4 Cost Effective Ways to Attract the Best Talent in the Market

The people you hire directly reflects your organisation, attracting the best talent can be a challenge, especially for organisations with limited resources. However, there are multiple cost-effective strategies that can help you stand out as an employer of choice and attract top talent.

1. Create a compelling employer brand

This involves creating a strong and attractive image of your company as an employer, highlighting your company culture, values, mission, and benefits. This can help you stand out from competitors and attract top talent that aligns with your organisation’s vision. You can then utilise online platforms and social media to showcase your company culture, values, and job openings.

2. Employee referrals

Encourage your current employees to refer their friends and colleagues. Existing colleagues are likely to recommend people that will not only add value to your organisation but will also fit into your company culture. Therefore, employee referrals can be an efficient way to find top talent that will stick around for years to come.

3. Offer flexible work arrangements

Today’s employees are increasingly seeking flexible work arrangements, such as remote work or flexible schedules. Offering these types of arrangements, where possible, can help you stand out as an employer and attract top talent who values work-life balance. Creating a positive and supportive work environment that values diversity, inclusiveness, and employee development will help you attract and retain employees. Encourage open communication, provide opportunities for growth and development, and show your employees that they are valued.

4. Use a configurable Applicant Tracking System (ATS)

If you have a small HR team and/or need to hire high volumes, implementing a configurable Applicant Tracking System (ATS) will speed up the recruitment process and satisfy any unique company needs. Many ATS tools use AI to sift through hundreds of resumes and filter out those who are most qualified. By using these systems to automate tedious parts of recruiting, you can spend your time building and nurturing relationships with the best candidates. Instead of playing phone tag with your recruits, they can use the ATS software to tell you which times work best for them and schedule their own interviews.

By using these cost-effective strategies, you can build  and retain a strong and talented team. To learn more about how Oleeo can help you achieve all the above, chat to one of our recruitment experts.
