Whether you are a CEO, HR practitioner, or manager in a company, the goal is the same: you want to hire only the best for your organization. But the harsh reality is that attracting and retaining top talent can be quite challenging. There are literally thousands of companies out there that are vying for the attention of the most qualified potential employees available and you need to be on top of your game if you want them to even consider working for you. With this in mind, here are a few tips to help your company attract and retain the best talents in the pool:
Place a premium on maximum exposure.
Before anything else, keep in mind that it is nearly impossible to attract the best employees to your company if you are not advertising in the right places. Remember that not as many people turn to the classifieds as in years past. The internet has become the go-to avenue for majority of talents seeking for a job or job replacement. Having said that, establish a solid presence on job employment sites such as jobstreet.com.ph, monster.com.ph, bestjobs.ph, and more. These websites have millions of dedicated employees Philippines that peruse job postings on a daily basis. Take advantage of this statistic.
Keep your current employees happy
You might ask: how is this relevant to attracting and retaining new talent? The truth is that keeping your current employees happy has everything to do with hiring employees that are motivated and passionate about performing an excellent job for your organization. How so? If you keep your current hires happy, they are bound to share their work satisfaction with their respective networks. This piques the interest of job seekers who will likely give your company a shot. Passion is contagious. That said; never underestimate the power of a satisfied employee. They may just be your key to finding exceptional future employees.
Find out what motivates potential employees
Scouting for talent is similar to the marketing process. It is vital to know how your target market thinks and to angle your pitch accordingly. Emphasize the strengths of your company and put them out there. For instance, if your brand is a non-profit organization seeking to make a difference in the world, advertise it accordingly. Use this specific feature to lure people in.
