The global pandemic has changed the world of work. Known as the great resignation, people are leaving their jobs in droves to pursue new occupations. So where does this leave you when trying to recruit for your business?

The fact is that it is harder than ever to find and retain the people you need. Read on as we give our ways you can begin to find quality employees.

Look Internally

The best employees could be right under your nose. Check your existing pool of talent and see who has the right experience, strengths, and qualifications for the role. You then just need to check if they would be interested in promotion or what their future plans are.

There are a number of advantages to this method. You may not need to give them as much training or onboarding as new employees. In addition, it may prevent them from leaving if they were already looking for a new challenge, reducing employee turnover.

Create A Great Work Culture

One way to attract new employees is to get people to want to work for you. If you have a great working culture, you will have people lining up to apply for vacancies. This means you can pick and choose from the best talent.

There are a number of ways you can build a great company culture. Make sure you reward your staff for hard work or long hours. They should feel valued and you should listen to what they have to say.

Don’t forget to showcase your company culture either. Social media is a great place to show achievements, both business and personal, within your staff.

Get Referrals

Your current employees are a goldmine of information. If you can not find anyone amongst them to fill the position, ask if they know anyone who will.

People have friends, ex-colleagues, and others they know through social media. These people may be looking for a move and could fit the profile.

Hire A Recruitment Agency

If you don’t have the time or resources to conduct a hiring process, then get someone to do it for you. Recruitment agencies specialize in finding new employees and they can bring several advantages.

The first is that they already have a bank of candidates, ready to apply for the role. If they don’t, they will actively go out and find someone. This leaves you free to concentrate on building your business and pursuing sales.

Take To Social Media

Social media platforms provide a number of ways you can post jobs. Some platforms such as LinkedIn even allow you to browse CVs that have been posted online. Even Facebook has powerful targeting features that will let you search for potential candidates based on a number of factors.

Finding Quality Employees

Now you know how to find quality employees, you just need to retain them. Build a positive company culture, possibly a hybrid with remote working. Soon, employees should come to you.
