We met absolutely brilliant Human Resources experts at the last CIPD conference and exhibition in Manchester. We’ve asked them to share top HR tips with SMEs and they were more than happy to do it. Now you can read them at SME Business Academy.

In this series of articles we are sharing with you Human Resources advice from experts including Andy Sumner (Managing Director at Monster),  Lauren Wright (Director at Glassdoor for Employers – EMEA), Declan Byrne (Managing Director at One4all), Richard Atkins (Exec Vice President Oracle Cloud Applications at Certus Solutions) and Adrian McDonagh (Founder/Director at EasyWeb Recruitment).


3 things you can do right now to make a difference - Lauren Wright


Engage with your employees and candidate feedback

This could include anything from internal surveys to capturing fresh employee information using Glassdoor to find out what people are saying about your company right now. The vast majority (78%) of job seekers say employee ratings and reviews influence their decision on where to work. So you need to be engaged and in-touch.

Refresh social media messaging

Take a look across all of your channels where you are socially active and make sure it’s all up-to-date. Do they all look and feel the same? A candidate will research all your active social media channels when going for a job, so make sure you don’t put them off!


Embrace transparency

All of the above the above can be done with – and in addition to – your Glassdoor strategy. Showcase your transparent culture by claiming your profile and displaying the ‘OpenCompany’ badge on your page – all for free!
