How do employees review companies that offer benefits aside from compensation? JobSage surveyed 700 employees and 300 hiring managers to find out how title inflation has affected professional experiences.
Of those we surveyed, nearly half of hiring managers (48%) said job titles are less reliable indicators of skills than they used to be. In fact, 40% of managers said they’ve had trouble finding the right person for an open role because candidates’ past titles are confusing or overstated.
