The first exposure a potential employee has to your company begins the moment they visit your Careers page. What does it say about your company? Does it provide a glimpse into the day-to-day life of your organization? Are there any key qualities all of your employees share that the candidate can relate to?
Communicate your company culture
It’s no longer sufficient to simply post a list of job descriptions and contact information. Potential employees want to get to know your organization more holistically. With a great deal of the emerging workforce classified as “Millennials” (tech savvy individuals born in the 80s and 90s) the landscape is changing drastically. The 9-5 job opportunity isn’t enough. Candidates are interested in competitive wages, flexible hours, benefits and wellness programs. Work/life balance even trumps financial rewards.
Communicating your company culture to employees both potential and present can yield an awesome return. Candidates can determine right up front whether they are aligned with your organization’s mission and values. This kind of open communication will improve your retention rates. Employees that are fully engaged and invested in the place they work and the work they’re doing are 38% more willing to do more than expected and 26% more productive (see the 2011 Psychometrics Engagement study for more great stats).
Streamlining your application process
An HR system will make communication easier and automating the application process will save time for both you and your candidate. Curos will help you streamline your application process and attract the very best. A Curos Careers page will not only communicate company values and culture, it will engage your candidates with an appealing layout, interesting information and a simple application process.

The system will then provide you with a list of the best matches for the positions you need to fill. After the interview process is complete, the successful candidate can become an employee within the system quickly and easy.
