Attracting and retaining talent is crucial for any company. For many employees, they require several factors that come together to create the best work environment, whether they are physically in the office or working remotely. In fact, our Job Market Report found that one of the top 10 reasons employees are switching jobs is for better company culture. To boost your company culture for the better, use a local talent recruiter to hand pick your next hire.By working with a job talent agency, your organization can better evolve your company culture and in turn, attract and retain top talent, finetune your employer brand and find talent to set you up for success.

The candidate experience matters

Hiring managers say that when it comes to talent acquisition, poor candidate experience is something that they struggle with. Working with a local recruiter, allows the recruiter to be the first to screen and interview candidates, ensuring that their candidate experience is off to a great start. Being able to meet with candidates in person, local recruiters are better able to tailor specific talent to your team based on culture and skills needed. This is especially important when it comes to streamlining the candidate experience for multiple candidates.

Skip the phone call, let’s get lunch

Utilizing a local recruiter provides you one on one access to the team dedicated to finding your talent.  This allows for more time to get to know each other and will give the recruiter the ability to better understand your team needs and how they recruit talent. The war for talent is only getting more intense, requiring companies to change some things up. If your company wants to compete in today’s talent driven hiring market, meeting one on one with a local talent recruiter is a way to gain a leg up. Recruiters are experts when it comes to what talent wants and they can also give you the inside scoop on what other companies are doing. This is especially important in today’s hybrid online-in person job market. Our recruitment agency works to hire talent and meets them where they are most comfortable - whether it’s online, outdoors for lunch, or inside for a one-on-one meeting. Our talent recruitment goes the extra mile. 

Give us the grand tour

Candidates are beginning to care more about benefits, and companies who are not improving benefits run the risk of losing talent, both new and current. While healthcare is one of the top concerns talent have this year, perks are equally as important. When going up against the 42% of companies that provide snacks, the 42% offering flex-time or telecommuting options, and the 20% with on-site fitness facilities, it’s important to have a talent recruiter that can vouch for your business.  If they have been to your office and can fully describe the culture and unique offerings to candidates, you’ll have a better shot at standing up against the competition.
