75% of Hiring Managers Believe Hiring Is Only Going to Get Harder

New data shows 84% of hiring managers are experiencing burnout because of the current job market.




(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – The Greenhouse Hiring Manager Report, a new survey of over 1,500 hiring managers and c-suite executives, has revealed that 75% of respondents expect hiring to become even more challenging for the remainder of 2022. An overwhelming majority (84%) of hiring managers are experiencing burnout due to the tight job market. The survey also found that over three-quarters of hiring managers believe that candidates are more demanding in terms of the benefits they expect, leaving companies to play catch-up.

Key findings of the survey showed the main stressors for both hiring managers and their companies:

  • The primary contributors to increased stress levels in hiring managers are:
    • sourcing the right talent (41%)
    • candidate drop-offs due to competing compensation packages (26%)
    • an unstructured, ineffective hiring process (16%)
  • While the biggest challenges facing their companies when recruiting are:
    • creating an employer brand that stands out from competitors (55%)
    • recruiting talent for niche roles and markets and (42%)
    • being one-upped on offer packages in a climate with highly competitive salaries, benefits and sign-on bonuses (35%)

There was positive news for employees with the results showing that 74% of companies plan to give staff salary increases this year. Most respondents attributed company performance (36%) to this, however, a significant number (21%) also cited the impact that inflation or the general rise in the cost of living is having on wages and employee demands. Figures from the report show that 54% of companies will increase salaries by at least 10% this year, while 15% of companies are expecting to increase their salaries by at least 20%.

The findings did highlight a troubling discrepancy between the perception hiring managers have of applicant experiences and the reality for job seekers. According to the findings, over 90% of hiring managers say they are proactive in providing feedback to candidates, with 32% saying their organizations always try to provide feedback. However, more than 75% of job seekers stated they were ghosted following an interview, according to the Greenhouse Candidate Experience Report released in February.

With high levels of vacant roles attributed to the “Great Reshuffle”, companies are increasingly looking at their own internal talent pool to fill roles. The survey shows that the highest source of talent for companies is internal promotions and transfers (48%).
