4 Recruitment Trends to Follow in 2019
Industry trends come and go and this year is no exception. When it comes to the restoration industry, 2019 has brought in a range of new Human Resource Management and candidate recruitment strategies with it.
Studies show that 90 percent of all corporate recruitment is candidate-driven. This implies that qualified candidates hold more power than they ever did before!
However, as important as it is for recruiters to attract the best possible pool of candidates, it’s also important for them to save costs and reduce time consumption on their strategies.
In light of these motivations, here are some trending recruitment policies to follow in 2019!
- 1.) Recruitment Marketing
This is a type of strategy that incorporates marketing tactics into the recruitment process. In other words, the focus is on attracting top talent to the company. This happens to be a highly efficient way of increasing your qualified candidate pool because it allows you to sell your organization to a candidate as if they’re looking to consume it.
- 2.) Excellent Candidate Experience
This trend is focused on improving the candidate’s perception of the company and its recruitment process because a positive experience can lead them to accept the job with less hesitation. Employers often talk about the culture, values and growth opportunities under this strategy and make their point known with an efficient and easy recruitment procedure. Many candidates are able to apply online and have the opportunity to sit for online interviews too.
- 3.) Employer Branding
This recruitment strategy is all about marketing the company’s reputation and harnessing their popularity to make the employee feel like they’re getting value by signing up with the organization.
It’s been a relatively successful strategy and research indicates that over 70 percent of candidates make their decision to apply based on how they view the employer’s reputation. So now, as science backs it, you know you can’t recruit talent without branding your company well.
- 4.) Virtual Reality Tools for Interviewing
When it comes to the future of the recruitment industry, video gaming and virtual reality tests take the lead. In fact, more than half of the respondents on LinkedIn’s study on Global Recruiting Trends said that such creative practices were crucial decision-making factors for them. Many candidates also view such interview tactics as more objective, so even if the result isn’t positive, they’ll be better able to accept it.
