Making Your Business An Attractive Proposition For Top Talent

By Business Desk

Wednesday, July 22, 2020.

As a business owner, there are few tasks that are more critical than putting together a talented team. If you’re looking to hire additional staff members, or you’re expanding your business, it’s crucial to ensure your company is an attractive proposition for top talent. Here are some steps you can take to bring in star players.  Cast your net wide

There are many benefits to hiring locally, but if you are recruiting for specialist roles, which require a precise skill set, or you have a large number of roles across several locations available, it pays to cast your net wider. If you’re looking for the best candidates, it’s worth looking into international recruitment and considering hiring people who have the skills you require and would be keen to explore opportunities overseas. If there is a shortage of talent locally or nationally, employing individuals from different countries could solve your problems. If you are recruiting overseas workers, it’s essential to understand the legal requirements involved, and it’s helpful to seek advice from an immigration solicitor to learn more about work visas and how you can support staff coming from abroad. The Internet has made it possible to search talent pools all over the world, and many employees are eager to travel and experience living in different countries. 

Make sure you can compete with rival firms

If you’re chasing the most talented individuals, there is a good chance that other companies will be too. Before you launch a recruitment drive or you start preparing to advertise roles, take a look at what other firms are offering, and make sure your employment package is competitive. If you’re offering a lower wage, or the salary is the same, but a rival is also providing extra holiday allowance, health insurance benefits and access to wellness programmes, for example, you’re likely to lose out. Pay is a driving factor for many candidates, but there are additional reasons people choose one employer over another. Flexibility and work-life balance are becoming increasingly important, especially among younger members of the workforce. 

Promote progression and development

If you’re hosting interviews, you will probably come across a host of candidates who are ambitious and express a desire to progress. Most people go into a job wanting to climb to the next rung or even reach the top of the ladder one day. If you’re keen to make sure the most talented individuals choose you over your competitors, it’s hugely beneficial to promote progression and to offer opportunities to get ahead. Investing in training and recruiting internal candidates for senior roles are excellent examples of how you can facilitate development and show potential employees that you will support them in their quest to improve their career prospects. 

As an employer, it’s understandable to want to hire the best talent, but it’s not always easy to ensure that your business is the number one choice. If you’re looking to add to your team, or your company is growing or diversifying, take these tips on board to keep hold of your star players and attract the best candidates for new roles.
