How to win the war for talent in 2022

Posted by Tilt Recruitment on September 16, 2022

Skills shortages are hitting harder than ever in almost every industry, but could this crisis also be an opportunity? Here are 6 things you can do as an employer to get ahead of the game and create a global workforce.


1. Boost your employer brand

The best way to win top talent is with a top-notch employer value proposition (EVP), and the best way to retain your existing talent is to have a strong employer brand. Candidates today want a job that aligns with their values and allows them to do meaningful work.


2. Decentralise your workforce

It’s what you do, not where you do it, that matters in today’s workforce. To keep up with the future of work, tap into the global talent pool and start building a distributed workforce. Bill Gates has predicted that over 50% of employees will work from home in the future, and offering remote options is rapidly becoming a must-have to attract talent.


3. Build a global talent pipeline

Look to the principles of supply-chain management and create global supply chains for your people as well as for your products. In both cases, when there are shortages, having multiple supply chains will enable you to keep going.


4. Offer continuous learning

Learning shouldn’t stop with onboarding. You need to be supporting your people in continuous learning both to create your own supply of home-grown talent and to attract new talent. Candidates are looking for employers who are willing to invest in their future and offer them clear career development opportunities.


5. Create agile working environments

Employees are looking for flexibility and autonomy now more than ever–an agile workplace will help you provide that. Agile working is “an approach to getting work done with maximum flexibility and minimum constraints,” according to Unilever. “It goes beyond just flexible working or telecommuting and focuses on eliminating the barriers to getting work done efficiently”.


6. Tap into the gig economy

With more and more people doing freelance work, you can easily hire gig workers to fill a short-term skills gap. Be transparent about the work you’re offering, remember you get what you pay for, and if you find someone who seems like a good fit, put them on your payroll and fill that skills gap for the long term.
