Please read below interesting article sheared by Recruiting Times supporting that 86% of UK small business owners spend at least an extra 10 hours a week on their recruitment process.

The survey of business decisions makers reported that 50% of respondents spend an additional five hours a week dealing with the hiring process, which suggests that instead of outsourcing to recruitment agencies, many are taking on the responsibility themselves.

This has a negative effect as 55 per cent of those surveyed believe that their lack of recruitment-credentials leads to them hiring the wrong candidates for their roles.

Over 40 per cent of people said they found it difficult to find a good quality candidate among a high volume of ‘average’ candidates.  As a result, 23 per cent are frustrated that candidates aren’t suited to the roles they have been placed into and thus the whole recruitment process starts again.
