Growing the team is often the most challenging task for employers. Not always you find the right candidates at the right time and on top of that if you have a tight budget the job becomes even more difficult. As a recruiter, you must have come across candidates that are a great fit for your organization but you simply cannot afford them. And so you are trapped in a paradox — you need to expand your team to increase revenue but you cannot afford to expand your team until you increase your revenue. However, amid this frequently occurring scenario in the business world, there also dwells a common misconception among recruiters for which they miss out on top talents from the industry. Although compensation is an important part of attracting good candidates, recruiters also need to know that it’s not the only way of winning them over. Competition is tough out there with big companies offering lucrative compensations but the good news is that many talented candidates are also looking for good work culture, shorter distance to work, skill enhancement opportunities and other benefits. And, if you can plan your recruitment process well you can very well attract top talents even under tight budgets.
