Creating talent pools for your company in 2021

Today’s recruiting environment has never been more challenging!

2020 has turned the recruitment landscape on it’s head and despite record levels of unemployment in the UK, people planning and recruitment preparation has never been more crucial:

  • Candidate quality and relevance is now an even bigger issue, with advertised vacancies attracting large numbers of unsuitable applications.
  • Candidates are now very much more discerning about who they will and will not want to work for going forward, searching for a committed long term employer, who’s values and mission they can buy into and become a valued and rewarded team member.
  • Candidates will not move jobs as fluidly as before, valuing certainty over advancement until there is more stability within the economy.

How can we help with people planning and creating a talent pool?

We will work with you to understand your potential future recruitment in the context of your business planning. We will map your peaks and troughs throughout the year and create profiles of the skills you will need.

Our team will then actively search for and create a talent ‘pool’ for your roles, who have the experience, qualifications and aptitude you will be needing.

Once you are ready to recruit, we can fast track your interviewing having already identified and nurtured a hit list of suitable and able candidates.

How can you help yourself in creating a talent pool?

Encourage and reward your existing team to share the benefits of working with you with their family, friends and suppliers. Hearing about what a great place to work  you are is invaluable in attracting new talent.

Share your company insights – on your company social media platforms, on your website, in your email footers and in your networks. The old adage is people love people and its even more relevant today with the prevalence of remote working, we love to connect and understand more about each other so make sure you are posting all the interesting ways you help and support your team and each other to bring your company ‘alive’ to attract new talent.
