This summary report of our XpertHR survey on using digital media for recruitment finds that employers' main use of job boards is to advertise vacancies and drive applicants to either their own websites or to the HR department. Respondents are positive about the benefits of using job boards, particularly in increasing their reach to a wider field of potential candidates, although HR practitioners' recruitment workload has not reduced as a result of using commercial recruitment sites.
The latest XpertHR research shows that employers experienced a median voluntary resignation rate of 7.9% in 2011 and a median total staff turnover rate of 13.2%, but there are the usual variations in labour turnover patterns according to industry and occupation.
