Staffing firm Robert Half Technology offers tips to combat common recruiting obstacles

We can't meet our competitors' salary offers.
Strengthen your salary offers with non-monetary perks, like flexible work schedules, telecommuting options or additional vacation time, to entice top talent to join your team.
We lose good candidates to a slow hiring process.
Before posting an opening, establish the job description, involve key decision makers, and follow necessary HR procedures. Keep to a tight timeline and update candidates throughout the process.
Job seekers don't know we're a great place to work.
Showcase your company culture in recruiting materials and on social media, emphasizing your organization's mission, community outreach and benefits for employees.
We have difficulty competing with other local firms.
Do some research on your competition. What makes your organization unique and why should a job seeker decide to work for you? Highlight these strengths when recruiting tech professionals.
We don't offer unique and attractive perks and benefits.
It may be time to update your compensation package. Check out the Robert Half Technology 2019 Salary Guide* for research on what benefits, perks and incentives professionals want today.
