Winning recruitment strategies

Learn more about:

In today’s low unemployment environment, relying on traditional recruitment methods such as newspaper classified advertising is no longer enough. You need to make employee recruitment part of your overall strategic plan, says Jude Werra, a Brookfield executive search consultant. Here’s a few suggestions to develop a pipeline:

  • Keep tabs on who is available in your industry by networking through industry associations and other business organizations.
  • Develop your own in-house “farm team” of college interns. This is a way to get young people trained in your company’s culture, giving you the competitive edge over others who might be recruiting the same candidate.
  • Segment employees into where they are in their career cycle, then gear your search and recruitment methods to where they are in their respective careers.
  • Develop consistent interviewing practices by employing members of your management team. The goal is to find quality employees, and this is another way to ensure a good hire.
