The Art of Attracting Top Talent: Strategies for Hiring Success

You need to hire and you want nothing but the best. This makes sense, because top talent has the skills and desire to propel your company to the top.

The only thing is, everyone wants to hire these people. This means you need a plan to attract top talent and get them to choose your team. Use these hiring strategies to find success.

Pay Competitive Salaries

Top talent isn’t willing to work for pennies. These people have their choice of employer, so if the salary you’re offering is below market rate, they’ll probably pass.

Not sure how your salaries compare to similar jobs in your local area? Use data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to gauge average salaries. If you find you’re underpaying, try to find room in the budget to bridge the gap.

Offer Outstanding Benefits

Money isn’t the only form of compensation that matters. If you don’t offer compelling benefits, your competitors will be more than happy to do so.

This might involve unlimited paid time off, 100% paid healthcare premiums, a pet-friendly workplace, onsite childcare or flexible working arrangements. Take a look at what your competitors offer and survey existing employees to ensure you’re providing benefits that would be hard to pass up.

Write Compelling Job Descriptions

The best and brightest workers aren’t just looking to earn a paycheck — they want to make a difference. This means they’ll be carefully combing your job descriptions to learn as much as possible, including day-to-day responsibilities, goals associated with the position and required skills.

If the job description is outdated or written in a non-compelling manner, they’ll quickly move on to the next. Therefore, rewriting this content from scratch each time you need to fill the position is a must.

Don’t Go It Alone

If you’ve always handled hiring internally, you might think you have it covered. However, working with a staffing firm can take your hiring to the next level.

Since recruiters hire for a living, they know exactly where to find top talent. In fact, they might already be connected to your next great hire. They’ll handle every aspect of the hiring process for you — including writing job descriptions — so you can focus on running your business. This will also decrease your time to hire, increasing your chances of getting top talent on your team.
