Employers turn to the web to net staff

The internet is now being used by nearly half of all employers to recruit staff, according to a survey.

The fourth annual recruitment survey by the Institute of Personnel and Development draws attentions to the growth in usage of the net from 36% in 1999 to 47% now.

Imogen Daniels, IPD adviser in employee resourcing, said: ‘The internet as a recruitment tool is here to stay.

‘I anticipate more and more employers switching to this method of recruitment,’ she said.’However, our research shows that despite the increase, only 1% of recruiters for professional positions viewed it as a useful nethod, and only 2% of those recruiting for managerial or skilled positions viewed it as being more effective than other ways of recruitng,’ she added.
