Be A Better Employer

As an employer, you need to take care of the present whilst keeping an eye on the future — and that’s especially true when it comes to talent management.

Your people are the most important tool you have in your professional arsenal, so it’s vital that you attract the best on the market; but in this new digital age, are your methods still up to date?

We’ve asked some of our own branch managers for their tops tips on planning for the future of your workforce.

Getting The Most From Your Interviews

Any employer worth their salt knows that a job interview is a two-way process: the best candidates are making a decision about whether they really want to work for your company, whilst you’re making a decision about whether you really want them to. But when you do find that perfect PA, finance assistant or office manager, you want to wow them with your company culture, pay and benefits, and career progression opportunities.

In our guide to getting the most from the interview process, we share our top tips for selling your company ― and the job in question ― to potential new recruits; from tailoring your approach to the needs and aspirations of your target audience, to playing on the particular strengths of your brand.

Employer Branding

If you want to attract the cream of the crop, you need to make your company the one to work for. When you’re recruiting office support staff regardless of industry or sector, interviewees will want to know all about the personality of your business ― so make sure that it’s an attractive one.

If you’re not sure how, there’s no need to panic. We’re seasoned pros when it comes to selling an organisation to jobseekers, and we’re delighted to be passing that knowledge on to you. In our guide to employer branding, we’ll show you how to market your employer brand in a way that will help you to secure the very best candidates ― from drawing on the promise of career progression, to tailoring your approach to appeal to any audience.

 

Employee Engagement

As a savvy employer, you know how important it is to have an ultra motivated workforce: they’re far more loyal, less likely to take sick leave, and act as brilliant champions for your brand. And because we work with office support staff every day, we understand what makes them tick.

In our guide to achieving employee engagement, we give you a no-nonsense list of what to consider when you’re planning your own engagement initiative ― from creating a sense of purpose amongst your staff, to recognising their achievements with encouragement and rewards.
