Building a better employer value proposition
A company’s competitive edge historically has been defined by tangible assets, however it is now based on intangibles; driven by people. The balance of power has shifted from employer to employee. It is a concern for organisations when a recent Gallup poll reported that ‘the world appears to be in the midst of an employee engagement crisis as only 13% of the worldwide workforce are considered engaged in their jobs’. Our staff appear to have checked out and HR executives are puzzled how to reverse this trend
The war for top talent is fiercer than ever and retention is high on employers’ agenda. When the average cost of getting recruitment wrong is £12,000 plus the cost of senior management time – which is often business critical – the pressure to get it right is immense.
With social and digital trends changing faster than ever before and a new type of candidate (millennials) entering the workplace, companies can no longer continue to engage people in the same way as before. Organisation have learnt that skills can be taught but fit with the culture and meeting employee expectation is everything.
Kennedy James can greatly improve an employer’s chances of recruiting and retaining the right staff by supporting the journey from the initial recruitment process, through tailored integration into the company, to keeping the employee engaged and feeling valued. Delivering a positive experience for both candidate and employer. Working closely with management to understand the company culture and using the i3 personality indicator to analyse the role profile and their management style, we will provide the information needed to give a much closer fit to the culture, aligned to the personality traits of the successful candidate and how they need to be managed to maximise performance and retention.
Employers need to redefine the employment experience and let employees own their own experiences; Kennedy James has aligned its brand with Beyond 360 Limited; a company launching a cloud based online SaaS solution that drives consistent employee engagement and behaviour aligned towards company goals and values. Creating a culture of reward and recognition – with collaborative working enabling talent to build a better employer value proposition.
