You’re Not Alone

Many of you are fighting the real estate recruiting battle every day.

Faced with our own challenges, we tend to think we have it more difficult than leaders in other industries.

Dr. John Sullivan would take issue with that thought. Collecting data from multiple sources, he makes the case that hiring is difficult all over.

2019 survey of CEOs ranked their No. 1 internal business challenge as attracting and retaining top talent.

A similar survey revealed that 80 percent of CEOs worried about the availability of key skills.

Part of their unhappiness may be because research indicates that 46 percent of all new hires fail within 18 months….

Surveyed executives also revealed that 10 to 25 percent of new hires leave within the first six months.

Everyone is dealing with the same problems, and they’re often expensive, complicated, and exhausting to solve.

If you’re a recruiter or hiring manager, don’t give up. Your talent, effort, and focus are needed more than ever.
