Benefits to the Organization of attracting and retaining a diverse workforce.
Currently, an increasing number of organizations are attempting to enhance inclusiveness of underrepresented individuals through proactive efforts to manage their diversity. Recruiting is a critical staffing activity for organizations, but its impact on the job seeker is poorly understood. Much remains to be learned about individual differences in reactions to recruitment efforts.
Improve business performance
Research findings from industrial and organizational psychology and other disciplines cast doubt on the simple assertion that a diverse workforce inevitably improves business performance.
Positive company image
Organizations with good reputation hire individuals from a wide range of backgrounds. This provides a great deal of confidence amongst the customers. Organizations often benefits from a diverse work force, such as operational benefit in festive time or just simply ability to speak another language.
Increased productivity
A diverse company can lead to greater productivity. The company will also gain from each employee learning from each other’s experiences and applying this new-found knowledge to their work. Employees from different backgrounds see processes and practices from different perspectives and therefore are able to bring fresh ideas to the table.

...Resourcing Talent – Talent Planning in an Organisation 1. Four factors that affect an organisations approach to attracting talent are: * Expansion – A company that keeps expanding attracts a lot of new talent who want job security and promotion prospects. * Development opportunities – A company who offer learning and development opportunities will attract a lot of talent who want to learn new skills to better their career. Without training prospects a lot of talent will be lost. * Salary – A company with lower levels of salary wouldn’t attract as much talent as higher levels of pay. Workers want their hard work to reflect in their wages. * Benefits packages – A company with good benefits package also attracts talent. People want to see what the company offers to safeguard and assist their employees. 2.

Factors Effecting Organisations Approach to Attracting Talent

...Resourcing Talent The objective of this report is to identify and assess four factors that affect an organisations approach to both attracting talent and recruitment and selection. I will also be looking at attracting and retaining a diverse workforce and the different methods of recruitment and selection. One of the main factors that influence the organisations approach is cost. The recruitment of a new employee would affect the overall budget of the organisation. Often an organisation will try to share the work between other members of staff before turning to recruiting a new role to keep the costs down. The cost is not just for a new employees wage but for the advertisement and preparation behind the employment, including new computer and the equipment required for the role. The second factor which affects the recruitment process is the time scales involved in the initial advertising and recruitment of new staff. First of all a decision needs to be made by management of the applicant required and the role to be filled. Upon a decision a job description would be written and agreed and the role would then be advertised to the general public. Upon receipt of the application forms the line manager would short-list appropriate candidates and interviews would be organised. After the interviews, letters would be sent to unsuccessful applicants and the appropriate candidate would be informed. The introduction procedure to the office and workstation and the companies......

Attracting Talent

...1 Attracting Talent TESTIMONIAL “In the context of the UK’s skills crisis and global business, those organisations that effectively measure and manage their human capital will have a competitive advantage in the marketplace.” Jo Causon Director of Marketing and Corporate Affairs for the Chartered Management Institute In today’s market, there is a shortage of top recruits, and exceptional candidates are highly aware of their marketability. Employers should think hard about the true motivation of candidates for better talent acquisition. Response to employer brand An employer brand includes what current, past or potential workers think about you as an organisation. It’s forged partly by advertising and recruitment web sites, but far more often by experience – what actually happens to a candidate when they apply for a job. The way candidates are treated has a strong impact on their willingness to recommend you as an employer. It also influences the likelihood that they will buy or recommend your products or services. A March 2007 study by Capital Consulting recorded that one in four job seekers say they have been badly treated when applying for a job. This has a knock-on effect. Over half of job seekers will not purchase products and services if they have been badly treated. 55% tell at least three people about their bad experience, putting off the candidate pool. In an age of information overload, having the right knowledge at your fingertips can make the difference......
