Fight that December slowdown


Fight that Dec slowdown

Why do Employers slow down their hiring process heading towards Dec?
Would budgets, paying holiday pay or a time sheet issue, overcome these objections? Easy to overcome by adding it into the employee’s contract?

Historically trends show that employees slow down their hiring leading up to close of year. Why wouldn’t you want to counteract this and be ahead and ready by the 2nd Jan?

Hiring in December will keep you ahead of your competitors, including reaching out to those passive candidates who may not be thinking of a career move but are more reachable allowing you to pick from the best talent.

With many companies closing for the Xmas break its easier for candidates to take time off for interviews and be more available.
By hiring in Dec you receive the maximum value from new starters for a full business year. Starters in December get a chance to climatise better into a company culture feeling more welcomed with the extra Christmas spirit floating around. Inductions would have been completed enabling the candidate to feel more settled and better prepared to start in January. Employers receive the maximum value from their new starters for a full business year.
