As the country navigates the “new normal” of a post-COVID world, business sectors are opening up again. Having an established candidate pipeline will reduce the stress of ramping up hiring efforts and ensure that you have a pool of talent interested in your organization. Where should you start?
Start by defining who you need, and when you need them. Based on those talent areas and timeline, build a strategy to reach both passive and active job seekers. If you anticipate having several months before your first hires need to be made, then start your advertising with a focus on passive talent to increase brand awareness within your target demographic. As your timeline progresses, ensure that programmatic job advertising becomes part of the strategy to engage with active job seekers. These job seekers will be high converters but also eager to begin work right away.
Tap into your own talent! Consider boomerang campaigns to bring back former employees. And leverage your existing employees to implement a strong Employee Referral Program. Invite support from current employees to find candidates, and reward those employees for their help. Not only will you add qualified candidates that are a good cultural fit to your pipeline, but you’ll also build allegiance with your current employees.
