CLARITY Wednesday: Recruiting & Retention in Focus

Did you know that it costs 33% of a worker’s annual salary to replace them if they leave?

To say technology factors into people’s job-hunting decisions would be an understatement. Nobody takes a new job in hopes of doing an overabundance of manual work; they accept positions because they have ideas and expertise to offer. Today’s candidates are savvier than ever about making sure prospective employers are equipped with the technology that will empower them to bring those ideas to fruition. 

3 Recruiting & Retention Facts Worth Considering: 

  • Knowledgeable workers today want to advance their skills and have the opportunity to grow and build. Questions about the technology they’ll be using if they join are a key way candidates will screen your organization for a good fit.
  • Today’s workforce, especially digital natives, have been spoiled by Facebook, Apple, Amazon, and Google. These tech behemoths have set the bar for information access, personalization, and connection — and the modern worker expects that ease of use everywhere they go. 
  • According to a recent study, 87% of human resources leaders have placed their employee retention attempts as a #1 priority for the next few years.
