The start of 2022 will be here before we know it, and many businesses are eagerly looking forward to putting the challenges of this year in the past.
As the impact of the pandemic appears to be lightening and future of work plans begin to be put into action, the promise that next year brings is top of mind for most HR and business leaders. But, before diving into the potential of a new year, employers still have plenty of time to close out the fourth quarter of 2021 on a high note.
As the pandemic has demonstrated for most organizations, a smart talent strategy can mean a significant return for the company’s bottom line; when you can get the right people into the right positions in an efficient manner, both the workforce and the employer are poised to flourish. To keep that goal in focus as we wrap up 2021, many employers are looking to temporary staffing as a means of getting qualified employees in the door and straight to work. Particularly as the busy holiday season gets underway, employers need to staff up fast and smart.
Both are goals at Integrity Staffing Solutions, where our RPO strategy allows us to expand your talent pool all while operating under your unique brand. Here’s what years of experience doing just that have taught us about the tips and tricks that can help you take your hiring to the next level:
Automate where possible
When you’re looking to boost hiring in a short timeframe, you don’t want to waste any time or staff energy on red tape. Technology can be a vital partner in this effort, as many tools on the market are designed to help employers automate the more tedious aspects of recruiting, onboarding and hiring—filling vacancies quickly while freeing up HR professionals to keep the human in HR’s work.
Focus on candidate experience
Organizations have the opportunity to set the culture right from the start of the hiring process with a seamless candidate experience. A strategy that incorporates technology, is highly personalized and offers candidate a taste of the organization’s mission and purpose can keep top talent on board.
Leverage your data
A strong people analytics approach can make the difference between hiring strategy success and failure. When employers have good data on who’s applying, who’s staying in the funnel and who’s finding success in their positions, they’re better prepared to source, recruit and hire high-quality candidates who can enable them to finish out 2021 as strong as possible.
As the last few weeks of 2021 are upon us, it may be tempting to coast into the new year—but smart employers are looking to make the most of every opportunity they have. And given the current conditions, that should mean a renewed focus on hiring top talent efficiently and effectively. With the right employees working for your company, you can finish the year confidently—and look forward to continued success in 2022.
