Trouble finding Top Talent
Having trouble finding top talent in a market dominated by candidate shortages? Your company needs to make a great impression. You must stand out from other employers with a strong employer brand and recruit in a creative and an out-of-the-box approach. Start finding top talent by outlining your recruitment strategy. A plan will improve your hiring process and help to accomplish your recruiting goals.
Social Media Recruiting
Both companies and job seekers are evolving and using technology that is changing rapidly. Posting job openings on social media, especially with a link to the application, is a great recruiting tool. Social media is also a great way to show off your office, current employees, and snippets of your workplace culture through regular posting.
Incentives and Employee Referrals
Referrals are more likely to be hired, to perform better on the job, and less likely to quit. This means they can save your company from the costs of employee turnover. This can range from 30-50% of a worker’s salary for an entry-level position, 150% for a mid-level position, and a whopping 400% for a high-level position. You need an employee referral incentive that creates sustained buzz and excitement.
A well-balanced recruitment referral strategy should account for about 40% of your hires. The benefits of incentives are incredible. This strategy lowers the cost per hire and boost employee morale. This program can be used with equal success with hard-to-fill and high-volume roles. The trick is to market it and dedicate resources for its administration.
Spotlight Best Employees
Want to get creative? Invite your employees to make their own short films about why they work for you. Brag about your employee’s talent on your company’s social media and website. This stands out and shows potential candidates that good work is appreciated. But don’t stop there. Send those stellar employees out to job fairs, college recruiting events, and any other community event where your company is visible.
Stay in Touch
Some of your best candidates may be previous employees! When someone talented leaves your company, make sure you have a formal strategy to stay in touch. Check in with them 30-60-90 days and then one year after they’ve left. Send them a hand-written card. Take them to coffee. Are they happy? Is there a new role they’ll be ideal for?
