What is happening?
Every organisation seems to be struggling to attract candidates. The Great #Resignation #Reshuffle #Re-org (pick your favourite) has caused chaos for talent acquisition professions. Covid has shifted power away from organisations to the individual. Individuals have tasted more freedom, more flexibility and more pay. A large percentage of the workforce is actively looking for a new role.
We believe, however, that making incremental changes can improve the chances of finding your next superstar.

How can your organisation attract more candidates?
Candidates are excited by roles that match their strengths. Your organisation can attract the right candidates by highlighting the behaviours required. This immediately makes your organisation & advertised role stand out.
Job ads often start with the organisation: “Look at how many awards we’ve won”, “We’re the market leader…”, “We have been established for 26 years”.
Ask yourself, how likely is it that your next employee is going to join your team because the organisation has been around for 26 years? They’re going to join because they are excited and motivated by the potential of the role.
