The key to attracting today’s talent in a candidate-driven market is knowing what makes you stand out from the crowd.
Michael Divers, HR Strategy and Project Director talks about the challenge of finding and retaining talent in today’s competitive climate addressing just why candidates should choose us to develop their career and not a competitor.
There is no doubt that, with almost full employment and a growing economy, every CEO or HR Director will tell you that finding and keeping great people is their biggest challenge. For us at WYG, this is absolutely true. As we power full steam ahead into growing our business, we understand that we need to become better at telling people why WYG is a great place to work and that we have the people policies and practices in place across our business that delivers on that promise each and every day.
When we reflected on why someone should come to work and develop their career with us, we felt that we could better articulate what we have to offer. What makes WYG stand out as a potential employer? Why should someone choose to join us and not a competitor? Why would someone choose to stay with us? The answers to these questions need to be clear, unambiguous, authentic and totally believable.
We are at a pivotal point on our journey. The company is committed to growth and has a clear strategy and plans in place to achieve this. If ever there was a time to join us, it’s now. So what precisely is the ‘deal’?
We provide our people with a chance to work with colleagues from diverse backgrounds and experiences on a global stage. This is more than a job or a career opportunity it is a chance to make a real difference to the world around you.
We never forget that great people have choices about where they work. We’re confident we can offer amazing opportunities and progression in line with their dreams and ambitions. We have a proud history and track record of success in the sectors and locations where we operate. But it’s the future we’re really excited about and the opportunity for our people to shape their careers in a growing and successful business.
