Finding the best talent is what every employer strives to do. Of course one person's definition of best can vary enormously from another's. What is making the search more difficult for a minority of employers is searching for the exact fit. 

The trouble starts when HR ask you what you are looking for and you start listing all the things you want. That then becomes the brief. Yet as our report shows, most employers are seeking just 70% of what they put in the brief. The issue is that they don't start out the process thinking like that, and it is our role as recruiters to consult and help shape a brief to the talent market, saving employers time and frustration.
