You may have never thought of it this way around but the culture of the company and recruitment are inter-related. The already hired employees shape the work culture and the culture impacts the interest of the candidate in working with your company. So, it is important to take good care of both of these HR functions besides using recruitment management software.
Remember, the software can only set the baseline towards a great work culture; in the end, it is the HR who has to manage the human resources and when the hiring won’t be done rightly, managing them will clearly become tough.
So, here are a few pointers explaining how both of them help each other. Take a look.
Identity- The culture gives an identity to the company and the better it is, the better is the identity of the company. Culture is an indispensable part of the identity of the company. This also defines the core values that an employee should have. This sets the benchmark for the recruiters and helps them in checking if the candidate they are thinking to hire can fit in the culture.
Employee retention- The company culture helps in increasing retention. When the work environment and policies are good enough the employees want to stay in the company for long. Every person wants to feel valued, loved and cared not just in personal life but in professional life as well. So, when employee retention is high, you would be able to use it as the unique selling point of your company in front of the candidates.
Brand image- The image of the company also improves manifold when the culture is great. The brand image improves phenomenally. When your company is counted as one of the best brands to work with, great candidates start approaching the recruiter themselves. A better line of candidates helps in letting the culture improve and not deteriorate with the new hirings.
Recruitment is all about finding the right fit!
Recruitment management software can help you in sourcing the candidates. You should list the skillsets you are looking for properly after discussing it with stakeholders that will be involved in the work that the hire is supposed to do. Then, at the time of interviewing, you should try to see if the values that your company has will align with the values that the candidates have. If you will not find the right fit for your company, you will have a hard time maintaining the work culture. So, choose the employees wisely and so that the culture stays the same i.e as good as it is already.
The aforementioned points have made it quite clear that recruitment and work culture are inter-related and vital for the growth of the business. So, make sure both of them are managed well.
