As a staffing firm, recruiting quality candidates that fit the company’s culture is essential for employers. Businesses want a candidate with the right skills and attitude to better their company. However, there are times when hiring bad choices can impact office productivity and employee morale. These mistakes are costly and must be avoided. It’s also important to stay protected with Recruiter Liability.
In an article by Recruiting.com, here is a list of four tips for recruiting better candidates.
- Pay attention to the job descriptions. Read over your current postings and ensure that you’re describing the position as accurately as you can, in a way that’s easy to absorb. The best way to do that is by describing what the job entails and what it means to be successful in that role.
- Create an easy process for applying. As unfortunate as it may seem, prospective candidates are not looking to fill out several forms of information to be hired. Most of the time, you will lose these potential employees even before they submit their resume. Since you’re looking for highly skilled candidates, it’s important to consider that they probably have other offers. The best recruiting process provides easy apply tools.
- Manage candidate relationships. It’s important to stay in touch with candidates that, although are not a good fit for the current company you’re looking at, will be great for a prospective job. Do this by sending your best candidates information about current openings and keep them engaged in new opportunities.
- Invest time in social media. The large social platforms are where job seekers are and therefore, must be taken advantage of. Great tools include LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter for sourcing candidates. Make sure to post job openings on Facebook pages!
