MPO: 3 talent-centric measures to edge out competitors.

MedTech companies are continuing to face challenges around rising costs, regulatory complexity and ongoing talent scarcity. The best professionals are being actively recruited throughout the life sciences industry, as well as into other verticals. Competition remains fierce.

Tania de Decker, managing director of Global Strategic Accounts for Randstad Enterprise Group, has insights on how to gain a competitive advantage when hiring for AI, automation, cybersecurity and STEM skills. 

“Companies can stay ahead of the competition with three, people-centric strategies: emphasize the talent experience, use data to optimize recruitment, and align [your] employer brand with job seekers’ expectations.” These three strategies go hand-in-hand in creating a talent-first approach to hiring.

Success starts with improving the candidate experience at every touch  point to minimize drop-offs from the application process. Supporting data is also important in providing market insights that help improve the quality of job offers. But, above all, the employer brand — the company’s story, beliefs and promise to those who work there — can help differentiate opportunities in meaningful ways.
