Thought leader pieces

March 27th, 2018 by Alison McKinney

At The Survey Initiative our Directors often write thought leadership pieces for the national media.

Here’s a piece Gary Cattermole, recently put together which discusses HRs role in attracting the best brains, talent and skill to ensure their organisation can compete against the finest companies in the world. However, are HRs in danger of overselling a role to entice top talent?

Are you as good as your job ads?

HRs are tasked at attracting the best brains, talent and skill to ensure their organisation can compete against the finest companies in the world. However, are HRs in danger of overselling a role to entice top talent?

But does overselling, or painting too pretty a picture really work? Employees may already have in mind what it may be like to work for an organisation, for example: Virgin, entrepreneurial and forward-thinking etc, or Facebook, high proportion of millennial workers and flexible working etc, but all recruitment processes, from the job ad to signing the contract, should give applicants a real insight into the role and that of the organisation, otherwise you could be heading for disaster.
