Attracting and Retaining Top Talent
HRTalks expert panel weighs in on best practices for recruiting the most qualified candidates.
HR professionals are faced with a challenging task in this era of flexible schedules and remote workspaces — how do you recruit, and retain, top talent in a global pool of candidates? Technology has made it all too easy for the most highly qualified candidates to shop their skills to companies located far outside their local areas, giving them a big advantage in the marketplace.
Desirable headquarters location isn’t the perk it once was. Job seekers on the West Coast, for example, can expand their search to companies anywhere in the U.S., throughout the Pacific Rim and beyond. And competition is due to intensify. By most projections, the economy is poised for significant expansion once the COVID pandemic is over, with potentially explosive job growth.
Regardless of the economic climate, employee retention is always important to the bottom line. High turnover is expensive and prevents a company from moving forward. It dulls competitive advantage along with company morale. It’s simply a bad look all the way around.
So how do companies attract and retain top talent in 2021 and beyond? Here are five keys to success, shared by an expert panel on HRTalks, a free webinar series sponsored by UCI DCE.
