You are listening to Trinity. Employment’s a player matchmaker podcast, starring your host and the cofounder of Trinity employment specialists, Cory Minter. Hello, and welcome back to the A-player matchmakers, where we’re always trying to find different ways to add value to job seekers and employers. And the title of this podcast is 2020.
Hiring challenges and solutions. I, uh, spent a lot of time talking in the last one about the top four, um, in our last podcast, this is part two, and it is building a strong employer brand, um, a lack of qualified candidates, which is a really big thing. Expanding candidate reach and targeting passive candidates were the top four that I addressed in our first part of this. And this is part two. Um, trying to find employees right now is very, very difficult because of COVID is the craziest time I’ve ever had in trying to hire. And it’s, it’s really a trying time for any company. There are very few companies that are having difficulties with this right now because we don’t even know when we should begin hiring back. You know Tulsa Medical Staffing is crucial, I mean, we here at Trinity, we just hired back in another recruiter because business is starting to pick up. Um, we hope that it doesn’t fall out again, but even in the middle of this, you know, this is a true reality is in the middle of bringing back somebody expecting that the economy is going to continue to grow because we’re starting to see an influx in, in needs in our company. Well, at the same time, we’re bringing someone back with the news media and everyone else is saying, we’re getting ready to shut down the economy. Again,
We don’t know what to believe. We don’t know who to believe, and it doesn’t matter which side of the political aisle you’re on. Um, it’s just hard to see who’s telling you the truth about the real situation and what is just being brought up because we have an election cycle. And so I think I speak for a lot of people that I can not wait until November comes and goes so that we can stop all of this bickering. But right now, trying to find talent if you want the best Tulsa Medical Staffing today, I mentioned to you, the top four, number five is attracting the right job candidates. Glassdoor reported that 76% of hiring managers admit attracting the right job candidates is their greatest challenge. They’re wasting their precious time by going through tons of applications from candidates that are just not qualified or a good fit for their open positions. So, you know, what should companies do you really need to refine hiring process in order to attract the right type of candidates from the start you need to attract the right job candidates to apply and discourage the rest from applying.
Well, you need to have precise job requirements, very detailed job descriptions. And not only that, a lot of these websites, by the way, will give you a lot more attention. If you have a really detailed job description and make sure that I would suggest that you have the wage on there. If you need to put a range, you can do a range. That’s fine, but you really need to have a good group of detail. In there, you need to be able to write about your company culture and present yourself in everyday life at your office. We try to do that through social media and make that the best Tulsa Medical Staffing for you, uh, you know, available so people can see what it’s like to work here. Um, but a lot of times Google reviews, Glassdoor reviews. We, we already mentioned this earlier. That’s going to help people to understand what other people think and say and believe about your company.
And, and it’s important that you ask for reviews from your employees and to write about it. So it’s really important that you attract the right job candidates. Number six, building talent pools, proactively a talent pool is a database of candidates interested in working for your company. Um, and by building a talent pool, you can fill your job descriptions and positions, um, with less time and less money. But it’s really important that you do that. Um, you know, um, one of the ways that you can do is, you know, we have an applicant tracking system and we keep every candidate that comes in there and we make, we have it run through, uh, uh, parsing pro with the best Tulsa Medical Staffing around, parsing program that makes it searchable by words. You know, you can do, there are services out there that you can provide that you can do that with. And, and rather than just taking those resumes that you receive, you can run it through a parsing service.
Another way that you can do that is just using a staffing firm. Some of the staffing firms like Trinity employment specialists can really help you to have access to people like that. Um, and they have their own talent pool that they can pull from. And if you are a company that has, you know, you just don’t have years of doing this, um, it would really help you to be able to jump into a group that has been doing this for years. So check into using staffing firms and staffing agencies for that number seven inefficient talent sourcing. So the right candidates they’re out there with our Tulsa Medical Staffing services, no question they’re out there. You just got to go get them, but without an efficient talent sourcing strategy, HR professionals spend countless hours and invest tons of time and effort trying to find them with poor results and recruiters find it very difficult to find high-quality candidates and obtain their resumes and in contact information, you’ve got to know how to source candidates and go out and get them.
And we just talked about passive candidates, not long ago, you better know how to go get passive candidates, because right now in the employment market, the people who are on unemployment, they’re likely to sit in there, which by the way, I don’t know if this is still on the unemployment site or not, but I will tell you that somebody filed for unemployment and on an unemployment claim in my name at the very beginning of this. And so I had to call the unemployment office to, uh, try to notify the authorities that somebody has followed from an unemployment claim for great levels of Tulsa Medical Staffing today. I received a check in the mail and I just wanted to make sure that there wasn’t any kind of fraud and that they were aware of this. And so it was a big deal. I had to, it took me a long time to do this.
Um, and I, the reason it took me a long time is that everyone was trying to file for unemployment. And I had to spend a good deal of time on hold on the unemployment site. Well, let me tell you what they said to everyone. I heard at least 20 times while I was on the phone, you do not have to do a job search during this time. Do not do a job search during this time you get the best Tulsa Medical Staffing by far. And if you have in, when you get to the point where it says, have you done the required number of job searches always put yes, because the number of job requirements that you are expected to conduct is zero. Now, I don’t know why you would make this abundantly clear, whoever put this on there.
If you are a business owner, or if you are a productive citizen, it saying this to people over and over and over again, that you do not have to do a job search. You do not have to do a job search. You do not have to do a job search. Oh, and by the way, we are going to pay you the equivalency of $50,000 a year. Um, that makes it hard for employers to recruit from. I wished I wouldn’t have heard that, but I did, but, um, you, you’re going to have to address these things. Um, number eight, providing a memorable and a positive candidate experience is very, very important. Um, uh, when you go after employees, if they spend more time, if they spend more than, I think it was eight minutes, filling out a job application on your website and checking out our Tulsa Medical Staffing today, they’re gone according to the statistics, and you’ve got to get your application process to be very user-friendly career arcs candidate experience study revealed that nearly 60% of job seekers had a poor candidate experience. 63% of these candidates rejected a job offer. Uh, according to software advice, 72% of these candidates tell others about it either online or in-person or in-person and 64% of these candidates stop purchasing goods and services from that employer. Um, in short, if you don’t improve your candidate experience, you risk losing not only that particular candidate but also your reputation, which we talked about on the number one thing is your candidate brain or your branding. It’s really important that you deal with this. Um,
And so I agree, courage, anyone to really think about your candidate experience in your application process, people are thinking about it, they’re talking about it, and they’re making decisions based on it. If trendy can help you in any way, we can help you with your employer branding, um, because you will go through our system.
