In the digital age, it’s critical to recruit tech professionals with the right skill sets. Thanks to one of our partners, Verified First, for sharing their insight with us.
Tech talent is in high demand, but short supply. To supply their companies with a steady talent pipeline, recruiters need to attract high-demand candidates. But in today’s market, it takes more than just a paycheck to recruit the best candidates.
To be successful, companies should consider these five best practices:
1. Consider leveraging freelancers and independent contractors.
Freelance work is a convenient way for tech workers to have more control over hours and wages. With national unemployment at a record low, tech workers have more options. This has led many tech professionals to join the gig economy.
Today, companies recognize they can’t afford to dismiss independent contractors as a viable talent source. As the labor market tightens, more businesses will tap into the gig economy to fill positions. Don’t overlook using these specialized workers to fill your positions.
