Recruiting is an integral part of any company whether it’s a Fortune 500 company or a small business. Hiring the right people can add to company culture or take away from it. Hiring the right people can also affect company production in major ways. The hiring process isn’t always smooth. Nowadays people often change their careers as often as they change their clothes which impacts employee retention. This year is your year to recruit the best people. Keep reading below for some tips on recruiting in order to make your hiring process less daunting.
Develop a Brand
Potential candidates need to understand why they would work for you. Your brand should be aligned with your mission statement and stand out from the competition. Another thing to think about is the number of people that would actually work for your company. Your social media pages, about pages, advertisements that your small business or large company might have should match how you want to brand your organization.
Create Job Posts
Job posts are what draw candidates in. Depending on the culture of your company, you want to tailor your job post to an accurate depiction of what it’s like to actually work for your business. If your company is a lot of fun and laid-back, you may use humor as a way to draw candidates in. If your small business or large company is more structured, candidates should be able to determine that via your blog post. This helps with recruiting candidates with the right personality for your business.
Connect to Social Media
Millennials are constantly connected to social media. If your goal is to bring tech-savvy millennials on board, having an online presence matters. Refer back to what your brand is and think heavily about your business’ values. Your values and brand should be evident on your social media platform.
Utilize an Applicant Tracking System
Applicant tracking systems (ATS) make the hiring process much easier. It only takes one click to post your job post to multiple sites at one time. Applicants are also sorted and interviews are scheduled. This saves a lot of time and money.
Conduct Great Interviews!
Finally, the interview process can cause a lot of anxiety for a potential candidate. It is best to conduct the interview in a way that’s not stressful. Also, it is important to model the interview in a realistic way so that the candidate knows exactly what kind of environment they’ll be working for. If your company thrives on jokes, maybe it’s important to see if your candidate has a sense of humor.
