Hiring trends in Belgium in 2019
2019 looks set to be another strong year for the Belgian economy, with a number of businesses gearing up to expand. Competition for top talent will continue to be the driving force for how businesses recruit. In what looks set to be another candidate-short market, employers will need to act fast to ensure a rapid recruitment process.
Our advice to companies and hiring managers is to be flexible, and to not overlook candidates who do not quite fit the job description. Instead, they should consider candidates with transferable skills who illustrate the potential to be fast learners that can be trained up.
Investing in employees will also help with retention levels. Due to the increasingly competitive landscape for recruiting and retaining talented professionals, companies will need to look at how to add more value to roles. Added incentives’ such as flexible working, workplace environment and social events will play an even more prominent role in candidates decision-making.
