Improve your time-to-hire with these 4 tips

  • Make your application process nimble and mobile-friendly. Make it as easy as possible to apply as possible, with as few steps as possible. Speed defines success in the race to attract quality talent and prevent drop-off.
  • Treat your digital application process like an online shopping experience. Determine at what point the applicants are bailing out, leaving the equivalent of an "abandoned shopping cart" behind, and determine ways to keep them involved in the process.
  • Use automated screening to get rid of unqualified people and filter out those who aren't a fit right away.
  • Make sure the interview process doesn't slow down the hiring process.

Lack of training and skill development

Naturally, hiking wages is one incentive for retaining workers, but it's hardly the only incentive. Besides reasonable pay, some workers want to feel like they're growing within their jobs. That their current situation will turn into improved future career prospects.

Strong training and upskilling programs are a major draw for job applicants -- 90 percent of survey respondents consider them an important feature in prospective employers. That number jumps to 97 percent for employees in the tech industry.



Steps to Killing Hustle Culture
  1. Agree on what a "good workday" is. This will vary from person to person, as everyone's situation is different, but you need to set an individual track for employees that embraces quality and sustainability over quantity and busyness. Communication is the key to this, but what to communicate can be tricky.
  2. Vacation time for everyone. Set a number of days, at least 20, for each employee, encouraging maximum flexibility. In addition, designate a week during the year when the business will close and employees will get paid time off without needing to use vacation days.
  3. Lead by example. Having positive policies on paper means nothing if people aren't taking advantage of them, and most employees will always be cautious about getting too comfortable until they see no one is judging them for it.


Battle Burnout in Your Company for Good
  1. Be vulnerable with your customers. If you're adopting initiatives to prioritize employees' wellbeing, proactively let your customers know. It helps set expectations for how they can work with you, but it also gives them transparency into your culture, values, and priorities.
  2. Prioritize deep work. By having an operating system that values intentional work over time-in-meetings, people have more time to think, create, and reflect.
  3. Set the tone at the top. Building a culture of flexibility and balance only works if employees feel empowered to use it. That's why your leadership team needs to be leading from the front in battling burnout.
