Most HR specialists agree they want to get better at talent acquisition. In a 2016 SHRM survey of more than 2,300 HR professionals, respondents said recruitment was their top business/HR challenge, ahead of compliance, employee training and compensation/benefits. Finding the time to implement these leading strategies is the bigger challenge.
This week on #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro and #SHRM17 Blogger, welcomed special guest, Tony Lee, Vice President of Editorial for the Society for Human Resource Management and a recognized authority on recruitment trends. They discussed a variety of important aspects related to effective recruiting. Tony also gave the TalentCulture community a sneak peek of #SHRM17, happening in New Orleans on June 18 – 21.
Here are a few key points Tony shared:
- It’s one thing to gather HR metrics. But you need analytics to gain useful insights
- Analytics can tell the story of your employee recruitment program.
- Recruiters: Be transparent with salaries. Post salaries with your job postings
- Retention is highest in environments where employees are happy to come to work every day.
