Attracting and retaining top talent is still the number one challenge that employers look to solve with their benefits programs. Actually, it's only getting harder. Employees are becoming more sophisticated and employers are doing more to compete for talent, so here are some strategies that you can implement into your business today to up your recruitment game:
Start by identifying your ideal employee.
Who is going to be the perfect fit for your team and the role that you're looking to fill? It can be hard but try and stick to that framework as much as possible to increase your chances for mutual success.
This next one is so easy; you can do it as soon as you're done watching this video.
Go online and view your company through the eyes of a job applicant.
Past and present employees are going to be reviewing their experiences on websites like Indeed and Glassdoor, so encouraging positive reviews is going to make a difference. Also, employees are going to be looking for reviews online on your business in general so encouraging reviews from happy customers is also going to make a positive impact in your search for the ideal candidate.
Finally, benchmark your benefits against your competitors.
Yes, we can do that. This way, your business is able to make an informed choice around your benefits and how you're going to spend your benefits dollars for the most impact. This can be beneficial for companies that are putting a plan in place for the first time or for seasoned employers that have had benefits for decades.
