How do you attract new employees to your company? How do you ensure that the right candidates are finding the opportunities you offer and engaging with these opportunities? And how do you do all of this while serving your local community at the same time?
This might seem like a lot of questions to cover in such a short guide, but the truth is, the answer doesn’t need to be so complex. IntoJobs will teach you how to attract new employees with just a few simple changes to your approach. Read on to learn more about how this is done.
Focus on culture
Your workplace culture is a key asset as you consider how to attract new employees. There are plenty of stories out there about nightmare employers, so make sure you are the complete opposite of this. If your company scores well on employee experience review sites, you are more likely to bring in the hires you need. A strong culture is also likely to turn your current employees into brand ambassadors – people who are going to sing your praises to potential candidates, even those who didn’t realise they were interested in a new job.
Make your voice heard
Social media provides vital tools you can use to promote what you are all about and to get your company noticed in the job market. Post engaging content on a regular basis, and use video and images to paint a visceral picture of what life is like at your company. The strategy puts you on the radar of more casual jobseekers, away from the traditional opportunity aggregator sites and job boards.
Consider looking to the past
Past employees often represent the perfect candidates for a role. They already know your company, after all, and they will understand what you expect and what you are looking for. Even if you don’t end up rehiring a past employee, these former staff members may be able to refer a suitable candidate to your organisation. It always pays to stay in touch — and to stay on good terms — with previous workers.
Examine alternative jobseeker pathways
There are many ways for great candidates to connect with jobs, so it may be time to start thinking outside the box. Programs like Transition to Work and Career Transition Assistance help candidates to find suitable roles, and partnering with a program provider like IntoJobs can help you tap into a vast resource of talent.
