With the swift and constant changes in the tech world at the moment, it’s not surprising that tech hiring managers are feeling the pain. In the old days, you sent out a job ad, waited for applications and resumes to come back, selected the best for a shortlist, and then interviewed. But those days are long gone. So what are the major challenges facing tech hirers today and how can they solve their hiring headaches?
Locating the best talent
According to Jason Chen, co-founder and CEO of Headlight, 52% of hiring managers say that difficulty in locating the right talent is their number one recruiting problem. Hiring managers are scouring LinkedIn, trawling social media, and using other innovative ways to locate the best tech workers, but this is hugely time-consuming, and ultimately very costly to the hiring budget.
And it’s also true that demand outstrips the available talent, making it a workers’ market. Tech specialists can pick and choose where to live, who they work for, and how much they earn, simply because their talent is much in demand. Companies looking to recruit the very best have to stand out from the crowd to attract top talent. Competition is fierce among the tier 1 companies like: Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft and Amazon.
That’s not easy, because there’s now a multigenerational workforce in the tech industry, and different generations have different priorities when it comes to choosing an employer.
Attracting top talent
And it’s not only about the money. Savvy workers are now considering all kinds of other factors, including workforce culture, reputation for diversity and inclusion, employee-friendly working practices (e.g. remote or flexible working, unlimited vacation), and other benefits such as attitudes to employee health or sustainability.
If you want to attract the best workers, you need to ensure your company has a great reputation for treating its workers well and behaving ethically.
