Finding the very best talent for your business has never been more challenging. Adapting to the post-Covid world, coupled with the emergence of the ‘Great Resignation’ means organisations need to think differently when trying to attract the best new employees.
Trying to keep up with the latest trends in the world of recruitment can be tough, while sifting through hundreds of applications and interviewing candidates can be a time-consuming process. Working with a professional recruiter can transform the hiring process and help you find the very best talent in a fraction of the time.
In this blog, we thought we would explore some of the challenges businesses are currently facing and how a recruiter can help overcome them.
What are the challenges of recruiting in 2023?
The last few years have caused a significant change in the workplace. Remote working is here to stay, with 85% of employees stating that they expect some form of hybrid working in the future. This means that businesses need to adapt their approach and working patterns where possible to cater to the changing expectations of employees if they want to attract the best new talent and retain their existing teams.
Of course, it’s not just about the changing demands of employees. With competition so high, being able to attract the very best talent is incredibly challenging, with research showing the best candidates are off the market within ten days. That means businesses need to be acting quickly, which places a lot of pressure on HR teams, who will need to promptly review and contact applicants if they want to secure the most skilled employees.
Being able to put your brand in front of the right people is also a growing challenge. Not all applicants will be actively looking for a role, with research showing that 73% of candidates are passive job seekers, so it is vital that companies are working on their branding and using options outside of traditional platforms to target new talent.
What help can you get?
It can be tough to navigate the ever-changing and often complex world of recruitment. But if you work with an individual or team with a wealth of experience you will receive support every step of the way, dedicated to helping you to attract and secure the very best talent that will help you take your business to the next level.
While salary is always an important factor, candidates are also looking for companies that align with their own ethos and outlook. It is important that time is taken to learn the culture of your business, ensuring the very best candidates are handpicked for you.
