Favorites from 2021: Recruiting Strategy

Every company recruits talent differently based on a myriad of factors including industry, company culture, and location. Recruitment also changes by the open position, time of year, and urgency of the hire. Since COVID-19 swept the world 18 months ago, HR managers and recruiters have had to pivot and try new things to attract and recruit talent in a new remote and/or hybrid role.

“If the housing market is hot right now, the employee market is even hotter,” says Emily Taylor, Chief Human Resources Officer at Wondr Health. “HR departments should assume candidates have multiple offers already in hand when they interview and act with urgency and communication. To get top talent, employers must move quickly through the recruiting process, and everyone in the recruitment process must be engaged in ‘selling’ the company as a great place to work. The pandemic has put a strain on company cultures, and candidates may not see the culture as they move through the interview process, due to working-from-home schedules or video interviews.”

“Recruitment should be designed with ways to overcome the challenges of virtual interviewing and less-than-full offices so that candidates can see the culture, environment, and vibe of the company,” she adds. “These same concepts around culture are important to address employee retention. For 2022, there will continue to be scarcity in top talent, and the trends from 2021 will continue. Employers should design recruitment processes for 2022 that create faster recruitment. Companies should perfect their value proposition as an employer and make sure everyone involved in the recruitment process can communicate why their company is a great place to work.”
