cut-e designs exciting and ground-breaking tools to attract talent
Attracting talent is one thing. But typically you don’t need more people applying for roles if they are just not suitable for, or motivated to do, the job.
What you need is the ability to present a realistic view of the role, what is required and how it plays out – and then for the potential applicant to actively choose to apply, or to move on.
A realistic view of a job to let candidates decide
Recruitment and hiring is becoming more candidate-centric. It matters to applicants where they work and what the culture is like. We work with organisations across sectors to develop Realistic Job Previews. These provide an interactive, fun and honest view of the job role being considered. Engaging and delivered to a smartphone, tablet or desktop, they provide a great way for potential applicants to find out if they are suited to the roles at your organisation or within your industry as they look at the skills, values and personality characteristics needed. Together we will create typical on-the-job scenarios and feedback, based on the responses by the potential applicant, is instant and will help him or her to decide to continue with an application.
It helps applicants to self-select in – and out meaning that you only get applicants who have a realistic view of the job and understand what is needed.
Perhaps you have a range of courses or programmes on offer and you want to help your applicants select the most suited to their skills, capabilities and interests. We can help design and implement a series of tools to look at the specific abilities, interests and motivations, packaged together for the potential applicant to work through.
The result is direct feedback as to the courses or programmes or traineeships you offer which are most likely to fit the person’s profile. This helps not only the applicant to make the right choice, but helps you to improve the likely successful completion of training and reduce drop-out rates. Mobile optimised, it also helps brand the organisation as innovative and cutting edge.
Attract talent using online gaming approaches
The growth of online games is well documented – and quite simply people enjoy playing games on their mobile devices. We can help you harness this enthusiasm by working with you to develop your own game with our partner Arctic Shores, or fun and realistic job preview which you can then use to engage with potential applicants. It’ll support your own positioning if you’re forward-thinking and innovative, and will be memorable to you applicants – of course many of whom may also be your customers.
Taking this further, you may also think about using game-based psychometric assessments as part of your selection tools.
