Attracting top talent isn’t always about the money. In fact, there are many other compensatory factors, in addition to organizational culture and work environment, that go into a candidate’s thought process when considering a career move.
With increased opportunities in a global workforce, an increased demand to hire top talent, and with technology changing the recruiting process and how job roles are executed, it’s vital for organizations to be on the top of their recruiting game.
Finding the right person for the job continues to be a challenge for recruiters and hiring managers. With many companies planning to increase their hiring efforts this year, it’s imperative that you put additional time and effort into how you attract the best candidates possible. With more opportunities for talent comes more competition for you, and making the right hire now is the key to strengthening your company today and into the future.
That’s right – another generation is starting to hit the workforce. In fact, some of them already have! Many companies are still trying to figure out the best strategies to recruit Millennials and Generation Y, let alone give any thought at all to hiring this new generation of young professionals.
Prioritizing job applicants is a difficult task. No one wants to discount a candidate who could potentially be the perfect fit for your organization. You also don’t want to be the person who championed a candidate who turned out to be a hiring mistake.
While most of the attention in the recruiting industry is focused on finding and hiring top candidates, this is just one part of the equation. Many companies relax once they make a big acquisition – something that could be a big mistake.
