Risky Way to Hire: Sit Back and Wait

CFOs respond if they are more likely to wait for applications or actively recruit:

30% Much more likely to post the job and wait for applications
35% Somewhat more likely to post the job and wait for applications
17% Somewhat more likely to actively recruit people
10% Much more likely to actively recruit people
8% Use an equal mix of both approaches

Workers respond if they are likely to consider a job offer from a recruiter who contacts them, even if they are not actively looking for work*:

22% Highly likely
45% Somewhat likely
17% Somewhat unlikely
15% Very unlikely
