Four Trends Changing How You Hire in 2019 and Beyond

Technology has seen quite a few rapid shifts and adaptations over the last few years, and as a result it is constantly changing the way we go about hiring and seeking out potential new candidates.

The key is adapting your business to fit the trends and proactively pursuing skilled individuals that can not only fill a vacant position, but can also bring something unique to the table that ultimately drives your company forward.

Using a people-first approach, our recruitment team at BullsEye has their finger on the pulse of the industry, allowing us to create a tailored recruiting process that meets the needs of your business and taps into your target talent pool.

Here are four trends to keep an eye on when you’re looking for your next successful hire.

Recruitment Marketing & Business Branding

Your business is a public brand, and you need to think of your entire audience as a pool of potential employees, along with customers or clients of course. Think about it this way – most smart, ambitious job seekers are constantly researching various companies and it’s management’s reputation online. They want to know that they are receiving an opportunity to not only become a part of a ground-breaking company, but that they will be able to grow their career, while contributing to the success of the business.

Having a consistent brand mixed with a strong recruitment strategy that communicates your employee value proposition will attract, engage, and convert quality candidates and attract your ideal employee.

Social Recruiting

In today’s day and age, you need to think beyond job boards, even LinkedIn. Taking advantage of ad space on social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram, will help you target potential candidates and begin building a relationship with them. For most positions, it’s paramount for quality candidates to have a robust social media presence and personal brand visible online. As an employer, this gives you a snapshot into who they are as a person and if they would be a good fit amongst your team, while also meeting the position requirements.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Recruitment

This is a relatively new tool in the job force market, but it’s making a large impact in the industry. For those who haven’t been privy to this new software, AI Recruitment is an automated system that screens candidates and narrows down a large applicant pool. This is meant to decrease these high-volume tasks by eliminating the manual screening process and replacing it with a more efficient and streamlined process.

Use Technology and Personality Assessments

It’s hard to really know what someone will be like until you work directly with him or her, but luckily there are assessment tools out there that can help simplify the equation. At BullsEye Recruitment, we use the DISC Behavioural Assessment Tool to help understand a candidate’s personality. This includes getting to know their personal work style, response to stress, and leadership abilities. Essentially, it helps us help you, attract and retain quality candidates to create a high performance team to take your business to the next level.

Remember, there is nothing like a face-to-face interview to know if you have a true connection. Utilizing tools, such as Skype or Zoom, makes it easier to get to know each potential candidate on a more personal level, to see how they will fit into the culture and atmosphere of your company.

As you think about these trends, know that you don’t have to tackle them alone. If you’re ready to begin searching for your next successful hire, we can support you through every stage of your recruitment journey.
