(Or what are you doing about your current employee engagement?) 
 
 
The world of work in many cases has not only been turned upside down, but things have changed almost over night with no clear end in sight for anyone yet. So, what does this mean in terms of your employees and keeping them engaged with your company and the role that they play in your success? 
 
More time on their hands 
 
The work place has changed so much in the last month and the day to day role in many cases has changed too, so how are your teams coping with this? In many cases there is less work for them to do, or you may have had to furlough some people. What can you do to make sure that once this is all over, they are still engaged with their current role and your company and are not spending any spare time they may have now researching other companies and planning to move on? 
 
Now is the time to show the love. 
 
 
 
 
There is currently much worry about the Coronavirus and how this will affect businesses and particularly what changes will need to take place within the workplace to accommodate a rise in risk. As an employer you may be reviewing your handwashing facilities, cleaning regimes, looking to minimising travel and you may also be putting in to place contingency plans to support staff if remote working becomes a necessity. With all that said you may still have recruitment needs and finding the ideal candidate does not have to wait.

As we move into 2019 as a Hiring Manager what trends do you need to be aware of in the candidate market to ensure that you are getting the best candidates apply in the New Year? 
 
Throughout 2018 the candidate market has been difficult with there being more jobs than available candidates. Candidates who were looking for new positions have been in the situation where they have been offered a number of roles. Brexit offers uncertainty and the job market has been seen to slow in the last quarter of the year, but what should you be doing in 2019? 
Statistics show that 4% of employees leave on day 1 of a new role and 22% within the first 45 days. Does your company have a high staff turnover and have you looked at the root causes of this and the impact that it may be having on your business?  
 
 
 
A low staff turnover means that generally companies have a higher morale, their customers are more satisfied, the company is better at maintaining its knowledge and expertise and will see better sales growth. What are our top tips to increase your staff turnover?

By giving candidates the best candidate experience whilst they are dealing with you means that you are continually improving your employer branding. An interview is the best opportunity for a candidate to see your company and if the experience is good hopefully they will tell others. Candidates that have a poor candidate experience will most certainly share that news! 
There are two types of recruitment - retained and contingency. Companies with recruitment needs are often blinded into believing that they are getting a better service using a number of agencies to fill one position. 
In reality this means that actually employers are swapping quality for quantity. So why should employers move from the traditional model of giving their vacancies to a number of agencies to a Retained Recruitment Service?
