HR’s responsibility does not end at attracting great employees; keeping them is the key to an organisations’ success! That is why your employee retention strategy should be just as important as your recruitment plans. Having a revolving door of staff is not practical for any business, it is expensive and can disrupt your company’s culture.
2022 has arrived and it’s time to start thinking about your recruitment strategy for the year ahead.
Why is having an effective recruitment strategy important?
If you want to improve your success in talent acquisition and establish a sustainable hiring process to ensure you attract and retain the best talent next year, developing an effective recruitment strategy is critical.
As you carry out your end of year review, assess what worked well in 2021 and what needs to change for 2022. A new year is a fresh start, so it’s a great time to experiment with new strategies. If you’ve been struggling to attract talent, you need to flex your approach to hiring practices in the new year.
Our 2022 Salary Survey highlights the degree to which the priorities of candidates and their motivations for accepting a new role have changed in light of the pandemic. So, take some time to consider what will make your organisation an attractive employer in 2022. Will you offer competitive remuneration and benefits packages for example? Will you offer excellent career progression opportunities? Is your business environmentally and socially aware? Will you offer a pleasant working environment and encourage a healthy work life balance for your employees?
Why enlist the services of a recruitment agency?
As a savvy employer, you recognise the value of top talent, but you’re also aware that attracting and retaining top tier candidates is a time-consuming and costly process. And in a buoyant jobs market, where employers are competing with one another for the most skilled and experienced staff, this process becomes even more challenging.
Partnering with a professional staffing agency who can help by identifying and attracting the right candidates for your organisation can significantly reduce the pressure.
Here are 3 key benefits of using a professional staffing agency:
1. Speed up the hiring process
A well-established and experienced staffing agency can find top tier candidates faster than you can. In no time at all they can tap into a vast talent pool via their existing database, they have a broad network of connections to leverage and utilise powerful sourcing tools that make the process of finding the right job candidates much faster and more productive.
2. Access to the best candidates
Staffing agencies have access to a wide pool of talented jobseekers. Top candidates don’t have time to search job boards. Instead, they turn to a specialist recruiter who they can trust to find them the right role. This includes access to candidates who are actively seeking work as well as talent who are employed elsewhere. Professional recruiters also understand the logistics and marketing value behind each of the top job boards.
3. Market knowledge
A businesses’ requirements can often be specific and difficult to find, this is where a recruiter’s industry expertise and market knowledge proves valuable. Once a relationship has been built, the agency will be aware of the qualities and attributes required for someone to be a good fit for your company, and all future hires will be easier and faster. Professional recruiters are industry specialists and can provide regular market insight to hiring teams. They can offer advice on attracting the best talent, salary and benefits, skills shortages, hiring complexities and retention strategies.
