Find out if your company attracts top talent and make your organization a magnet for the top talent in your field.
Competition is everywhere
Today’s competitive recruitment environment means that the ability to attract and retain top talent is harder than ever. More and more companies realize that part of bringing in the right people starts with having the right culture. In fact, most recruiters agree that workplace culture is a deciding factor in helping candidates choose you.
Create the best company culture possible
Well, it starts with creating a company culture that is based on the values and beliefs of the company’s founders. In short, that means that the top-level execs need to walk the walk and talk the talk when it comes to your culture. Company culture covers everything from what’s accepted and what’s not to how interactions between management and staff should be handled.
Don’t forget about the actual office
The best company culture also takes into account the actual workplace environment – what your office looks like, the amenities you offer, and anything else that might encourage a top-level applicant to come to you instead of your competitor.
Look toward the future
To do this, you need a compelling business strategy that’s built on innovation. When you align your culture with a strategy, you’re signaling to the best workers that you understand not only where you are but also where you want to go.
Make sure everyone is on the same page
Clear core values are essential here. That way, there’s no room for ambiguity or confusion. An applicant wants to know precisely the kind of company they’re aligning themselves with, and there’s no easier way to do that than with an easy to understand value statement.
If your company doesn’t have an established learning and development program, you need to start one immediately. L&D is often a critical factor for applicants to choose your company, and younger workers want to know they’re going to continue to learn once they’re a part of the team. This also helps you better manage your existing talent, since it allows you to promote from within.
