Dear Cite HR members,
Recruitment strategy has been a great issue for me as a HR Manager in IT Company. I have tried all the basic strategies( Employee Referral, Newspaper Ad., Online Vacancies, Social media) for attracting candidates, yet right candidates are not in my account. We are mid-level company and have to invest very wisely. I would be pleased if anyone could share me what can I proceed further for having right people ( recruitment ideas).
Looking forward for response.

Hi Divya, Are you using any job portal.In that mass mailing is always easy way to attract & get interested candidates resume.
Hi Gunjan, Yes, I am using local job portals but only freshers are on pipeline. Ratio of experienced candidates is really very low. Thanks for response Divya
Hello Divya,
Any specific reason(s) why Consultants/Agencies haven't been used?
Usually for middle/senior level positions AND for lesser numbers this works out better, especially when it involves some sort of 'selling the company' [for whatever reason(s)].

Hi Satish,
As such in Nepal, here is no such facilities of Consultant Agencies. Even though, I am using best online portal of Kathmandu. Experienced candidates are insecure to leave their existing companies and relevant candidates are lacking in market. I am planning to initiate PR campaigning but I don't have enough idea regarding IT arena. How to start branding , its a question for myself. Well, could you suggest me something?

Hello Divya,
The very fact that your experience is "Experienced candidates are insecure to leave their existing companies" indicates that 'selling your company' MAY be very much necessary.
But full-fledged Branding would be expensive for this [hiring] purpose. It's more relevant from marketing angles.
Pl mail the full details to me on: & let's take it from there. I would also need the URL of your company & if you don't have a website, pl mail more details about your company.
We have done such assignments earlier with quite some success.

Hello Divya,
It seems you are facing two problems; One finding good candidates and Second once the offer is made, they deny to join.
Usually with such mid sized company even when you find good candidates companies try to hire them in peanuts (ofcourse budget plays a huge role). This really has nothing to do with the city, state or country you work in. The selection criteria are equivalent to any large corporate viz written test, technical round, HR round & then the final meeting with Director or CEO. I suggest you to also review the selection criteria with the level you are hiring. Even if you had consultants / agencies there, hiring through them will never fit in your budget.
TS has already made a point for second problem. Branding makes a whole lot of difference. And so to add also the internal policies, infrastructure, growth prospects, product of the company, turnover etc.. If you happen to work on second problem you would easily be able to solve the first too.

Hi ,
Map your requirement with your Competitor and try to connect the people thru social networking sites and talk about your opportunity to them.... hit ratio will be higher and you will get the right candidature

Hi Divya,
You Can get candidates from monster/naukri portal & u can post as many as ads you can on famous free sites like OLX, INDEED etc...This sites are actually very helpful. You can also get candidates from Jobfair. Ask your existing employees also to refer.

You can do one things below things for branding:

1. Using social media like fb or linkedin for things happening inside your company showing others the cool culture you have and still yet very competitive.

2. Build 6months to 1 year experience people using existing experienced candidates as mentors.

3.Gift every employee stationary like pen, key chain, notebook using company logos on them. Also, can give coffee mugs with your branding (these thing don't cost much if you purchase them in bulk)

4. Use creative sign boards outside and way direction board so people around can see and know there is a company doing IT business. These sign board must be creative and not boring should be very different not the routine one's.

5. Keep a database of less experience people who applied to position before but got rejected because of experience. they might still want to work with your company after 6 months. Also, give positive feedback to candidates whom are rejected and ask them to apply after 6 months and brushing your skills.

Alot more things can be done start with these.
