For most organizations, recruiting top talent is no piece of cake, but for the high-volume recruiters, it’s even more daunting. Consider that the average job posting garners 50 applicants, while in high-volume recruitment, job postings draw 250 applicants (source: Jobvite). What resources can you use to give you a leg up on your substantial task? We have a few insights to share:

Leverage your brand

“Your brand is the single most important investment you can make in your business.” (Steve Forbes) The same holds true when it comes to your investment in recruitment branding.

  • Promote your employment brand, relentlessly on all communications, including social: Glassdoor, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. Share both personal and professional experiences. It’s what connects us to our world.
  • Give people a reason to connect with your employment brand through all of your media channels—and they’ll share your organic, clever content with their friends and colleagues.
  • Be sure to promote your organization’s unique employment value proposition at every touchpoint with consistency in style, tone and messaging.

Your employment brand is key to communicating what it is like to work for your company – and why candidates should join you. However, we often find that organizations let their brands stray from the original purpose. Here, we explore a few scenarios where employment brands can become disconnected from the reality of your employment proposition.

1. Not Telling Your Story
If you find that when you interview candidates they don’t really know who you are, what you do or what your organization is like as an employer, you need to create an employment brand to tell them.

Many companies use bland phrases, stock photos and clichéd copy on their career sites and marketing communications, failing to set themselves apart from competitors. Your employment brand should be personal to your organization, focusing on what sets you apart and why people would enjoy building an ongoing career with you.
