What are Some Effective Recruiting Strategies?
Recruiting strategies are critical to nurturing the best candidates throughout the interview process. In today’s world, it is incredibly difficult to recruit top talent without an enticing offer.
Between LinkedIn, job boards, and internet searches, there are countless ways to reach talent. However, that also means increased competition and very similar talent profiles. Differentiating between two top candidates can be a challenge. Here are a few tips to lead successful recruiting strategies to attract top talent:
- Treat candidates like your best customers
- Have a strategy to attract the best cultural fits
- Cover pain points in job postings
- Target and recruit passive candidates
Treating candidates the same way as you would your best customers makes them feel appreciated and increases their desire to join your organization.
Culture is even more critical than talent in recruiting. It is important that new hires work well with existing team members to help the company continue to grow. Employees who are not a strong cultural fit stand to hold the company back from reaching its full potential.
Many people are comfortable in their current roles and will only jump at the right opportunity. Include pain points in job descriptions to mobilize target applicants. Give them a reason to want to join your organization.
Lastly, some of the best candidates are those who are not actively searching for a new job. Reaching out to passive candidates to fill a role is a good way to maintain forward progress. These are highly-qualified people that might not necessarily be happy in their current role but are not actively seeking new employment. You never know until you ask.
Retaining High-Quality Employees
Every company’s worst nightmare is replacing top talent. This means more time spent on the recruitment process steps and with new employees onboarding, training, and getting up to speed. Retaining top talent can save the company valuable time and resources that can be put toward moving the company forward. Below are just a few recruiting strategies that can also help retain valuable employees:
- Competitive salary/benefits
- Promote internally
- Provide employees with clear direction and expectations
While these are just four simple steps that all companies should follow, many struggle with this, and as a result lose top employees. Constant turnover does not help a company grow which is why retention initiatives are imperative to company success.
