Are you tired of filtering through hundreds of useless applicants in hopes of finding a handful that are qualified and excited to work for you? Do you find that your company has a high turnover rate and want to fix it?
If so, there are several things you can do that will improve your overall recruitment process so that finding quality, reliable employees is easy!
Before you even begin searching for applicants or posting a job opening, it’s important to take a look at your brand. Branding is one of the most important aspects of any business, large or small. It’s the way customers perceive your business and essentially, a promise to your customer. They’re able to understand what to expect when choosing your business. Your brand also makes you different from competitors. Branding tells a story of who you are, what you want to be and what you’ll do. Creating a good name for your business will automatically draw quality applicants.
Once you have a clear definition of your brand and begin implementing it into your daily tasks, you’ll also want to focus more on employer branding, as well. This means making a point to reward deserving employees, offer incentives, and make the overall employee experience at your company one that pleases everyone as much as possible. This too, will help draw quality candidates.
Define Position and Requirements Clearly
Writing a brief job description and posting it online isn’t the best approach for finding the best candidate for your open position. A quick, thoughtless position and requirement description will lead to applicants that aren’t looking for a specific career. They’ll see the detail-less ad and assume that there aren’t any important requirements.
Take time to focus on writing up a great ad that offers a clear, detailed description of what is expected of the applicant, should they get the job. Include your expectations for experience, skills, behavior, education and attitudes. You’ll be surprised at how well this approach works.
Enhancing your in-house recruitment process is key for finding quality candidates that will be an asset to your company. If you missed our previous post, offering more tips and help, be sure to visit it, below:
