Ep. 48: How do you win the war on talent? Tips from Bryan Chaney at Indeed

In the war of attracting and retaining top talents, companies must now focus on their employee experience as a differentiator to remain competitive. Talent is not only critical, but scarce. Talent attraction and retaining talent is a top priority; however companies still struggle to fill skilled positions.

The job advertising & application process is a sensitive process involving 95% complete rejection and usually only 1% hired. How you treat the 95% when you splurge ads on LinkedIn that attract 500+ applications is kind of important. If you do that 30 times a year, that’s well over 10,000 people your business and brand is saying ‘no’ to, if you are saying anything at all…

Telling your organization’s story to job candidates in a genuine and engaging way is not only a differentiator, but it’s the reflection of what your company’s culture really is.

Organizations often overlook the importance of building a positive candidate experience, thinking that they are in the driver’s seat when it comes to recruiting. It’s a mistake.
