Recruitment Strategy

FILTER BY:
Hiring is a process that takes no prisoners — sometimes literally. Those with criminal records are more likely to be unemployed than nearly any other major group, with multiple studies finding unemployment rates around 30-40% greater than those without a record. When nearly a third of Americans have been arrested...
For many young workers, the American dream seems like just that — a dream. Workers are losing faith in the system and in their employers, but the truth is that there is still plenty of opportunities out there. People simply need to see this success for themselves. Hearing from previous...
Human resources isn’t a group of fortune tellers, but they might be the next best thing. Before your company finds itself in dire need of specific skills, HR will have prepared a recruitment solution. This, however, is no magical feat, nor a walk in the park. Identifying and addressing hiring...
Recruiting can be a really disjointed process. Working with a team allows the burden of hiring to be shared evenly, and allows for a diverse approach — but it can also result in some issues.  Team members’ differing visions/expectations for the hiring process can cause communication issues, arguments, and performance...
This year has been a tough one for HR teams across the country. Workers are leaving their jobs in droves, costs of labor and recruitment are rising, and candidates are becoming more selective when choosing a new job.  Overcoming the challenges that these new industrial norms introduce is the difference...
Virtual recruiting methods have taken over the industry over the last few years. As our workforce begins to truly pass into the hands of the younger generations, social recruiting becomes more and more common. Candidates are online like never before, and recruiters have answered the call by increasing their social...
There’s no feeling quite like finding a unicorn candidate. For many HR team members, finding the perfect candidate for an open position seems like a dream. There are too many open jobs and too few candidates that fit the bill.  While it can seem like a fantasy, hiring an employee...
The recruiting landscape is tough right now. Employees are still leaving in droves, and uncertainty is rising in the HR community. Attracting and retaining new talent is more important now than ever before — but to get candidates you need to think outside the box. Thinking like a potential employee...
Recruitment is more than just sourcing — it’s building a reputation. To attract top talent, it’s necessary to lean into yours. When customers and candidates alike think of your company, their mind and mood should shift to meet your brand. Through word of mouth, posts on the internet, and in...
The internet has provided interesting alternatives to traditional interviewing — but do they really compete? One of the more effective methods that gained popularity during the pandemic is the video interview. By getting on a conference call or using a custom engagement portal, companies were able to find top talent...
The traditional, unstructured interview is becoming obsolete. Now more than ever, finding that unicorn candidate with experience and drive—and holding onto them— is key. Behavioral-based interviewing provides an effective alternative, collecting more pertinent information, and bolstering results compared to unstructured interviews.   Today we’ll be discussing behavioral interviewing, its benefits, and...
While going through an agency is an effective way to hire, nothing beats effective in-house recruitment. In-house recruiters know your company inside and out. A good recruitment team can transform the face of your company into a marketable, diverse landscape. The employees they hire, stick around for the long haul....
After weeks and possibly months of recruiting, scheduling, and conducting interviews — you’ve found your new hire. What next? For many companies that’s it. They share the good news with their selected candidate, extend an offer, and begin the onboarding process. Most of the time, the candidates who did not...
Recruiting videos are one of the best ways to showcase your company’s culture. While a job ad tells a candidate what they’ll be doing for you — a quality recruiting video is almost a personality piece. After watching, an applicant will understand what makes your company tick, and the personality...
Traditional sourcing is a battle for the attention of applicants. When it comes to reeling in the best talent, recruiters have a lot of competition. Job description quality is often a differentiating factor. It’s the first introduction applicants get to your organization, and it needs to be enticing to separate...
Recruitment strategies are constantly shifting with the job market, and it’s important to be able to adapt to these changes in order to snag top hires. Before jumping into trends and specialized ways of hiring great talent, it’s important to understand the fundamental hiring types and how they play off...
Recruitment software and other hiring tools have one goal — to reduce recruiter workload. For the most part, these tools serve at most a small variety of functions. Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) allows companies to organize and track a large number of candidates based on a variety of factors, but...
In recruiting, unconscious bias harms diversity and overall quality of hire. Little things like preferring familiar names or saying that a hire is just a good “culture fit” will drain a diverse candidate pool. Over time, it won’t just be your diversity that will wane — your organization’s work quality...
Finding talent locally has its benefits — but expanding your outreach outside of traditional methods can yield excellent results as well. Global talent acquisition normally involves sourcing candidates internationally, as you’d expect, but it could simply mean recruiting from new areas that you wouldn’t normally consider. A global talent acquisition...
Managing candidate expectations, especially for high-volume positions, can be a daunting yet ultimately rewarding task for both the employer and the candidate. 2022 is an employee market, and it’s now easier than ever for potential candidates to pursue positions on their terms, which means employers must stand out from the...
The need for quality candidates is greater now than ever—but sacrificing fair hiring practices for efficiency is a mistake you don’t want to make. Over the past half-century, laws surrounding Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) have grown stricter and more specific in order to protect candidates from bias.  Failing to make...
Recruiting diverse candidates is top of mind for many recruiters—and for good reason. The value of various life experiences, mindsets, and cultures cannot be overstated. Recruiting diverse candidates allows organizations to make connections with all manner of people, creating a healthy company image and office culture simultaneously.  Actually finding quality...
Hiring during this ever-changing economic climate is as challenging as it is unpredictable. With more than 4 million Americans voluntarily leaving their jobs each month, figuring out how to hold onto talent is becoming the top priority for employers. When hiring for the future, it’s important to take into account...
Soft skills are the abilities that help us do our best work — the backbone behind a good workplace ethic. They tend to display a general competency, like communication or critical thinking, and find themselves on resumes around the world. Due to the simple nature of soft skills, many recruiters...
With the number of organizations choosing to mass hire increasing rapidly, things can get overwhelming for HR teams. The average time it takes for a recruiter to screen a resume is around 6-7 seconds each. While that seems quick if thousands of resumes are coming in regularly that task can...
As we head into the new year it’s important to recognize that recruiting is quickly changing. Remote and hybrid workplaces exploded during and after the pandemic, policies are always evolving, and the employer/employee dynamic is quickly becoming something entirely new. Finding employees using traditional methods is now producing mixed results...
Talent acquisition in the midst of lockdown was tough — and it hasn’t gotten much easier. Job seekers are everywhere, but that can make it hard to find the candidate your organization needs. Depending on the position, it could be difficult to find anyone in the market at all. Relying...
Finding qualified employees quickly has always been important—but speed is a higher priority now than ever before. Organizations all over the world are still in the recovery process from the hiring drought that the pandemic caused, and rebuilding a competent workforce quickly could be what determines the survival of the...
Workplace diversity and inclusion are key to any organization’s success. Setting diversity goals during the hiring process can save a lot of hassle on the back end while promoting equity and reducing the costs of recruitment. Finding a way to meet your DEI goals is now easier than ever—but with...
Artificial intelligence software (AI) is finding its way into HR departments across the world — and it’s only getting more popular. When you take a look at the benefits, it’s easy to see why businesses are putting AI software into their recruitment plan. Shifting just one or two tasks onto...
