TALENT ATTRACTION & EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT that drives business growth.

By Bob McCarthy

We’ve recently completed our 100th search – contributing to Dealer growth across the US. And recently, Members requested the ability to drive Employee Retention and Engagement by sharing benefits like Employee Discounts, Learning & Education along with important business, industry and Hunter Douglas news with their employees.

As the employment market maintains its historically-challenging pace resulting from a combination of many factors including low unemployment and slow wage growth, we recommend Dealers continue to attract new talent but also build EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT to develop, retain and improve performance within existing teams. Nearly 53% of surveyed employees across the US have indicated they’ll seek a new job this year in search of a higher wage. It should be obvious that engaged employees are less likely to leave. What’s more significant is that organizations with highly-engaged employees realize substantially better customer satisfaction, higher employee productivity, better retention, fewer errors and, have proven to achieve 21% higher profitability (Gallup, Aug. 2018).

We’ve developed HDTalentBoost™ with more measurable business benefits and features to help you manage talent including the ability for you to share exciting new benefits with your team. Add your employees to the platform and they’ll enjoy engagement resources like, a National Employee Discount Program, world-class Learning & Education from renown education content providers EdX and Udemy, and all of the important business, industry, Hunter Douglas and lifestyle news they need to maintain top performance.

OmniChannel Recruitment Marketing

By Bob McCarthy

The economy continues to grow despite an historically challenging employment market that has rendered many businesses into a state of inertia as they struggle to find the time or resources necessary to attract and engage top talent. However, independent businesses continue to thrive, adding talent at a significant pace. According to the 2019 National Federation of Independent Business Jobs Report, 22% of small businesses began the year by adding more than 3 people per firm, supporting the notion that small and independent businesses are driving job creation. In fact, 56% of surveyed business owners indicate they are hiring or trying to hire however, 88% of those owners’ report few or no qualified applicants to positions.

You’ve heard it before: it’s a candidate’s market. And, candidates simply aren’t “applying” to jobs. Evolving from the “post and pray” approach, smart employers have implemented Consumer Marketing strategies to create an Omnichannel approach to talent attraction. Big Box employers understand it and are using Omnichannel to great success…so, can you.

Omnichannel is a well-rounded sophisticated marketing strategy that integrates communications across multiple channels including, branded career pages, search optimization (Google, Bing, Indeed), social media, video and localized networking to attract great talent.

It can be time-consuming and costly for an Independent Business to develop directly, however, HDTalentBoost offers a national branded talent development service that’s optimized for search, well-developed social channels on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and, Instagram and, our team of experienced talent managers are talking and networking with candidates all of the time, on your behalf.

The HDTalentBoost service has helped its member-Dealers recruit nearly 100 great people. Seeking Sales, Management, Installers, Designers, Office Support or perhaps a hybrid role? Contact us for help. If you’re interested to learn more, register for one of our twice weekly Webinars on Tuesday (4pm, EST) or Friday (12pm, EST).
