How to Attract and Retain Your Best Talent

 There’s one big secret when it comes to growing your company, having an awesome brand image, and increasing your revenues: attract the best talent.

While successful companies have always understood that awesome employees are their most valuable asset, it’s now becoming more important than ever. The workforce is changing in a big way. Employee turnover is on the rise, with people having an average of 10 different jobs during their career span. There’s also a growing movement towards company transparency (think of social sites like Glassdoor that give the inside track on salaries, work-life balance, and the general happiness of employees).

Companies with strong employer brands win out

In the battle to win over talented workers, companies with strong employee branding and culture stand out. A survey by CareerBuilder shows that firms with strong employer brands attract 3.5 times more applications for a job posting than other companies in similar industries.
