Finding the right people to fill positions can be challenging, especially when the people you’re looking for may not even be applying for the job. These are “passive candidates” or passive talent who aren’t actively job searching and, according to LinkedIn, now account for 70% of the global workforce. Since passive candidates make little to no effort to find employment, they are much tougher to identify. However, if hiring top talent is on your to-do list, then you need to be proactively searching for these candidates and engaging with the passive workforce. Here are a few ways your company can implement an effective recruitment strategy to target passive candidates.
Assessing the performance of your recruitment funnel is crucial in order to ensure that your hiring process is running efficiently and that your company is on the right path to attracting the best talent. Your recruitment funnel is important as it’s comprised of all the stages that, active and passive, potential candidates go through before getting hired.
Employees are the essence of your organization, and their productivity and performance determine the overall growth and success of your organization. Given that, it is imperative for you to have a highly productive workforce. But, cultivating a productive workforce and maintaining employee productivity is not as easy as it seems. It requires actionable strategies that not only work at the superficial level but address the things that impact employee productivity at the core. Mental clarity, overall well-being, and energy level are some examples of things that affect employee efficiency. If your workforce doesn’t possess mental clarity or appropriate levels of well-being or energy levels, it is deemed to be unproductive or perform below its true potential. Now, the question is how to address these core factors that determine employee productivity? The answer lies in ‘Zen practices’.
As technology continues to develop, employers will continue to hire employees with technical skills such as engineering and machine learning. However, while those technical skills are important, research shows that soft skills tend to consistently rank among the top traits that companies need most. Soft skills have prevailed to be essential for businesses, and although they may be called soft, they are actually quite hard to develop. Research has even found that 75% of long-term job success comes down to soft skills, like people skills, rather than technical knowledge.
Companies must go above and beyond to develop an employee experience that can attract, engage, and retain people in today’s competitive job market. Employee onboarding is an important aspect of that experience.
In recent years, workplaces have dramatically changed, and organizations around the world have adopted new ways of doing things. From learning to be more human-centric, bringing a stronger focus on empathy and well-being at work, to learning more about development and digital transformation. Needless to say, there’s a lot in store when it comes to emerging workplace trends, but some are more prevalent and essential for business success and output. Here are the top workplace trends you should look out for and adopt in 2022.
Unlike exit interviews, which help companies determine factors that caused employees to leave, stay interviews help you stop turnover in its tracks. Stay interviews are the newest trend and allow you to assess the levels of engagement and satisfaction in your organization. They highlight issues early on and build trust with your employees, which will end up reducing the need to perform exit interviews at all. Engagement surveys and exit interviews are still essential but here’s why stay interviews are also important.
Employees are the most valuable asset of any business, and the success of your organization is directly correlated to the health and well-being of your people. The amount of time your employees spend at work makes up a significant portion of their lives. So it’s no mystery why employees who feel good at work also feel better in other areas of their lives. Taking the time to prioritize the vitality of your employees helps foster a more positive and productive work environment. By focusing on employee well-being, you’ll also give your company a competitive advantage and help position yourself as an employer of choice in today’s competitive job market.
