While many companies and workers might slow down for the holiday season, there are some that don’t want to come down to the holiday halt.
There are some companies that have seasonal peaks that will need to bring on a large amount of workers. Then there are other companies that are growing and would rather not waste time in building their team for success.
No matter what company you’re in, here are some ways to take advantage of the holiday season to recruit the talent you need.
Why it’s an Opportunistic Time to Recruit
Since so many people excitedly wind down at the end of the year, your recruitment efforts may actually attract the best, most savvy candidates.
How to Recruit During the Holidays to Find Qualified Talent
Get Your Team Organized
If you’re ready to take advantage of the holiday season to add skilled workers to your team, you’re going to have to let your team in on your plans. Ask for vacation schedules and commitments so that when you want to bring in a promising candidate for an interview, you can have the right personnel in the office.
Use a Variety of Platforms to Recruit
When you’re looking for talent to bring on your team, don’t forget to get on a variety of platforms so you can find eager candidates, no matter where they are. Even if someone is actively searching for a job during the holidays, they’re still busy with other festivities, so maybe they’re not devoting as much time to their search as they’d like to. Go the extra mile to find the best candidate!
Make Your Offers Attractive
‘Tis the season of giving, right? Let your job offer say the same thing! If and when you find a potential employee that’s right for the job, don’t hesitate to make them an offer. It’s recommended that your offer during the holiday season is an attractive one. Since people take time from enjoying holiday preparations and festivities for interviews, experts say you should compensate them accordingly. Higher wages, signing bonus, and attractive benefits are all options you can consider to make your offers exciting.
