Engaging Active and Passive Job Seekers: Life Sciences
The Kelly Global Workforce Index (KGWI) is an annual global survey revealing opinions about work and the workplace. Almost 230,000 people across the Americas, EMEA and APAC regions responded to the 2014 survey.
The topics covered in the 2014 KGWI survey include:
- Engaging active and passive job seekers
- Career development
- The candidate experience from hiring to onboarding
- Worker preferences and workplace agility
A total of 31 countries participated in the survey, utilising 20 different languages. Results span workplace generations, as well as key industries and occupations.
This first instalment, on the topic, Engaging Active and Passive Job Seekers, examines the nature of the contemporary job search process from a candidate’s perspective across the Life Sciences sector.
It looks at the state of employee engagement with work, following a period where many have been unsettled by industry restructuring and job cutbacks.
It also identifies the way that employees are conversing over jobs and work and the role that online and social media play in these discussions.
The opening up of new communications platforms has particular relevance for employers who want to identify not only active job seekers, but passive or ‘hidden’ job seekers.
