Attracting The Future: How Culture and Campaigns Drive Talent & Productivity

Do you have the organizational culture and the recruiting campaigns you need to get you the employees and talent you want? Many companies feel they have great cultures, but they may not be doing everything they could with social media or marketing to attract the workforce they need. If you have a job fair, online posting or public application process, do enough people know it exists? This customized hands-on session will give your people the specific tools to get the right candidates for the job!
Issues and beliefs 

72% of employers struggle to find relevant candidates. Employers and recruiters believe the job market is candidate-driven; labor is in control.

86% of your best candidates are already employed and not looking for a new job.  And top candidates typically are available for only 10 days between jobs, so you can’t only recruit people who are looking for jobs.

Solutions and facts  

  • How to take action, reach great candidates and convince them to take a look at working with your company?
  • Career opportunity is the #1 reason people switch jobs- are people seeing your company as a bigger opportunity for them?
  • Show the candidates you want and need exactly why your culture is a great fit for them.
  • Reach out to the right people even if they’re not looking for a job now and convince them your organization is the kind of place that they’d like to be.
  • Learn why attractive culture and social campaigns can more quickly and affordably create the ideal workforce than passive channels like Careerbuilder and Indeed.com.
