Recruitment and Hiring

When filling vacancies, companies have a wide range of options at their disposal for the targeted search for suitable candidates. The Job Market Monitor Switzerland regularly surveys the HR managers of a representative selection of private and public companies from all over Switzerland on the practice of personnel search and hiring. The surveys can provide insights into the extent to which companies advertise vacancies and how they use the various search options. Furthermore, the surveys provide knowledge about which types of positions are very difficult or impossible to fill today despite intensive recruitment.
