2015 RMG Recruitment Insider Survey (Q1) is launched
RMG Recruitment Insider Survey is a quarterly based project to help people know more details about the recruitment performance of different enterprises in Great China region. The data is collected from 10 different types of the company in 10+ cities of 20 industries. All the result we collected come from HR managers, line managers or the person in a much higher level, including hiring headcounts, salary package, salary rise, employing demand, etc. At the end of each quarter, we will publicize the result of the survey.
HR and hiring managers from nearly 600 corporations in Great China area participated in this first-quarter Recruitment Insider Survey and we also put some related questions about their campus recruitment plan to do the analyzing work. According to our first report launched at the beginning of the May, only 8.2% of companies did not have new headcounts, which means a huge demand of the talent is still going on in the job market. Among all of these companies, SOEs are in the leading position. 99.1% of SOEs have new talents introduced to the company in first quarter. But the salary rise is not as powerful as we expected, what 80% of companies offered to the new talents is below the 10% increase of the salary. So the MNC is still ranked at NO.1 in the list of companies who could provide the highest salary-rise.
It is also shown in the Recruitment Insider that Machinery, IT and Legal sectors are on the top list of hot openings in job market. Among all different sectors, positions which have more than 30% salary rise are in IT industry. While the Manufacturing industry is at the lowest level, 22% of them do not have any new hiring positions. Sales, Talent-demands in Marketing and Product departments are on the top 3 list, accounting for 69.5%, 49.8% and 36.3% among the companies which are looking for candidates in these very sectors. The head-hunter is the most important channel to introduce new talents for HRs and hiring managers, nearly 1/3 of manager-level positions are finished by them. An emerging channel for recruitment, the social media, is almost as popular as job fair, ranked as the second most popular method of talent-hunting.
RMG Selection will continue to focus on the changing circumstance of Chinese hiring-needs in the job market in the following Recruitment Insider surveys. As the CEO and the founder of RMG Selection, Robert Parkinson said: “The survey is a stage to present different details of recruitment in various industries, HRs and Hiring managers. This survey will show people the hottest hiring trends and changes in first quarter and we hope that this could help job seekers and employers figure out their own suitable positions and targets.”
