Top-Tier Recruiting Strategies for Small Businesses

Top-Tier Recruiting Strategies for Small Businesses

Finding great talent can be one of the toughest parts of running a small or midsized business. When you consider that unemployment is at a 17-year low and that job switching is at an all-time high, the task of recruiting top talent can look daunting. Unlike large organizations that have many resources dedicated to hiring, small business owners are often handling it on their own, in addition to many other HR tasks. Recruiting can end up taking valuable time from business owners and hiring managers that could instead be used to boost sales, engage employees and help customers. According to small business owners surveyed by ZipRecruiter® in 2017, 90 percent of respondents reported that candidate quality and availability are their biggest roadblocks when it comes to hiring.1  This is why I am excited to announce that we are teaming with ZipRecruiter to help our small business clients connect with the right candidates quickly. Through this partnership, we are bringing ZipRecruiter’s sophisticated matching technology to the more than 500,000 small...

How Can Startups and Entrepreneurs Compete in the War for Talent? With a PEO

How Can Startups and Entrepreneurs Compete in the War for Talent? With a PEO

It’s no secret that starting and running a small business is no small feat. Business owners are often pulled in what feels like a million directions — striving to ensure the business is growing, clients are happy, and that they actually get to sleep at night (or at least some nights!). But if you ask many entrepreneurs, they will tell you the one thing they never imagined would be so hard was managing their employees (even if they only have two) and providing the HR and benefits today’s top talent requires. As the workforce continues to undergo significant generational shifts and increasing competition in the war for talent, startups – by sheer nature of their size — are faced with challenges in delivering the attractive benefits that come more easily to larger organizations. As a result, working with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is a popular option that many entrepreneurs are considering. ADP TotalSource®, the largest PEO in the United States with more than 400,000 worksite employees, has traditionally...
