Recruiting and attracting a workforce has changed dramatically, especially in the last 18 months; it is no longer a simple case of “if you have a job, you will fill the position”. With borders closed, job security low, immigration stunted - many industries are now seeing the flow on impact of COVID as we face a skilled worker shortage, with quality and skilled candidates being in high demand.
Now that the ‘new normal’ has become the norm, how do you attract the best talent? A year ago, flexible working was seen as an easy carrot to offer – now that’s no longer a differentiator. How else can your business attract top talent? By offering greater autonomy, making them feel appreciated, and creating a supportive, positive team environment.
Is it time to land your dream job, or maybe change career paths? Searching for a new job can be a daunting task, but not if you plan and take the necessary steps to achieve your goals. Staying organised, setting and meeting your search goals, and going the extra mile, will put you on the road to a new job before you know it.
Ask anyone involved in hiring and they will say it is time consuming and stressful. It can also be challenging controlling costs while ensuring the right people are hired. Now, more and more companies are embracing a flexible hiring option called “Unbundled Recruitment”. Its attraction lies in the ability to cost-effectively choose only the recruitment support they require, and none they don’t.
The tables have turned! Organisations must now convince employees to choose them. Recent research reveals the average lifecycle of a job is now between 12 months to 3 years, and with talent being much more accessible for your competition, employees have increased bargaining power as the job market has become increasingly more competitive.
