🔐🔐 Security is the no.1 dynamic in recruitment right now. Inflation, squeeze on real-time earnings and the unfolding tragedy in Ukraine... everyone is looking for stability and the companies which offer and communicate this are the ones succeeding in their hiring plans.
When the FMCG market is moving this quick, and there are more vacancies than active commercial candidates, then this is something you have to face into, or be left behind. 🏇🏇
Great people are still out there and they are still looking for opportunities, but they'll be spending longer looking under the bonnet, checking out what you offer their career as a vehicle. 🚗
Here's four things you need to do to stay competitive in this market and demonstrate the security and stability your business offers:
1) Mindset 🧠 Hire with long-term careers in mind, not just to fill jobs. This puts the candidate at the centre of the process and will affect how you think and communicate
2) Culture 🧑🏿🤝🧑🏿 Involve your cultural ambassadors in showcasing your opportunity. Who embodies the progression and stability and growth that candidates want?
3) Process 🗒️ How does your process communicate your commitment? Communication, speed and insight are key to embodying your stability as a vehicle for someone's career.
4) Package 💵 Don't lowball on salary, offer competitive packages and have a strong answer for how you review performance and pay. Recognise that people are looking for more in their package just to keep up with the cost of living.
😁 Make sure everyone leaves your process knowing that you offer above-market commitment and long-term opportunity to everyone in your team. 😁
