Using Social Media To Attract & Hire Talent
Lots of companies are busy hiring right now, meaning that the war for talent is strong. As a result, the traditional methods of attracting talent aren’t always effective. In times like this, you need to stand out from the crowd.
“But how do we do that?” I hear you cry. Well, you’ve come to the right place! Here are some of the best ways to attract talent to your company in the digital world…

Inclusivity Is Important
People don’t need to be affected by the changes you make to care about them.
It’s important to note that sharing the changes your company is making to be more inclusive isn’t a negative thing. Some believe that shouting about these changes can be considered bragging or this will only highlight the gaps in inclusivity.
The world is constantly changing and every company has objectives they’re working towards to improve D&I.
Advertising how you’re making the workplace more inclusive (like Innocent have below) shows that you’re open to change, care about your employees and ultimately tells candidates that they will be valued at your business.
