Every strategy for talent acquisition in manufacturing industries has shifted. But, of course, the manufacturing industry is already familiar with the ups and downs of the economy. Still, current pandemic events have made it urgent to look into different options for helping them reach company goals.
There are ways manufacturers can help their recruiters in the challenges of needing highly-experienced workers combined with technical skills, while other companies also are competing in an already limited talent pool.
Sourcing, engaging and hiring quality talent in a trusted ecosystem
The best way of improving the hiring process for your candidate is by considering the candidate’s experience. What can you do to improve it, even if the manufacturing industry can be a tight space for sharing information?
Here are 3 ways of appealing to job seekers to consider working in your company:
1. Create a well research job description
A job description should be concise yet detailed enough to attract qualified candidates. Include education, skills, certifications, and relevant work history or achievements. Still, everything can go wrong if a detail doesn’t make sense in the description, for example, years of experience on a program that only has months of existing or knowledge on a discovery desired in the company’s lab.
2. Talk to the marketing team about using social media to highlight your company culture
Social media is an excellent tool for showcasing your company’s culture and values. By sharing images of your office space, team members, and events that reinforce these qualities can help your talent acquisition strategy if handled well.
3. Listen to feedback opportunities inside and out of the office
Know your current employees’ feedback about what type of team member they need. Listening to the team’s needs can give a glimpse of the options your department could open for your Human Resources team to thrive. So, why would there be a need to listen to feedback outside of the office? Other companies have reached third-party agencies to support their business on this task, and you could do it too.
