Hiring a new employee is a demanding task. The person not only has to have the right skills, but they also have to fit into the company culture. To assess a candidate’s cultural fit, you must share the same values. Therefore, it is important that before starting your recruitment process, you have mapped out your company values that a new employee must carry further.
In today’s world, recruiting is a two-way street – during interviews, you are not only assessing the candidates, but the candidate is also assessing you as a potential employer. This means that the competition for the best candidates is fierce.
To stand out from other employers, you must map out your employer value proposition. Why should anyone want to join your company? Besides salary, vacation days and sports compensation, is there anything else you can offer candidates? For example, you can offer candidates extra value by giving them a chance to learn from well-respected leaders, join a team of high-performing people or build something from scratch. It is important to stand out from the crowd and provide candidates with something that other employers can’t.
