4. Strengthen your brand - to attract the right talents

Employer branding can be an issue for a new startup that is relatively unknown. Candidates may pass over your ads because they are unfamiliar with your brand. Focusing on building up a strong employer brand is crucial in convincing candidates why you are an employer of choice.

With Talention, your employer branding will be at the forefront of your career page and job ads. Measuring the success of your employer brand with specific KPIs is also a key part in strengthening your brand.

6. Build up a talent pool - to recruit faster the next time

Building up a talent pool is especially important for startups for two reasons. First, it will help you to stay in contact with qualified candidates and to nurture them over time. You can automate nurturing campaigns to be sent out to the candidates in your pool on a regular basis, such a newsletters or event invites.

Second, it creates a pool of qualified candidates that you can recruit from for future open positions. This will save a significant amount of effort, particularly because the candidates are also “warm” from your nurturing campaigns.
