It’s a constant challenge that doesn’t have to be a challenge at all.
Recruiting top talent for your organization should be as simple as flipping a switch. Why? Because your company’s reputation in the industry should already have top recruits lined up, waiting for the next opportunity to be one of the few who gets to walk in the door. Once that job posting goes up, they come calling.
It’s a nice thought, isn’t it? So, how do you get from this long-shot thought to an everyday reality? It may not be as far away as you think.
Put yourself in the recruit’s shoes. Who do you want to work for? Is it a company that is on the cutting edge of technology that will connect with you in the ways and places you’re most comfortable with, or is it an “our way or the highway” organization that hasn’t changed their recruiting policies in decades? One that makes you put in hours of work just for the privilege of applying for a job.
In our Top 5 Recruitment Strategy Trends for 2015 whitepaper, we break down five strategies that companies are implementing to become the “go-to employer” for top talent in the industry. They include:
Simplify Your Recruiting and Hiring
“The more complicated things are on your end, the harder it’s going to be for you to reach the candidates you need in a timely fashion. Getting caught up in complex, overbuilt recruiting and ATS process or archaic manual processes may leave you getting ready to contact a candidate as they are already in new-hire orientation somewhere else…”
Engage Your Candidates
“Engage your candidates with easy-to-access information. The harder you make it for them to understand and communicate with your company, the quicker you’re going to lose them to your competition…”
Make Mobile a Must
“More and more candidates are accessing the internet on their handheld mobile devices than they are on the computer. This includes not only searching for jobs, but researching the companies they want to work for and applying for those positions as well…”
Include Video in Your Recruiting
“…using video technology to connect with candidates is becoming more popular. It not only shows them that you are a progressive employer, but provides a tremendous benefit inside your walls as well.”
Keep Pace with Growing Compliance
“Not being compliant or unable to access documentation that proves compliance will result in fines, loss of time and loss of projects…”
