We are in the midst of a global pandemic, and the future remains uncertain about many aspects, both in terms of economy, as well as Malta’s human resources. Needless to say, having a game plan to attract the right people to join your team; as well as retaining and nurturing the growth of your existing talent, remains essential.
How can you be certain that you’re attracting the right people? And how can you ensure that your current staff is taken care of? Our team of experts at Ceek have put together a few tips on how to recruit and retain top talent during Covid-19 and beyond:
It all boils down to the way you mitigate the crisis. One smart idea is to keep your employees engaged, especially if you’re working remotely. Encourage your team to share with each other how their days have been. Encourage them to share their triumphs, or what they have learnt.
You can even take it one step further and bring your company culture to the outside world. Encourage your staff to take photos, showing how they’ve adapted, and upload them to social media. Not only will it leave your staff feeling connected, but it paints a great picture of what the culture at your company looks like.
Employees who are given freedom and a sense of responsibility in the workplace tend to be more content, especially top talent. Constant micromanaging can potentially drive them away and make them lose interest.
Set tasks and challenges with an open-door policy while offering help and support that will encourage your employees to learn how to adapt and develop new skills allowing them to further grow within the company.
Give your best people the time and resources to try out new ideas and concepts. This will not only keep them engaged but could add value to your brand or even bring in another revenue stream.
Choose the right fit
Building the right image of your brand is key to attracting the right talent. It’s not just about who is most knowledgeable in their field of expertise, or who can rack up the most experience. It’s also about the person’s fit. You want to build a team, not simply an office; so it’s essential that a new candidate’s character will complement and elevate your existing team.
