Get recruitment right: shape the future of your business with recruiting software

Why you must hone your company's recruiting, hiring and onboarding processes.

Recruit the best with ease

Many HR professionals struggle with getting recruitment right. It’s easy to recruit the best and brightest if everyone knows your company is an excellent place to work. A 2016 SHRM/Globoforce Employee Recognition Survey showed that 36% of businesses cite employee retention as a top workforce management challenge. In order to focus on employee engagement, HR departments need to work with executive leaders to create better work cultures, improve retention rates, build new wellness and benefits packages, implement new technologies and empower their workforce.

The three most common recruitment obstacles

According to a 2015 LinkedIn worldwide survey of HR professionals, the three biggest obstacles for recruiting top talent are: finding candidates in a high-demand job pool, agreeing on compensation and facing competition from employers.

By monitoring your talent recruitment process and offering opportunities for professional development, you will naturally attract talented employees, as will those HR managers who go the extra distance to help new hires grow professionally within their roles.

How to recruit the best talent

If you want to recruit the best talent:


  • Determine what success in a role looks like before hiring someone
  • Create a positive, enthusiastic work environment
  • Embrace diversity
  • Develop a talent pipeline that builds relationships with potential future hires
  • Hire and train great managers
  • Encourage big ideas from employees
  • Listen to and give out constructive criticism
  • Offer employees exciting opportunities
  • Manage relationships with star performers in your business

How to build a winning team

Adopt a proven strategy for recruitment and get it right every time.

Reduce the time spent on admin
