The recruiting industry is not what it used to be. Jobs, technology, candidates, and strategies have all changed immensely over the past few years, as STEM positions proliferate, social media explodes, and a new generation of workers—complete with new habits, wants, and needs—has emerged. You've probably felt the impact of this evolution firsthand, and you've realized that it doesn't matter how many people are actually out there looking for jobs (or not looking for them, as the case might be). If you’re having trouble finding the right candidates for the right positions at the right times, you’re dealing with a talent shortage.
In this eBook, we outline four critical ways you can ensure the development of a rich talent pool.
Attracting today’s savvy candidate requires much more than a creative job description and a flattering email message. The transparency provided by web sites such as Glassdoor combined with a millennial desire for meaningful work and corporate responsibility have the upped the ante when it comes to employer brand and candidate experience. While many firms have good intentions when it comes to employer brand, these intentions aren’t always translated to action, leaving many candidates feeling frustrated as they move through the process. New hires need confirmation that everything they were told in the interview processes is not only accurate, but even better than expected. When the onboarding process falls short of those expectations, candidates immediately question their decision to accept the offer and retention efforts in jeopardy. Join this webcast to learn how to avoid costly new-hire attrition in your organization.
A recent Human Capital Institute report found that 69% of respondents are having difficulty filling critical positions and only 20% agree that they have a strong talent pipeline for critical roles. Competition is fierce and the power has clearly shifted from employers to the candidate. Today’s job candidates expect to be treated like consumers, and the most successful marketing teams know that consumers are increasingly suspicious of brands. These marketing teams implement strategies to foster trust and loyalty among their target audience.
Just like marketers, recruiters must have the ability to not only attract but engage candidates as well, and they are tasked with fostering that same trust and loyalty among the candidates they hire as well as the ones they don’t. It’s not enough to just leverage the latest tools and implement trend-setting processes in the recruiting department. Recruiters must also live the employer brand every day.
Living the brand encompasses demonstrating the EV
Attracting talented job candidates is one of the biggest
challenges facing HR in the next 10 years.1 Understandably,
organizations want top talent and they are highly focused on
recruiting strategies that enable them to hire the very best.
One increasingly popular strategy is mobile recruitment. As
mobile devices become ever more ubiquitous, potential
candidates are starting to look more favorably at organizations
offering a mobile recruitment option.2 But are all candidates
created equal when it comes to mobile recruitment? We decided
to take a look at the coveted members of the workforce and
explore their use of and attitudes towards mobile recruitment.
Using the high-potential employees subset of our global
WorkTrends™ survey data, we were able to compare top talent,
who significantly outperform their peers and demonstrate a
stronger capacity to succeed,3,4 with other employees. The
results provide new insight into mobile recruiting and guidance
for organizations looking to attract
Find out what motivates recent graduates and the messages that resonate most as they explore finding a job and building a career. If you thought you understood the millennial marketplace, get ready to be surprised.
Did you know that 88% of all job seekers have at least one social networking profile? Because of this, 92% of companies have used or plan to use social media to recruit. If businesses aren't using social media for recruiting, they can potentially miss candidates that wouldn't be found elsewhere. Don't let your competition find these great candidates first, and even worse, your competition can find these great candidates.
Finding and retaining top talent is no easy task.
The national unemployment rate is just about as low
as it has been in almost a decade and job seekers are being more particular about where they want to work — and for how much money. In this “candidates’ market,” you need every advantage you can get.
With that in mind, we hope the data in our 2018 Salary Guide will help you recruit, retain and pay employees
at all levels — and win the competition for top talent.
