According to Matt, this authenticity acts like a magnet, drawing individuals who resonate with his company’s culture and values. It’s a reminder that hiring isn’t just about skill sets; it’s also about finding that special someone who fits seamlessly into your company’s vibe.
So, what’s on the horizon? Matt is all set to create a hiring pipeline for Bilz, his father’s industrial supply company. His secret weapon? A database packed with 12,000 loyal customers, each with a story to tell. Matt plans to tap into this treasure trove, identifying candidates who come pre-equipped with an industry understanding.
As for his hiring campaign, Matt’s game plan is nothing short of genius. He’s got exciting videos in the works, showcasing the inner workings of the company, introducing his dad to the world, and delivering a compelling call to action for potential hires. Platforms like LinkedIn and trusty email are his go-to tools for reaching out and sparking conversations about exciting career prospects.
