Even It Up!

Shifting the balance for jobseekers

What do jobseekers want?

There has to be a better way!  Why has globalisation not resulted in better, more innovative recruitment practices?

Dare we say it’s because employing staff is seen as “high risk”.  And that may be the case, but not attracting fabulous people to your organisation – and retaining them – is a greater risk!  If businesses and organisations don’t update their recruitment practices to reflect today’s fluid, flexible and values-oriented workforce – more eductaed than it ever was – then the watch for the next big economic crisis. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

But when Even It Up! says innovative, what do we mean?  Put simply, it means making the recruitment process as painless, respectful and pleasant as possible for jobseekers.  Get rid of the selection criteria!  Throw the panel interview out the window!  Think about what happens at every step of the recruitment process – and improve it!  Your employer brand will ultimately thank you!
