Times are tough for growing businesses right now. There's a lot of work to be done but limited skilled workers to do it. As a result, top talent know they can have their pick of jobs and receive the salary and work perks that they're after.
For SMEs like yours, competing against larger firms, particularly in sales, marketing, and technology can be tough.
How do you stand out when you know your competitor's salary bid will always be higher?
Fortunately, today's recruits are looking at more than just a good salary.
In Australia, the recruitment market is made up of 75% millennials who - even before COVID - were pushing for a change in workplace culture.
Ergo, when COVID came along, and hybrid workplaces were introduced, majority of the workforce (millennials) realised the opportunity at hand.
Top tip: if you're up against competitors with deep pockets look at what you can offer outside of salary and make sure you communicate that!
Hybrid workplace environments aren't all millennials are looking for. In fact, despite their reputation for being the 'selfish' generation, they just want to be involved and challenged.
And are - in some cases - willing to take a lower salary to get it.
