If you’re finding it difficult to hire, it’s not because your pay plan is too low, or because you’re not spending enough on a recruiting campaign. It’s because prospective employees are checking you out online… and they aren’t liking what they’re seeing.

The results are immediate and more impactful than any expensive recruitment ads. Improve your employee reviews today and get more candidates tomorrow!
The struggle for a better online reputation is real
You know how difficult it can be to find the best and brightest candidates for your open positions. If you can’t find employees, you can’t grow. You’re doing all the things you’ve been told will have an impact on hiring…posting on all the top job boards…hiring recruiting firms…running ads on billboards, tv, and radio…yet nothing seems to be working.
You’re stuck spinning your wheels and your company is falling behind when it could be growing by leaps and bounds. Yes, finding great candidates can be challenging. Before you spend another dime boosting a job post, running a recruitment ad or hiring a headhunter, fix the real reason you’re struggling to hire… your online reputation.
Company background check
Just as you would do with any key employee, your candidates are doing a background check on you. Before anyone fills out an application for an open position, they will undoubtedly look online to see what kind of workplace it is. They will want to know if there is a good company culture… if there is a maniac supervisor… if the benefits are solid… if the vending machine is always stocked with snacks. In short, they’ll want to make an informed decision on where they could potentially spend 40 or more hours a week for their foreseeable future! Who can blame them?
The grim reality of poor Employee reviews
Unless you’ve established a bulletproof process where your happy employees are given an easy pathway to leave a review, you’re likely suffering from a poor rating on all the major company review sites. Why? You know your employees are generally happy… and many have been there for a very long time. The reason? Content people aren’t generally motivated to leave a review organically. Yes, they will gladly leave a review if asked to do so, but they won’t usually make the effort to leave a review on their own. Meanwhile, that employee that was with you for 3 weeks, always showed up late, called out sick and was a poor worker will GLADLY take the time to leave you a horrible review after they leave. And they’ll be very thorough in why they didn’t last. See the problem? It’s a natural tendency for unhappy people to want to share their opinions far more often than happy people.
