We can enhance your company's productivity and performance by helping you improve your Talent Acquisition Strategy and Employee Value Proposition (EVP).
Recruit & Retain Better Talent
The most important factor in the success of your business is the quality of the people that work there. For your business to maximise its success, you need people with right skills/experience/values/attitude in the right roles. There are many ways in which your business can recruit and retain better talent – every company in the world can improve its talent acquisition in some capacity.
To support your business in this area, we must first understand the following:
- Who are the star performers in your business and where did they come from?
- How were they recruited?
- What is their background?
- What is their personality type?
- What motivates them?
- What are the key factors that make them star performers?
In order for your business to attract, recruit & retain the best talent in your sector, there must be reasons for the best people to choose to work for your business ahead of your competitors….and stay there. This doesn’t always have to be salary related – it could be that you have a great company culture, a brilliant reputation for personal and professional development, a great staff benefits package, a collaborative team culture where everyone feels highly valued etc. We will talk through all of the above in detail with you and put some recommendations and new processes in place that will help you work towards becoming an employer of choice.
Enhance your Employee Value Proposition (EVP)
EVP relates to the company’s salary, compensation and benefits you pay employees in exchange for their skills, experience and productivity that further delivers the company’s business goals, mission, purpose and values.
Your EVP, in tandem with your Employer Brand, will be the determining factor in retaining or losing talent from your organisation.
EVP encompasses, but is not limited to:
- Bonus / Commission
- Company Car
- Laptop / Mobile Phone / Tablet
- Health Insurance
- Flexible Working
- Company Culture
We will review your company’s existing EVP, talking you through any particular strengths & weaknesses and then put a plan in place to make improvements where needed and set a timeframe for future EVP reviews to be conducted.
Reduce Staff Turnover
Just as many companies focus on gaining new business, rather than retaining their existing customers; employers often have a similar short-sighted approach to retaining their best talent.
Often, it’s not until an employee hands in their notice, that the employer acknowledges their value to the business and makes a counter-offer in the hope of persuading them to stay on – this is rarely effective and statistics suggest than an employee who accepts a counter-offer rarely stays beyond a further six months.
There are a number of strategies that an employer can put in place to reduce staff turnover; much of which will focus on improving their EVP (as covered above). We will review your company’s existing staff turnover; looking in particular at the following areas over the last 12 months:
- Leaver numbers
- Leaver reasons
- Average length of service of leavers and existing employees
- Staff satisfaction levels
- Existing EVP
Once we have reviewed the above, we will put strategies in place to reduce the level of staff turnover and improve your staff satisfaction levels.
We work on an 'as and when' needed basis to discover the best talent for your company. Therefore, you only pay for our services when you need them.
Although we believe a retained partnership is the best approach to improving your talent acquisition and HR in the long-term, we appreciate that some clients prefer to purchase outsourced Recruitment support on a contingency basis, rather than commit to anything long-term.
