Best Strategies for Recruiting Passive Talent

December 20th, 2019

If you’re having a hard time filling your open positions, it’s easy to get frustrated. After all, most often the perfect job candidates are already employed. This doesn’t mean all of these candidates are perfectly happy at their current job and wouldn’t switch for the right opportunity. 

To find passive talent to fill your open positions, you need to create a separate hiring strategy. While this may seem like a lot of work upfront, it’s worth it to find the right candidate. 

4 Strategic Ways to Recruit Passive Talent

Here are four proven ways to attract passive talent to your company and any open positions that you may have.

Be Proactive on Social Media

It’s important to be visible when it comes to social media. LinkedIn and Facebook are both great options, but these days, it will take more than just creating a profile. Create groups, educational videos, or virtual hangouts to connect with both your own employees and passive talent in your industry. You can also reach out to specific passive candidates who you think would be a good fit for your company. Whether you discuss job opportunities or invite them to these social media events, making connections is essential.

Get Involved with the Professional Community

Your community has professional networking groups and events, and it’s essential that you are there as well. Creating a presence in your community can help passive talent know more about the company and will make you stay top-of-mind if and when they are looking for a new job opportunity. 

Encourage Employee Referrals

Some of your best resources to find new employees are your current employees. A current employee may have a friend who is looking for a job that will be a perfect fit for your company. A current worker will also be sure to make a quality referral because it’s a reflection on them as well. Some companies decide to create referral incentive programs but to test drive this strategy, you can simply encourage it!

Maintain a Database

As you begin to implement these strategies for recruiting passive talent, it’s important that these efforts don’t go to waste. Maintain a database of passive, yet potential talent, who you can contact when the right job opportunity becomes available.
