From this, a new challenge for businesses was born: The war for talent. Now in 2023, businesses must fight for the most qualified candidates and are often left searching for months on end—especially for finance-related positions. See how our Recruitment Services<\/a> can give your business a competitive talent market advantage in 2023.\n \n [zone_spacer spacer=\"md\"]\n <\/p>

Employee Motivations<\/h3>

\n [zone_spacer spacer=\"sm\"]\n \n In the past, competitive compensation was enough to attract top talent. However, with remote work becoming significantly more prevalent, work-life balance is top of mind for job seekers.\n \n Employees now expect a personalized experience that meets their needs at every stage of their careers. This begins with the hiring and onboarding processes and extends across all touchpoints. Businesses need a way to become extremely involved with the candidates they’re pursuing and engage with them on a high frequency basis.\n \n [zone_spacer spacer=\"md\"]\n <\/p>

Current Hiring Processes Aren’t Cutting It<\/h3>

\n [zone_spacer spacer=\"sm\"]\n \n People are rejecting jobs based on the quality of the recruitment process. It is extremely important to invest time into your recruitment efforts. The basic hands-free recruitment strategies are no longer going to be effective. The three triggers for candidate role rejection are:\n <\/p>

\n Lack of or delayed communication<\/li>\n Little transparency in selection criteria<\/li>\n Time taken for interviews<\/li>\n <\/ol>

\n The customized approach our talent acquisition specialists take ensures that no job seekers slip away. Because of our active communication and hands-on process, we follow through on our placements. Thoughtful and personalized recruitment processes can be a differentiator in attracting and retaining talent. Businesses need to be more strategic when it comes to hiring in order to reduce turnover and dissatisfaction. When it comes to executive level finance related roles, if an employer is intentional with their recruiting efforts, they are more likely to acquire qualified talent that aligns with company values.\n \n [zone_spacer spacer=\"md\"]\n <\/p>
