Passive Talent Index

Highlighting what is happening, where and why, in the world of talent, the Passive Talent Index tracks and reports the appetite among workers for new opportunities.

What is Passive Talent?

PTI % represents percentage of passive candidates in market ready to respond.

Unlike your average job seeker, passive talent refers to the people currently in a role that they may or may not be happy in, they are not actively seeking a change.

The higher the PTI number is, the more passive the talent is, meaning companies will have to work harder to attract them.
