If it’s been a while since you last looked at your recruitment and hiring strategy, now is the perfect time for a review. After a few years of rapid workplace changes, we’re starting to see a clearer picture about what workers really value. To find top talent this year, you need to keep up with what today’s employees want and need.
If you’re ready to reassess your hiring and recruitment practices this year, here are some questions to keep in mind.
What are my company’s needs, and what are our candidates’ needs?
For many industries, it is still a candidate’s market, and candidates have a lot of choices about where they want to work. While it is important to prioritize the wants of your applicants, you should not neglect the needs of your company.
The good news is that often qualities that candidates value in employers are also beneficial to employers. Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging practices; green initiatives; and workplace flexibility are all examples of policies and initiatives that both are in demand among candidates and can improve your workplace culture.
What are the current recruitment trends?
Keeping up with hiring trends can help you stay ahead of the competition. Like with any HR trend, it’s important to assess trending practices to find the right fit. By being open to adapting your strategies, you can increase your chances of finding the best candidates.
