Just looking throught the Stepstone Total Talent Report 2008, and there seems to be some very strange stats used that don't seem to make sense - it's Talent Management gone mad!! The answers shown to this question go against everything that the recruitment marketplace is telling companies what they need to do to recruit people!! They pose the question, "Which steps has your organisation undertaken in the past to overcome recruitment difficulties, and which would it consider undertaking in the future?"
The answer responses are in the relevant colours Have undertaken in past | Would undertake in future

Improve benefits package 47% | 33% Down 14%
Offer higher starting salaries 54% | 24% Down 30%
