Did you know that, for companies looking to hire, the job market is more competitive than ever? Hiring managers are discovering that a large quantity of resume responses does not necessarily guarantee quality applicants. At a time when job seekers can afford to be more selective, how do good companies attract great people?
If you find your company competing for high-performance candidates, here are some suggestions that will give you the competitive advantage:
- Lifestyle Perks – Today’s professionals expect more from their employers in terms of work environment and policies. Some of the trends to consider are implementing flexible hours or relaxed dress code and/or allowing pet visitations.
- Benefits with Wellness Programs – In addition to the typical benefits, employees are expecting wellness programs and/or discounts for gym memberships. These programs can also help companies to reduce work time lost for sick leave.
- Culture Match – A company culture that demands quality talent is a magnet for like-minded individuals. Candidates are seeking positions with companies that not only pay competitive salaries, but more importantly align with their passions.
The key to every candidate search is to start with a targeted job description—does it communicate your company’s competitive advantages and unique culture? In this competitive market, many companies are finding that the easiest solution is to partner with a professional staffing agency. At Alliance Professional Staffing, we make the hiring process easy for you—from culture assessment and job description development to candidate search and selection to placement with onboarding services. Next time your company is challenged with hiring great people, call on us to help you attract the high-performance professionals you deserve.
