Raise your hand if you’re still working on your new year, new you goals. It’s almost impossible not to catch the motivation that comes about each January. It’s a chance to start fresh and be your best self. In fact, throughout the year, we often create moments of change for ourselves with the intent to rejuvenate our lives. This can be a fresh coat of paint, a new haircut, spicing up your commute with a more scenic route, or tidying up your living or work space.

As a result, many companies are making uninformed or impulsive decisions that could prove to be costly and damaging to their overall talent acquisition strategy.

In fact, two out of five companies are either dissatisfied or indifferent to their current provider.
