Thanks to Steve Jensen (or Dr J) of Impact Training for sharing this video.
From the outset, Dr J. hits the nail on the head saying that the traditional recruiting mindsets need to change. It’s not enough to simply have a job available, employers need to understand that there are more opportunities than ever out there and attracting staff requires the same approach you’d use to attract members/clients.
- Think ‘attracting’ rather than recruiting – Dr J spells it out nicely
- Be clear on what you’ll do for them as well as what you need them to do for you
- The importance of well-planned inductions and position descriptions
Only one thing missing… *cough* HealthyPeople *cough*
