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.

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. 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 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.
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 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.
