Recruiting and Retention Problems
Recruiting today is cited as one of the top challenges facing employers, regardless of company size. With the current talent shortage, and the importance of passive candidates, smaller employers are at a disadvantage when competing for the best talent.
This is often due to a lack of employer branding and offering employee benefits that are below industry standards. The latter can also negatively impact employee turnover, which can prevent business growth and cost organizations a lot of money in trying to hire a replacement.
