Sourcing Strategies For A Successful Recruitment Outcome
There are a number of different approaches for you to consider when sourcing staff (outside of the usual job ad posted on a job board) Here are some steps you can add to your sourcing strategy to uncover the next addition for your team:
- Run an internal referral program - often your employees will know of other great people among their networks. Use your people to attract new talent to your team. If you are in a position to do so, offering monetary incentives such as cash bonuses or vouchers can be instrumental in the success of your referral program.
- Invest time in your business's presence on social media. Posting and talking about your brand and job vacancies is a great way to engage with your following and get the message out there when you have job opportunities.
- Employment agencies like us that provide you with a dedicated account manager to recruit for the position. A good recruitment agency draws on multiple talent sources including their own specialist job board, a database of active and passive candidates, a network of colleagues, we can also post jobs to external job boards on your behalf, and filter through all the applications that aren't suitable saving you time.
- Make sure your employment proposition stacks up. Ask yourself and people across your organisation: What is it about us that will motivate a person to move from their current organisation?
If you’re unsure how your proposition aligns against others in the market ask us for feedback - we’ll be more than happy to provide some insight and help wherever we can.
Lastly, if you have a great team, work hard to retain them. Book performance reviews to understand their motivations and aspirations. Understanding the expectations of your people can help towards mitigating the risk of losing them.
