Engaging Active and Passive Job Seekers: Natural Resources
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 Natural Resources 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 one of the challenges faced by employers in seeking to identify outstanding talent at a time when many employees may not be actively pursuing a change of job.
These hidden candidates represent a considerable reservoir of talent. While once they would have remained in the shadows for recruitment purposes, in the online world, they are engaging in a range of conversations that can be of great interest to potential employers.
