COVID has changed our world in many ways. Both job seekers and employers have to think differently in order to attract new talent.

In an hour-long presentation from the Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS), Holly Betten, HR Business Partner at Landus, provides 10 strategies to help you find new employees and retain your existing workforce.

Betten advises viewers to throw lots of darts to attract new talent. Then she encourages you to try new and different tactics if you are not getting the results you want.

Her suggestions include exploring untraditional methods including:

  • Providing free tacos for in-person applicants
  • Hosting a drive-through career fair or hiring
  • Hiring a daily workforce through a prison work-release program

Later, she shares has tips for improving standard tactics, like job ads. She encourages you to have a clear and concise title on ads. You should also be intentional with your formatting. Finally, she reminds you to really sell your company to turn candidates into applicants.

The full presentation is available for free for GEAPS members in the Knowledge Resource Center on the GEAPS website.
