ATTRACTING TALENT USING SOCIAL MEDIA


In today’s tight labor market, your company culture shouldn’t be a secret! Human resources and marketing need to work hand and hand to help attract the talent you need.

What to share on your social media channels :

Don’t keep it a secret – share stories & pictures about employee events and success stories

· Anniversaries – Do you have long term employees? Celebrate their commitment to your company. If you offer rewards for length of service talk about it.

· Internal Promotions – Internal promotions show you care about your employee’s future. Make sure to let the world know when you promote from within.

· Degrees or certificates achieved while working – Do you offer education assistance? Tell the story by sharing when employees take advantage of your benefits.

· Personal celebrations – Did you throw a baby shower during lunch for someone or bring in cookies for a birthday? This is a great opportunity to show how much you care about your employee’s personal life.

· Company Outings – Have you organize company outings? I.e. group baseball games, or bowling leagues. Talk about it, work life balance is an important tool to attracting and retaining quality employees.

· High Achievers – Have you achieved any records? Most items picked, days without injury, etc.

· Wellness programs – Did your company sponsor a biggest looser competition? Do you have an athlete on your team or offer workout facilities?

· Volunteer program / employee match – Does your company have a volunteer program or employee matching program? Share how much you care about your employees causes.

Grow your followers:

· Make sure to brand your images – your company’s logo should be on every image you share.

· Don’t use too many words on photo – Share the story in the comment or picture description area.

· Tag – Encourage your employees to follow you on social media and tag them in success stories.

· Use hashtags: #employeeappreciation, #employeewellness, #employeesuccess. Hashtags help draw attention to your posts.

· Find groups and participate - Find groups related to your industry, location or specific skills and participate in discussions or share relevant information from your personal profile.

We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
