How networking can secure new talent

Looking for and gaining the best talent is no easy feat, with more companies vying for the attention of skilled workers to fill their vacancies. Having a strong, positive brand is essential, while offering enticing work benefits will also go a long way to secure talent, however, the power of networking shouldn’t be ignored.

Networking via social media platforms is a great start, however, employees also want to meet with potential employers face-to-face, to help them gain an understanding of how a business works and whether they will fit in with the working culture. As such, it’s crucial for HR to take up any opportunity that arises to network with members of their industry, as well as potential candidates, to build their reputation and attract skilled workers.
