Recruiting for impact involves a deep understanding of a candidate's desires and values and connecting them with rewarding career opportunities. This is a shift from traditional recruiting methods that prioritize filling roles quickly, towards a more candidate-focused approach. Employers should consider rewarding opportunities to include roles that offer scope for making a real difference, and providing meaningful career advancement. When employers focus their recruitment strategies on the bigger picture, including betting on potential rather than experience and ensuring diversity, they are able to provide a more impactful career and in return earn loyalty from their employees. Effective communication is crucial for understanding a candidate's motivations and how these can align with a company's mission and values.
