Designing to Recruit Top Talent

Did you know that the current national unemployment rate is 3.6 percent, with our region averaging only 2.5 percent? The last time it was this low was in December of 1969! With a multitude of available opportunities across the job market, a shift has occurred. Job candidates are now in the powerful position of selecting their employer. The natural question then arises: what should business owners be doing to stand out and attract top talent in such a competitive market? As with most things in the world of business, there is no cookie-cutter answer. Plenty of contributing factors exist. For example, your company's purpose and culture are very key drivers in the job market. But today we'll be looking at an aspect of hiring that many overlook.
