Your Recruitment Company Vision and Values
How are you going to excite your employees about your recruitment company's vision and values?Although numerous businesses offer fantastic company perks and compensation packages, they still struggle to hold onto many of their employees for longer than their first year. To ensure your employees stay with you beyond their one-year anniversary, it is important to put the vision of your company at the centre of your engagement strategy.
The issue?As Gallup’s 2017 report below demonstrates, most companies struggle to engage employees because the idea of ‘vision’ is becoming an increasingly complicated concept. But all is not lost.
Although numerous businesses offer fantastic company perks and compensation packages, they still struggle to hold onto many of their employees for longer than their first year. To ensure your employees stay with you beyond their one-year anniversary, it is important to put the vision of your company at the centre of your engagement strategy.
Vision: not just another poster displayFrequently, businesses splash their vision out on a wall or display it on a poster, expecting everybody to understand it and get on board with it. However, realistically, this isn’t very effective. In research conducted by Donald Sull, it was noticed that 50% of surveyed employees did not know what the expectations for them in their workplace were. In addition, 60% of the managers that were surveyed could not name the primary goals of their own company.
So, how do we fix this?
- Make sure you properly verbalise your vision, values and the culture of your recruitment company through all mediums – email, meetings, in person – frequently!
- People receive information in a variety of ways, therefore, consistently using all these mediums to communicate is the most effective way for employees to begin internalising and understanding the direction of your organisation.
- At a company undergoing rapid growth, understanding a shared vision is an asset that will inspire the torch carriers of the future and engage all your employees while they are at work.
- Try to put together activities outside of work that encapsulate your vision. For example, if you believe in giving back and adding value to clients - do this! Networking opportunities, market salary information, community fundraising are all valid ways of interweaving your vision into the workplace.
- Communicate your vision with your hiring partners. Tell them clearly HOW you articulate your vision, and WHAT you do on a daily basis to work to this vision.
