You know by now that your organisation is only as good as the people driving it. Your talent defines how well your operation will operate, the new products you create, and how efficiently you run. In other words, recruiting, training, and managing your talent needs to be a top priority for your business. Bringing in a training and recruitment consultant, like Noel Biderman, can help you make better recruiting decisions so that you can attract talented team members and keep them loyal to your business. These are just a few ways he can help.
Help You Offer More without Paying More
Sometimes the offer isn’t in the salary, but in the perks you offer your employees. Not all perks have to cost your company top dollar. While it’s nice to have golden insurance plans, lucrative bonuses, and rich retirement plans, the truth is that many talented workers are looking for smaller benefits that matter more to them.
The strength is in striking the right balance between old school benefits and salary and the new protocol of work-life balance. Offer things like flexible work hours, the ability to work from home, and half-day Fridays – as long as goals are met. These things are especially attractive to young workers in tech fields and can make a world of difference for your recruitment efforts.
Teach You to Adjust Your Standards
Many businesses have a one-dimensional approach to hiring. Part of this is that HR personnel are taught to look for specific attributes when recruiting. Unfortunately, businesses are not one size fits all. You need to have someone who at least understands the nuances of the roles he or she is recruiting for in order to effectively recruit.
For instance, it is sometimes better to hire an employee who understands multiple computer languages to work for your organisation rather than one who specialises in only one language – even if it’s the computer language your organisation works with. Your hiring standards need to reflect that knowledge. In these cases, the broader range of experience is more beneficial than the expertise. Noel Biderman can help you set standards that reflect the goals of your business.
Create a Business Culture that Attracts Talented Employees
Real talent in any field seeks out other talent. They are driven and dedicated and thrive in environments where they are not only surrounded by talented workers, but talented management as well. Most importantly of all, though, they need to be and feel challenged in their daily work.
Offer changing roles, opportunities for advancement, and private time to pursue their own passions in the field. Your business will dominate the industry and you’ll have a well-rounded group of employees on your hand that feel respected, appreciated, and fulfilled.
Noel Biderman understand the passions that drive truly talented people to achieve and he can help you recruit accordingly. Let him help you drive your business organisation to greater success than you can currently imagine by helping you recruit the top talent in your industry.
