I LOST TWO GREAT CANDIDATES TO OTHER OFFERS! WHAT SHOULD I DO?
We feel your pain! The current labor market is very much like the housing market; on fire. Top talent is moving fast and the price is going up. While we always recommend making a competitive pay and benefits offer, this is where positive company culture and work-life balance really come into play. The interview process needs to be one that is focused on the right fit for you and your candidate. It’s important to demonstrate why you are an employer of choice. Make the candidate feel wanted and show them how they might fit into the company. Do that and you will likely win more offer battles than you lose.
