Attracting the right talent for your company’s unique philosophy, values and environment is critical to your success. If finding that perfect fit were as easy as advertising the positions you have open and filling them quickly with great talent, then you would do that yourself.
In most cases, though, your next star employee is already working in a position that is not a bad place to be and he or she doesn't have the time or energy to find a better position. These are known as “passive” candidates. They are a different breed than those that are combing job boards actively and applying for multiple jobs at the same time. Typically, passive candidates are interested in a new position only for the right set of circumstances and for the positive life change it offers. Passive candidates require much, much more effort to find than active ones, and not all recruiters are willing to invest the additional time and energy required to connect with them.
Why invest all this extra effort to source passive candidates, then? Our experience is that they bring these benefits to our customers:
Accuracy – these candidates want what YOU have to offer.
Availability - when you decide to make an offer, the likelihood of acceptance is high since these individuals were screened to match your company’s culture, skill requirements and performance expectations.
Longevity – hiring the right person for the job reduces turnover in your staff.
The outcome of a great match is a direct contribution to your bottom line. Happy employees are generally healthier than those with low job satisfaction and take fewer sick days. They are more invested in your company’s success since they feel they are a direct extension of your corporate mission and goals. Employee satisfaction is contagious and leads to higher patient/client satisfaction. And best of all…these employees cannot be recruited by your competition because they love what they do!
