Attract The Right Talent Through Your Brand – New Zealand’s Affordable Employment Agency

Is your SME is struggling to attract & target talent, you will need to think about its appeal to candidates. Including whether its employer brand is compelling to others.

Your firm’s ‘brand’ is composed of the values that underpin your business’s culture and how it operates.

A powerful employer brand is therefore vital. And it isn’t just there to lure those who may have never heard of your company before. In fact, there may be many suitable potential employees among your long-time existing customers.

Why you should Attract and Target talent through your brand?

Here are a few reasons to create and maintain a strong employer brand.

  • It attracts more candidates – So if you concentrate on your employer brand, you will be able to attract applicants to your future vacancies, website or online campaigns – and it doesn’t have to be too difficult. If applicants have heard good things about your firm or seen an advertisement online highlighting the benefits of working for your organisation, they are more likely to want to find out more. Start a Facebook page, update it often and create a buzz.
  • It encourages referrals – An organisations brand is not only about how you market to and handle new candidates. It’s also about how you treat your current workforce, clients and customers. If your employees are happy in their roles at your company, they are more likely to say all of the right things about their brand to their friends, family and jobseekers. The opposite is also true, and they will likely discourage others from applying.
  • It helps to find like-minded applicants – An organisations brand should demonstrate the values, ethics and culture behind your business – and by communicating the right messages about what your brand truly stands for, you will be able to better attract likeminded individuals.

By hiring people who understand and identify with your brand

And see your vacant position as more than just a job, also truly believing in the importance of what your company does, you can improve retention and as a result, not have to spend so much time and money on continually hunting out new talent.

Younger employees are attracted to positions that offer a culture of continual growth and instant feedback. Sometimes even valuing these aspects of a role over salary.

Staff Retention: Important Tips From New Zealand’s Affordable Employment Agency

Employee engagement and retention should be a priority for all employers. With an ever-changing job market, staff retention has never been more important. Don’t lose your best talent to competitors. Here are some tips from The Recruitment Alternative on how to retain your staff.

Consistency

You need to make sure your employees know exactly what you expect from them. With a clear job description and training at the start of employment, will create a positive foundation for retention. Of course, every role needs to allow for flexibility to a degree. However, if your staff don’t have clear direction and line of communication chances are mistakes will be made.

Employee Recognition

A great retention strategy is to acknowledge staff achievements. When employees feel valued by their employer it fosters motivation and a positive workplace environment. Be sure to only implement a fair strategy that includes all staff members. When staff feel happy they are less likely to look for somewhere else to be.

Transparency How To Retain Good Staff

Feedback is very important to both employees and employers. Creating an open and honest workplace environment can allow new ideas or suggestions to be presented. When the time comes that they may need some feedback chances are they will be more receptive.

Development Opportunities

Progression within a company is highly sought after by candidates. Discussing professional goals can help you understand where they would like to grow. If there is an opportunity to allow for professional development why not do it? By the completion of a course, webinar, attending a conference, training, etc. It will not only benefit your employee but the company as well.
