Trump stalls skilled worker relocation
The Trump administration has had an impact on the global view of relocating workers, data from Jobscience’s February survey of recruiters has shown.
The staffing software company, which runs monthly worldwide surveys to find out what recruiters think will impact the search for talent in 2017, found that February sentiment seems to have been more negative than data gathered in January.
There was a 50% drop in recruiters who felt Trump would make recruiting easier from beginning of the year and a 21.5% increase in recruiters who feel that it will be harder to internationally relocated skilled workers.
Jobscience said the executive order on immigrations seems to have impacted this measure.
There was, however, a 2.5% decrease in the fear that we will run out of skilled labour to meet demand requirements.
Jobscience said there seems to less concern about running out of skilled labour and the perception that the gig economy will change the world of recruiters, while changes in the view of hiring demand and the supply of labour remain in the margin of error for the survey and do not indicate a change in the market sentiment.
There was also an 11.7% decrease in concerns that the gig economy will change how we recruit in 2017 and an 1.1% decrease in recruiters who feel more contractors will be hired in 2017.
