January is a month where everyone is just coming back from their break and most people would think you would be easing back into work.


Recently however, it has been noted that more than half of the population are unhappy in their jobs and returning to this unhappiness can make them seek out new opportunities. As Monster, a worldwide job search platform, points out in an article “Sometimes peaks of hiring correspond with workplace factors that are only loosely related, like when people take vacation”.


Another factor in the influx of people seeking out new transitions in their career is New Year’s resolutions. Forbes points out that in the US alone 62% of American’s New Year’s resolutions were work related.


With this flood of people searching there is a better chance for you to get the right person to do the job, and one that fits in with your company culture. Don’t forget to use our top 5 tips to avoid hiring the wrong person!
