Company Updates CEO, Evan Sohn on CNBC to Discuss Recruiter Index

Oct 07, 2021 / by  Nicole Gallina
Nicole Gallina CEO, Evan Sohn joined Kelly Evans on CNBC’s The Exchange to discuss the results of's Recruiter Index® for September 2021.

“Candidate sentiment is up for the first time since November 2020. We’ve been talking about a candidates market and it still is a candidates market,” explained Sohn, “I think the Great Resignation is really upon us.”

“Companies are really adjusting. We saw hybrid roles jump to now 42% of what the recruiters are working on now. That is now past remote work or in-person work only. Compensation in terms of a priority is only 31% of the total priorities for a candidate,” said Sohn.

The number of backfill roles continues to increase. “Last month it was 44% up from 40% the prior month and now it’s 50%. So 50% of the roles that the recruiters are working on are actually backfill versus new", shared Sohn.

The Recruiter Index®, a survey of's network of recruiters and talent acquisition professionals, has a successful track record of insights into the job market and hiring demand, as well as forecasting the Labor Department’s jobs report by relying on the sentiment of recruiters, HR leaders, and hiring experts.
