Recruitment is only getting tougher.
Candidates are more connected than ever. They can find out about lots of jobs in seconds and even get notifications directly to their phones.
Candidates are also becoming more choosey about the kind of “company culture” they want to work in. You may think you are the one assessing them, but be sure they are thoroughly checking out every mention of your company online.
All this means that attracting top talent is becoming more difficult all the time.
There is fierce competition from rival companies offering fancy benefits and packages to attract the best staff.
You need to have a strategy in place to draw positive attention to yourself.
Your business has a secret weapon though, even if you don’t realise it.
Be More Marketing – Harnessing HR Skills
Your HR team may have their hands full already dealing with current staff and keeping things running smoothly. Yet, with a few small tweaks to their practices, they can adopt a marketing style approach that can help attract new talent.
For a start, the HR team can come up with a strategy for company reviews on sites like Glassdoor and Indeed. Potential candidates will be checking your company out and it’s important to have a positive public profile.
They can also begin to think about how the company can create a culture at work of employees promoting the company. Perhaps by sharing images of team-building events, or a company blog posts, across their social media.
Simple, easy-to-implement ideas like this can have a big impact on the type of talent you attract.
