Attract Top Candidates by Staying Up-To-Date on Employment Trends

What do job seekers want these days? Flexibility? Remote work? Unlimited PTO?

Workers’ needs have changed—and are likely to continue evolving during the aftershocks of the Covid-19 pandemic. But no matter what employees want from their jobs, one thing is certain: employers who tap into the needs of the workforce have a better chance of attracting—and retaining—top talent.

Embracing change and implementing relevant policies can help your company appeal to today’s workforce and remain competitive in the ever-changing employment landscape. What are some of the trends you can leverage for recruiting success in 2023? Consider the following ideas:

Provide Hybrid Work Options

Flexibility is important to modern workers. After the stress of the pandemic, many workers prioritize work-life balance and prize the ability to coordinate personal and professional obligations. Employees are reluctant to give up the freedom that improved their quality of life to return to a 40-hour in-person work week. However, the isolation of working remotely causes its own kind of strain for many workers. Consider providing the best of both worlds by offering hybrid work options.

Extend Mental Health and Wellness Initiatives

Just as the workforce returns to work after the pandemic, the threat of a recession looms large—creating continued uncertainty. Prolonged stress can lead to burnout and a host of other mental and physical challenges. Employers who provide wellness resources show that they care about their employees’ well-being and provide much-needed support during challenging times.

Offer Relevant Benefits

Employers who meet workers’ needs are more likely to attract top talent. Many job seekers consider an attractive benefits package second only to salary when comparing job offers. What kinds of benefits are valuable to today’s workforce? Here are some options:

  • Increased paid time-off
  • 401(k) matching
  • Pet insurance
  • Health coverage (including mental health benefits)
  • Child care assistance
  • Paid family leave
