Consider widening your pool of potential candidates to include:
- different ethnic and cultural groups
- people from different generations
- mothers returning to work
- mature-aged workers.

There’s more to attracting good employees than just offering good pay. Look at the benefits you and your competitors offer. Could you come up with some different or better benefits that would suit your employees?
Reputation and branding
Is your business known to be a good place to work?
A positive reputation and brand will make your business more attractive, so you will be able to select from a bigger pool of candidates.
Your business and the community Job seekers will be more strongly attracted to a business that is known for being socially responsible. What can your business do to become more involved with community issues and events?
