Aside from handing over your recruitment needs to our expert Workforce Extensions offices, there are a number of key considerations to keep in mind when you are hiring to help ensure you are able to recruit the top talent.

While technology makes it easier than ever to have your job vacancies viewed by a large audience, to properly connect and engage with quality candidates requires you to go that extra mile to stand out in the crowd.

Below we outline a few key points to keep in mind as you go about hiring new candidates to make sure you attract the best talent available!

  • Treat candidates like customers

In today’s competitive job market, for high-quality candidates the hiring process can be as much about screening their suitability for the job as it is a chance for them to assess whether they want to work at your company. It’s crucial to treat candidates with respect through the application and hiring process and let them know how excited you are to be getting to know them, particularly if you feel they might be a good fit for the role. Make sure to avoid wasting candidates’ time or stringing them along in the process, as this can lead to negative connotations about your business which may impact your future ability to attract talent.

  • Nail your job descriptions

As it’s generally the first point of contact candidates have with your business, including a compelling and attention-grabbing job advertisement is one of the most important tools you have available to attract the attention of high-quality employees. A good job advertisement should include an accurate job title, succinct job summary and brief overview of responsibilities, required skills and employee benefits.

  • Consider past candidates

If the role in question is one you have previously advertised in the past, chances are you may have rejected some past applicants who would likely have still been a great candidate but just missed the cut. There’s no harm in reaching back out to these people to see if they’d still be interested in the role, as many may have gained further relevant skills or experience since you last spoke to them. 

  • Explore employee benefit schemes

As high-quality candidates are likely to have greater choice about the job that they ultimately accept, it’s important to be able to set yourself apart from other employers through offering a superior workplace culture and perks. One way to do this is by ensuring that you are able to offer employees great benefits for working with you: whether it be a great work-life balance, extra time off, additional flexibility or monetary bonuses, these extra benefits can help you stand out to quality candidates.
