Recruit the bestMany 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. For example, SHRM recently released its annual 2016 SHRM/ Globoforce Employee Recognition Survey, which showed that 36% of organizations 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 programs, 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 attracting 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.
