Faced with increasing recruitment difficulties, companies wishing to recruit executives are forced to relax their selection criteria.
In 2022, 64% of companies that have hired at least one manager say they have encountered difficulties, an increase of 14 points compared to 2021, according to a study published this Wednesday by Apec. To attract suitable profiles, 62% of recruiters have revised upwards the remuneration initially planned (+ 7 points in one year).
Quite logically, large companies, which often have room for maneuver on this point, are the most inclined to use this lever in order to make their offers more attractive. Thus, 76% of them offered a higher starting salary than initially expected.

In addition, 81% of companies agreed to adjustments relating to the profile of the candidate ultimately selected, most often favoring executives with less technical skills or less experience. Companies are also making their recruitment process more and more flexible, by accepting applications without a cover letter (44%) or by organizing job interviews by videoconference (46%).
Yet, despite the fierce competition between job offers, there are some things on which companies do not compromise. In 2022, only 30% agreed to grant more telework days than expected, for example.
