The job market has seen quite a few fluctuations in the last couple of years, and one of the biggest concerns for managers is how to find the best job candidates, no matter the market and economy.
To attract the right candidates, companies must stay competitive. But what does that mean? Here are a few ideas.
3 Ways to Attract Qualified Workers for Your Company
Create an Ideal Employee Profile
This is an internal process that will help you and any other hiring personnel understand what you are looking for in a perfect hire. Consider what this person works likes, and how they would fit into the company, culturally. Everything from work ethics, work habits, and personality traits are fair for you to consider.
By having an ideal candidate profile, you and your hiring team can be on the same page for how to sift through applications to make the hiring choice easy.
Market Your Company to Appeal to the Candidate You Want
After considering the type of candidate you want (and need) consider how your company attracts those clients. Be sure to implement incentives and company cultural offerings that speak to the qualities you’re looking for in a candidate.
Examples of incentives can be free training and continuing education opportunities, remote work options, memberships to trade and professional networks, etc.
Leverage Your Current Employees
One of the best resources you have at your disposal for finding top talent for your company is your current staff. When you consider the top performers in your company, in any department, you can determine what qualities about each person are most desirable in your next hire.
Many companies find success when they give their current employees incentives for quality candidate recruitment. This can take the form of direct referrals as well as writing company reviews on sites like Glassdoor.
