Why reward is so important in recruitment
Work hard, play hard: why reward is so important in recruitment
For example, at Capita IT Resourcing we empower our recruiters to be the innovative professionals we know they can be. We welcome suggestions from all our staff - regardless of their level or length of service - as to new or evolving business opportunities. Of those that are deemed to be viable, the business provides full backing for staff, offering the guidance and training required. A good example of this is a consultant who, in their first few months, was to set up their own desk in a new market. For the recruiter in question, seeing their ideas come to fruition is much more rewarding professionally than the financial return they will inevitably see.
Have clear career progression upwards and sideways!
Of course those suited to a senior position should be given the access to upward progression, but no employer wants to lose talented staff because the right opportunities arent available. Instead, the chance to move across the business into other departments should be considered. Given that a key trait of some of the best recruiters is the need to be challenged, providing them with the chance to experience new environments will certainly appeal.
Recognise hard work regularly
Sometimes the little things really do make the most impact when rewarding staff. In an industry that we all recognise is highly competitive and cut-throat, demonstrating to our high achievers that their hard-work is appreciated will go a long way to attract and retain the best talent.
