Are you a company filling positions in Boca Raton? Is your goal for 2019 to build out your teams? If you want the best workers this year, here are the top 5 hiring trends we at Sloane Staffing predict for 2019.
Build A Talent Pool. A talent pool is a group of highly-qualified candidates who are interested in working for your company. This will ensure you always have access to candidate’s updated resumes. Read more about how to create one here.
Streamline Your Application Process. Quality candidates will drop out of your application process if it’s too long and confusing. Save the questions for the in-person interview, getting them in the door is most important. Make it easy for them to apply for jobs. Nowadays, people don’t want to fill out pages and pages of application forms. They want fast results and to be able to apply for jobs on the move. Make sure they are able to apply for your jobs on their mobile devices.
Candidates Are No Longer Hired Based Off Of Their Degrees. Times have changed. In some cases, experience is preferred over an actual degree. One survey found that 45.8% of hiring professionals measure success on candidate experience. Take that into consideration.
Use Social Media As A Recruiting Tool. With LinkedIn and LinkedIn recruiter being the obvious ones, social media is a great way to attract good candidates. We pick up a lot of talent through both LinkedIn and Facebook.
Target Passive Candidates. One of the biggest trends we see is that the best candidates are not always necessarily open to new opportunities. However, once we explain the position and the benefits of the new job, they start to see it as their next role. Hire a staffing agency to help you sell these top candidates. Try re-targeting with an email campaign.
