Report: Always Looking – The Rise of Continuous Candidates

In today’s world of work, loyalty is one of the most sought after attributes an employee can have. After all, attracting in-demand talent is one achievement – keeping them is quite another.

Yet the rise of so-called continuous candidates is making retention much more challenging. These candidates are always searching for their next job move, putting employers under pressure to evolve their retention strategy, if they want to keep them.

To better understand this emerging trend, ManpowerGroup Solutions surveyed nearly 4,500 job seekers in five influential employment markets around the world – the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, China and Mexico.

In this report, the third in our series on candidate preferences, we explore this new mindset and make practical recommendations on ways to attract and retain in-demand talent.
