Attract the Best Candidates: Market Your Opportunity to Beat the Competition

Our clients have shared that a part of their plan to sustain during the recession had been to downsize. And that now they are working towards growth as a strategy. Because productivity is maxed out, they need to hire highly productive key talent. Unfortunately their competitors have the same plan to hire the same great person, which means that anyone who is good at what they do is getting hired quicker than ever before.

Amidst a talent shortage and a skills gap, 98% of employers surveyed said their unfilled job openings are causing a tangible negative impact.

These factors have led to a competitive hiring environment, where employers realize they have to market themselves to attract qualified talent over their competitors and hire faster than ever before. The first step in marketing yourself is to create a marketing plan about your great opportunity that answers the candidate’s main question: What’s in it for me (WIFM).

This marketing plan is often called an Employer Value Proposition.

 IT’S ALL ABOUT THE “W.I.F.M.”
