Three Simple Strategies For Securing Top Talent

Securing top talent for your client or company can be tricky, especially in today’s society. Everything is changing and new, modern strategies are coming to life. We have put together some information on three simple strategies that can help you attract a high quality talent pool.

1. Social Responsibility

The first strategy we must look at is social responsibility, something that should be a focus for every business. Social responsibility is the idea that all business should balance out their profit-making activities with some that benefit society. This can range from charity or community work to offering free services and products to those less fortunate.

Carrying out these responsibilities will show that your business is doing its part for the local community and indicates that your company beliefs, ethics and morals are all good and well-natured.

Not only this, but your brand image and recognition will be heightened and will entice candidates as they will want to work for a company who keeps other people in mind. They aren’t out to gain purely for themselves and make money.

2. Showcase Your Imagination

With trends in the recruitment world changing frequently, it is important that your company is on the ball. You should even aim to surpass the modern by using your imagination and being creative in how you showcase new trends.

One of the most effective ways to do this is to use video. Video-led recruitment is an amazing way that your company can gain top talent and beat your competitors.

3. Video-Led Recruitment

Video-Led recruitment ensures candidates have all the information they need, and recruiters have the opportunity to see the candidate first hand. From this, recruiters will be able to identify whether the candidate will fit within the company and if they are able to carry out the role to a high level.

There are three types of video-led recruitment available:

Video Assessments

Video assessments give employers and recruiters the perfect opportunity to set a few questions and see the candidates answers on screen. Not only does this save time, but it also gives hiring managers a better understanding as to whether the candidate is passionate about their potential role and the industry itself, or not.

Video Interviews

Video interviews help save recruitment time as they improve efficiency. They give employers the opportunity to ask whatever questions they think are necessary and see candidates answer them live, right from their computer or tablet screen.

Video CVs

Video CVs are also a very beneficial part of the recruitment process. Video CVs are a short video pitch that accompany a written CV or job application. They give candidates the opportunity to present their professional strengths and give recruiters the opportunity to gain a first impression and a better understanding of the applicant’s communication skills and cultural fit. As well as this, video CVs are a great way to save recruitment time and add a more personal touch to your average job application.

Choose Your Favourite

Once you have chosen your favourite video strategy, it is important that you create a ‘company snippet’ video and place it at the start of the process. This will give candidates a brief on what you expect from them and how the chosen process is going to work, while also showing you care and don’t want this process to be too daunting for them. You are offering some advice and getting candidates ready to carry on. Again, showing great ethics.
