Recruitment Confidence Index 2008

Tuesday, 15/01/2008

Last September, ALBA Graduate Business School presented the collective results of the two rounds of the 2007 RCI (Recruitment Confidence Index) Survey. The results indicated considerable optimism, especially regarding the recruitment of new personnel. Many press clippings in the Greek press, as well as various interviews and references on TV and radio stations featured the results of the survey of both rounds. The question now is whether this spirit of optimism will continue to grow this year.

ALBA announces the beginning of the 1st round of the 2008 Recruitment Confidence Index. The online survey is currently undergoing and the questionnaire will remain active until the end of January

The RCI was primarily conducted in UK in 1999 by Cranfield School of Management and Daily Telegraph and in 2005 the survey was launched in Spain by ESADE. The main objective of the survey is to explore the perceptions and the trends of the companies regarding their recruitment processes and methodologies.  Will companies hire new personnel? In what kind of positions? In which geographical location? In which sector?  What kind of method are they going to use in order to attract and select new employees? Do they expect an increase in the salaries? The survey illustrates the dynamics of the labor market and provides valuable information to the business community and society as a whole.

Thousands of HR executives and top managers have been invited to participate.  The results of the 1st round will be announced during Spring 2008.  The 2008 RCI Survey is conducted with the support of ECDL Hellas, and in cooperation with SEV (Hellenic Federation of Enterprises). 

The participants will be the first to receive the analytical report and will have the chance to benchmark their recruitment processes with their industry sector. 

The survey will continue to take place every 6 months and is open to all Greek companies - Your participation is more than valuable and welcome!
