Enterprise Recruiting Benchmarks at a Glance

One of the most striking findings from this survey is the caution displayed by enterprise organizations when it comes to hiring over the last 12 months. While growth in hiring volume is on the rise, many enterprise companies are still exercising caution, likely due to concern about economic uncertainty.

This caution is reflected in the number of hires made across enterprise organizations in the last 12 months on average — 26% of large companies made between 101 and 250 hires, and 18% made between 51 and 100 new hires.

However, there is also good news on the horizon, with 35% of enterprise organizations anticipating somewhat more hires in the next 12 months and 24% anticipating significantly more hires. This suggests that larger companies are still growing, albeit at a slower rate than smaller organizations.

Another key finding is the high volume of job applicants received by enterprise organizations. Larger companies tend to receive the highest number of job applicants, likely due to their larger employer brand recognition and increased recruitment marketing budgets. However, despite the high volume, just 20% of enterprise organizations interview between 31% and 40% of applicants.
