Human Resources and Recruitment departments are constantly competing for top talent in today's economy. There's a talent shortage due to the pandemic and the scattered re-opening of different states in the US. Many candidates are waiting to see what happens or don't want to change because they have a job that lets them work from home.
Considering this scenario, companies must find the answer to this question: What are some of the critical steps you can take to make your company stand out from the crowd?
These are four areas your company should focus on to stand out and become the best option for your future candidates.
Let's discuss each one.
This specific area is often overlooked as an essential part of the long-term hiring process for a company. So, how can you make an impact on your brand to help you stand out from the competition? Here are a few tips:
Many consider the job description to be the most important thing. But there is actually more to it. Most companies do not have a proper definition of the experience needed for each position or what a top performer looks like in their company. HR and hiring managers are often not on the same page when it comes to the ideal candidate. How do you improve this?
Make sure you have your top performers doing the hiring within the company. Why? They know how to recognize other top performers and will not be intimidated by hiring great talent.
Proactive hiring is not yet as common as it needs to be, but it positively impacts the company across the board. Imagine when one of your top leaders leaves the company and not having to think twice about it because you have their replacement already on the team. This is necessary for today's recruiting environment.
Many other factors lead to a competitive advantage in recruiting. Starting with best-in-class employer branding, ensuring you know exactly WHAT talent you need for your company, hiring high performers, and doing so proactively is a great start. There are many steps in-between that can help you build a proper plan, measure the ROI of talent acquisition, determine the right approach to hiring and ensure that your team is connected at the hip.
