Today’s consumer world is driven by experiences. If people hate the experience of using your solution - even if it solves a major challenge for them - you’ll struggle to increase product adoption. That’s why more and more companies are investing in UX/UI design and why, in 2019, 87% of organizations reported hiring more UX designers to be a top priority.
With so many companies focusing their hiring efforts on UX talent, how can you make sure your organization stands out amongst the bunch? Here are three key steps to discovering top design talent before the competition.
According to our 2020 Recruiting Trends Report, 73% of recruiters find higher quality candidates from passive sourcing than any other source - which has led recruiting organizations to adopt more aggressive sourcing strategies in order to compete for top passive talent. Consequently, the same candidates (with the online resumes that check all the boxes) are continually inundated with recruiting outreach noise.
The reality is to get ahead in 2020, you will need to find ways to source more untraditional candidates that have the right mix of skills and experience to excel in your organization. Here are three ways to use Entelo to do just that.
As any seasoned recruiter knows, the fate of your recruiting outreach often comes down to just one sentence – your subject line. If your subject line fails to catch a candidate’s eye, it doesn’t matter how much time you spent sourcing the perfect candidate, personalizing a thoughtful message, or choosing the perfect time of day to send it off. It will still go unread.
In fact, today’s average worker consistently has close to 200 unread emails sitting in their inbox every day. So how can you make sure your message stands out amongst the crowd? We analyzed the thousands of emails sent through Entelo Track to bring you key insights from the highest performing email subject lines. Use these insights to optimize your subject lines for higher open rates and let your expertly-crafted recruiting outreach do the rest!
Today, the opportunity in front of recruiters is greater than ever before. Armed with the necessary tools and insight, recruiters can refine their process, eliminate inefficiencies, mitigate biases, and engage with top talent at the optimal time. However, without an understanding of the new rules and ideals for business and HR, talent teams will be ill-equipped to discover, engage and retain the 21st century workforce. To understand today’s competitive hiring landscape, Entelo’s 2020 Recruiting Trends Report examines the slight, but pivotal changes in the world of talent acquisition.
As competition gets stiffer for companies trying to claim a stake of their respective market, one (very) important success factor is falling to the wayside: employee wellness. In a 2018 study, researchers found that over 61% of employees believed that workplace stress had made them sick, and yet more research has suggested workplace stress to be a leading cause of death in the US.
Ethical implications aside, why should companies care? To put it simply, employee wellness can make or break your bottom line. In fact, recent estimates indicate job stress has cost more than $300 billion for US employees each year.
Whether you have a wellness program in place or are starting from scratch, there are a few key steps you can take at your organization to boost employee morale and increase wellness in the workplace.
After talking to hundreds of recruiters and HR professionals about their diversity and inclusion initiatives, we found there to be a major gap between D&I efforts and results. While over 58% of recruiting teams surveyed in our 2019 Trends Report had some sort of D&I initiative in place, 50% believed they should be doing more to ensure a fair and unbiased hiring process.
