered by some online recruitment agencies may be even more helpful.
Last week, Webrecruit advised companies that flat-fee recruitment can reduce their cost per hire, Online Recruitment reported.
