blue book 2014 - now available!

The ‘blue book’ 2014 is now available!

In it's tenth anniversary year, this market-leading annual employment survey reports on salaries, benefits and the comparison of attitudes between employers and employees. This year 579 organisations and 697 candidates contributed to the research for the blue book in the first quarter of 2014.

The blue book 2014 identifies the biggest challenges to recruitment and retention for the year and takes a closer look at the successful strategies that progressive companies are adopting to build the optimum workforce to steer their businesses through the coming years.

"Interestingly, it should be noted that more and more candidates are actively seeking out support roles and many are moving towards positions that are autonomous and offer change and variation."

Covering salaries, benefits, discussions about the job market and the differences in thinking between jobseekers and employers, the blue book is an invaluable guide to recruitment across the UK (London, Manchester and Birmingham) and Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam.

Key findings of 2014 include:

  • 71% of employers paid out bonuses in 2013, and 83% offered salary increases.
  • Lengthy recruitment processes and the slow responsiveness from prospective employers are the biggest challenge for candidates.
  • Employers continue to use a mixture of capability and personality testing alongside ‘meet the team’ interview techniques.
  • Most employers are willing to be more creative in order to secure the best talent.

The employers surveyed represented a full range of industries and organisations across all sectors and included start-ups, major banks, finance, insurance, accountancy, legal, media, marketing, HR, property, universities, hospitals, IT, charities and luxury goods brands.
