What exactly is the issue?
Because there are currently more tech jobs available than there are IT job seekers, businesses are forced to compete for the best applicants. An applicant no longer has to pick the first job they come across. They now have the option of choosing the firm that offers the most appealing position. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to make your company one of the most appealing places to work.
Organize meetings, workshops, and hackathons, and invite outside participants—techies may come for the pleasure of it, but will be lured into your company as a result of their positive experience and connections with current employees.
“92% of employed people would consider quitting their current job to work for a company with a strong employer brand.”
Maintain and develop your company’s positive brand image for IT professionals. Another way to pique the interest of potential IT workers is to create entertaining but professional competitive activities, like coding challenges for people inside and outside your organization.
This also communicates to your staff that you respect their input, which fosters a sense of community and serves as a powerful motivator for hard work.
Offer work from home/flexible hour choices
For many tech workers, the ability to work from home is a major plus. When it comes to choosing between two businesses, it’s often a deal-breaker. If your organization is unable to provide work-from-home opportunities, at the very least provide some scheduling flexibility.
Make the biggest feasible wage offer.
“In our current Software Engineer Survey, the salary was one of the top three job considerations for a developer.”
If you have an option between two well-known organizations, salary will most certainly be the determining factor.
But don’t give up! If you can’t compete on pay, corporate culture, employment flexibility, and the correct career challenge have a lot of attraction for people who can afford to choose contentment over money.
