These days, job seekers have a lot of choices. The unemployment rate is at its lowest in years1,and more and more people are being selective with the jobs they apply to. And with the average person spending 90,000 hours at work over their lifetime, finding the right job is extremely important in order for job seekers to feel fulfilled, happy and purposeful.2
In fact, 95% of workers3 said if they were considering a new job opportunity, insight into a company’s employer reputation would be somewhat or extremely important. And 64% of employees4 say a potential employer’s commitment to diversity and inclusion would be an important factor in their decision to accept an offer. Nowadays, the idea of a great place to work has evolved, and a job is about much more than just a paycheck.5
Meanwhile in this world where candidates are increasingly in the driver’s seat, it’s all the more important that employers select the right partner to help them find skilled, talented candidates. So who can you turn to when it comes to making the right matches? Recruiting tech company Breezy HR’s most recent Source of Hire report shows that employers overwhelmingly turn to Indeed as a trusted partner in the sourcing and hiring process.
Indeed continues to lead as the #1 job site for offers and hires5
Based on an analysis of Breezy HR’s ATS data, Indeed is far and away the best source for hire, superior even to employee referral and company career sites. According to Breezy HR, out of over 68,000 hires, recruiters sourced the most candidates through Indeed, followed by company’s own career sites.5

Indeed also leads with the highest percentage of total hires and offers compared to other branded job sites, at 15% of hires and 9.2% of offers — and delivers over 2.5X more hires than the five other branded job sites combined.5
But wait, there’s more: Indeed and Ziprecruiter are neck-to-neck for fastest time to hire, but applicants sourced through Indeed have a higher conversion rate.5
