The Decision Toolbox recruitment team recently shared some insights with ZipRecruiter.com on ways to attract great candidates.

Excerpts from the article:

Woo Candidates

It’s an equation, says Jennifer Bensusen, Technology Lead/Recruitment Partner at Decision Toolbox, a national recruitment firm that works with companies large and small across the country.

“The first thing HR needs to do is come up with a compelling message to woo talent,” says Bensusen “Candidates are now faced with lots of choices in the marketplace, just as they are trying to differentiate themselves, and so should the employer.  The strong, A-list talent, want to know what’s in it for them? Skills are a match, so why should they leave a current role to come and join the ranks at a new company?”

Make the Interview Process Fantastic

Top candidates are reviewing many different organizations and will make a decision based on their experiences and the individuals they meet, says Elizabeth Morris, Recruitment Partner at Decision Toolbox.

To make the process great from the candidate perspective, consider the following, says Morris:

Be honest: While it’s important to sell the opportunity and the company, top candidates will be interested in and inspired by the challenges they will have the opportunity to solve.

Be interesting: You don’t want to hire robots, and top candidates certainly don’t want to work with robots so show them the real people they are going to be collaborating with and excite them with the team.

Be clear: Make sure all the stakeholders in the hiring process are on the same page as far as the expectations for the position.

Be respectful: The hiring process is the first taste a candidate gets of what it will be like to work at your company and the current team quality.  Be sure to respect candidates’ time, be responsive, and treat them the way you would want them to treat your best customers.
