ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, December 28, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the current employment market, finding the perfect candidate for a job is more than just understanding their skills and qualifications. It’s about finding someone who will bring a unique perspective to the team while resonating with the company’s values.
That’s why at JUMP Recruits, we put a huge emphasis on building a community-centered recruitment process. This includes looking beyond the traditional resumes and screenings by getting to know our applicants on a personal level, placing greater importance on their values, personalities, and goals. This helps organizations find candidates who are not only qualified but aligned with their mission and purpose, ultimately making them an excellent match for the selected team.
This concept of community building involves taking a holistic approach to talent acquisition. An approach that we not only implement for our clients but also within Jump Recruits.
These strategies include:
Understanding the Needs of the Talent
Understanding the Candidate Journey
Aligning Cultural Imperatives
Sharing these strategies will help to redefine a company’s talent acquisition strategy and Jump Recruits provides open access to multiple white papers and e-books that cover each specific talent acquisition strategy individually.
Understanding Talent Needs
Ensuring the needs of talent are met is one of the most important steps to take when it comes to diversity retention and building community. When potential team members see that their needs are met, they are more likely to feel connected, engaged, and valued within the organization. Some of the basic needs of talent include:
Belongingness and Love Needs
Meeting the needs of talent helps to build a culture of trust, inclusion, and mutual respect between team members. This creates a healthy environment for communication and collaboration, which in turn, fosters the development of meaningful relationships within the community.
Follow Candidate Journey
When it comes to finding, hiring, and retaining diverse talent, creating an experience that will help them envision professional development opportunities they can’t access anywhere else will be invaluable. That’s why we believe that creating an outstanding work experience lies at the heart of driving organizational growth and development. From recruiting diverse talent to diversity retention, organizations need to offer an opportunity where individuals can truly explore their potential.
The steps each candidate takes when they engage with a new organization include:
Step 1: Attract
Here’s the first opportunity to increase brand awareness as an employer. During this step, it’s important to give potential talent reasons to consider the intended organization. These opportunities can include curated events, social media presence, and showcasing diverse talent within the collateral.
