'Mid-level staff most hired experience category of 2016'

Middle level staff was indeed the 'most hired' category of 2016 as professionals with 2-5 years of experience witnessed an 11 per cent rise in recruitment during the year, says a report.

Professionals with 2-5 years of experience witnessed an 11 per cent rise in demand, while those with 10-20 years of experience saw 10 per cent rise and those with over 20 years of experience saw 9 per cent increase.

"Professionals with 2 to 5 years of experience have the right combination of experience, energy and passion to adapt quickly, pick up new skills and capitalize on training and development opportunities to accelerate both their own and the company's growth," Times Business Solutions Head of Strategy Nilanjan Roy said.

As part of the year-end RecruiteX report, TimesJobs includes a special retrospective 'Recruitment Practices Survey 2016' with inputs from over 800 employers to capture how recruitments panned out over the year.

The findings of this survey corroborated facts from December 2016 RecruiteX report with 60 per cent surveyed employers saying that middle level staff was indeed the most hired experience category of 2016, followed by junior level employees (25 per cent) and senior staff (15 per cent).

Recruitment portals were the preferred hiring channel during the year, as per 40 per cent employers, this was followed by social media and referrals, revealed the 'Recruitment Practices Survey 2016' retrospective report.

The report said for nearly 30 per cent organisations the biggest hiring challenge of 2016 was sourcing the right talent, for 25 per cent it was screening talent, another 25 per cent felt there were skill shortages and for 20 per cent dropouts were the biggest challenge.
