3 Big Factors To Consider When Recruiting New Employees
September 21, 2022
As workplace trends continue to evolve, many aspects of the professional world have changed drastically.
So, when you are recruiting new employees to join your team, it is essential to keep up with current trends. To effectively attract top talent, consider these three big factors:
1. The changing nature of the workplace - With millennials dominating the workforce, traditional workplace structures are no longer adequate to satiate the young employee’s ambitions. In fact, experts at WGU state that millennials want sustainability, flexibility, authenticity, and diversity in the workforce.
Most millennials want a high quality of life, which includes work-life balance, and the chance for remote work where possible.
2. The type of position you are hiring for - Hiring the wrong employee can be both expensive and time-consuming. Rather than creating positions based on the employee, you need to recruit employees for specific and relevant positions. That being said, hiring the right employee can be an extremely challenging process.
The first step is to do a thorough job analysis, one that enables you to collect information about the various duties, responsibilities, unique skills, outcomes, and work environments of a particular job.
3. More than money: Intangible benefits to employees - To recruit and retain employees, you need to meet the standard set by companies that provide employees with a wealth of benefits, essentially fostering a culture of care.
Unfortunately, not all organizations have the budget to provide extensive perks. But showing employees that you care for their well-being can be done without spending the big bucks.
