Pete Sanders, Co-Founder and Group MD at The identifi Group, joins me to discuss the challenge of recruitment in a world where the workforce is so dispersed. 

This is something that so many companies are struggling with right now, despite the fact that arguably, it should be easier than ever to recruit when remote working is the norm. So, what really is getting in the way?

We explore:

  • How the 'dis-connect' can enhance diversity
  • How open companies are to exploring the real reason for needing to recruit
  • How companies can position themselves as meaningful organisations to engage with, in a digital world
  • How to win the race to recruit talent, faced with the dilemma about skill sets vs cultural fit
  • How to provide a consistent candidate experience so that companies demonstrate their care from the outset.

Pete explains how his company drives a partnership that motivates employers and recruiters to do the right thing by those looking for work. A Candidate Charter shapes an experience that is meaningful and positive, even when candidates are not selected for the role. 

If you're not sure the effort is worth it, listen to what Pete has to say about their stats (based on client feedback) compared to the industry average! The recruitment process really is a significant part of employee experience and your brand.

How confident are you that prospective employees, who are then rejected, would talk favourably about you and promote your company?

If you would like help to understand and develop your purpose, culture, and people, get in touch with Pete or It's Time for Change.
