5 Unique Recruiting Ideas to Incorporate For Your Business

How To Attract Future Employees

Captivating new prospective employees is a critical way to differentiate yourself from competitors. How you present your business as an employer and the opportunities your company offers can make or break your ability to attract top talent! The number and type of people you encourage to apply relies on the WIIFM mindset – What’s In It For Me. It’s important to sound as appealing as possible to connect and engage with candidates. Highlight major benefits of the positions you are offering and the company itself.

Consider these five recruiting strategies when looking for new employees:

  1. Develop a talent network.  Your candidates are most likely researching your company beforehand, along with others in the market.  Make the application process easier for them by creating a virtual place to store them before deciding to apply.
  2. Create an employee referral program.  Even in 2020, word of mouth is an extremely effective form of advertisement for your business.  Your current employees can be your best advocates, and they’re more likely to reach out to potential candidates if they receive some type of incentive.
  3. Be active on social media.  Connect with your future employees and followers by posting different hiring events on your social media platforms.  This will also give you a better idea of where and when your followers will most likely be able to engage with you.
  4. Consider a collaborative hiring method.  Including some of your star employees in on an interview with potential candidates could be beneficial to all parties involved.  When it comes time to offer a job to a candidate, establishing relationships during the interview process will ease the new employee during their transition.
  5. Utilize your technology strategically.  On the Career Start application portal, you have access to a multitude of candidates who have shared their information with you.  Stay connected with those who have expressed interest and have been actively engaged.
