Other less well documented ways include hosting webinars for prospective employees, and holding live streaming careers events. Each of these provides the perfect opportunity for you to communicate your company culture and engage with your ideal candidates.
Visibility is Everything
Tucking your culture content into a forgotten corner of your careers site or burying it within the navigation is like buying the perfect outfit and never taking it out of the wardrobe. Culture content needs to be a maximum of one click away from the job application. Ensuring that your company’s culture is visible not only helps you to attract the right candidate, it will help candidates that can’t see themselves fitting in remove themselves from the process.
IMMERSE the Candidate
In order to achieve the immersive experience we are aiming for, the most important action is to personalise your carefully crafted culture content. It is absolutely vital that the careers content is relevant to each specific job.
A user browsing for Administrator jobs will not be interested in the testimony of a Financial Manager, no matter how well produced or engaging the content is. As renowned content marketing author Gary Vaynerchuk says, “If content is king, then context is god”. By personalising your content and keeping it contextual, you are removing barriers- encouraging the right candidates to apply rather than preventing them.
