Talent Acquisition and Recruiting
A house is only as good as it’s foundation. Talent Acquisition and Recruiting is the foundation of a good team. We can provide talent acquisition services independently or partner with you to make sure your foundation is strong. Here’s how:
In addition to managing online job boards such as Monster, Glassdoor, ZipRecruiter, CareerBuilder, Job.com, Indeed, Linkedin and many more we can conduct or train your staff on best practices for managing these job boards and the following events:
Open Houses or Job Expos
If done properly, hiring events inside your office location sets a strong, but welcoming tone for prospective employees. It gives you the opportunity to show off what day-to-day life in the organization is like. Open House style events require specific implementation to make sure you put your best foot forward without disrupting operations.
Job Fairs are a great way to attract a large number of candidates in a neutral environment. Typically, there are two styles:
Ballroom Style Job fairs are often in one or more large rooms with booths from several companies competing for prospective employees. To succeed, you must stand-out with a visually unique booth, proper placement of your staff throughout the booth and venue, and be equipped with the right visual and verbal tools to attract prospective employees.
Suite Style Job Fairs are great because they have the potential to build more of a personal connection to prospective employees. However, with the suite style come distinct liabilities and your staff needs to be very careful about their interactions. We know how to navigate these liabilities and set your organization up to succeed.
Mass Hiring Events
Mass Hiring Events help source talent prior to a new location opening. These events start your location off on the right foot with talent while providing brand awareness and priming the local area for your grand opening.
Direct Recruiting Strategies
What if you could make your competitors strength your own? You can. Just recruit the employee responsible for your competitors success. These employees often aren’t looking for another position, but our best practices avoid liability and increase your chance of hiring these high-performing individuals.
Screen prospective employees prior to interviews with convenient online questionnaires and telephone screening.
