Take Steps Now Toward Successful Talent Acquisition
Employers no longer have the power position – the workforce has more choices than ever. This can present challenges in talent acquisition, but you can overcome them by evolving the way you approach bringing the best and brightest to your organization.
Lurk Where They Lurk
Your top candidates are getting their vitae in front of as many people as they can, which involves establishing connections, and they’re using network platforms to do it. Rather than using desktop computers, they’re utilizing apps, which means you’ve got to be as mobile as your potential new hires.
In fact, it’s worth your efforts to think about your desktop layout after you’ve optimized for mobile, because smartphones and tablet computers are overwhelmingly in more use than desktops.
You have got less screen real estate to work with on mobile devices, which means you’re approach to design has to consider this. This involves putting out the most relevant and attractive data in such a way that it will be the first thing they see on their mobile screens.
Also, an online hiring portal is a standard tool for organizations that have used mobile design to their benefit.
Boast Your Brand
When you highlight your brand, you’re essentially showcasing your company culture. This involves many elements, from the colors you choose in your graphics to your logo to the words you use to state your mission as an organization.
Why does this matter in your talent acquisition strategy? It matters because top talent looks for more than just the right salary and benefits; they’re looking for work that means something to them. They want to spend their work hours with a company that is a match to their objectives as humans, as well as an employee.
When you put your company culture out front, you avoid attracting the wrong candidates, which makes your hiring process more streamlined and avoids the risk of bringing in people who will eventually figure out that they’re not a match. Talent retention will become an issue if you’re not clear about who you are and what you represent.
