Some companies manage to attract top talent, again and again. But how? Many of these "applicant magnets" offer average salaries and benefits, yet workers flock to join their ranks. The truth is that job seekers look for more than a paycheck. And when they find an employer with the ability to make their work-life fulfilling, they pursue a position with that business with passion.
So how can you cultivate the X factor for your business? Use these tips as a guide:
Hiring managers in Orlando, Tampa, and across Central Florida know the importance of making the most of the time they spend with job candidates.

Hiregy’s recruiting services are built around a commitment to connect exceptional people in Central Florida, including Orlando, Tampa and St. Petersburg. Here’s why.
We recently sat down with the CEO of an insurance firm who was struggling to fill a key sales position. The spot had been empty for three months and she was ready to bring on a recruiting partner to help fill the role. By asking a few questions, we realized that the empty position was draining her company of thousands of dollars each month. No one had realized it because her team was juggling more work and overflowing to-do lists due to the empty position. The hidden costs of hiring were damaging her business.
Some costs related to expanding your staff are easy to track, such as the price of advertising, background checks and new equipment. Others require a bit of digging to reveal, but are still relatively straightforward to calculate, such as the value of a hiring manager's time spent writing job descriptions and interviewing. So what are the hidden costs — the sneaky, silent items that drain value from businesses, often without their even knowing? Keep your eye out for these stealthy wealth eaters.
A new year is upon us as we are about to welcome 2016. For many this is a time to really take a step back and ask themselves if they are happy with their company and their current role.

Having a lunch meeting with a client has many advantages over meeting with that client in their office. There is a great article on Inc.com that lists the reasons you should be scheduling more business lunches. These include less distractions from events going on in the office, the neutral setting of the restaurant (neither you or the client are at your "home turf" of the office) and the shared experience of having a nice meal. Also, it doesn't hurt that you are picking up the check.

Are you hiring like a snail? Does it take your company forever to make a final decision on a candidate? Sure, you want to learn the most you can about an applicant, but putting them through a hiring process that involves multiple phone screens, an in-person interview with Human Resources, a second round interview with a Hiring Manager, a third round interview with a panel of executives, a personality profile, the Wonderlic test, and then a professional case study to top it all off, is overkill.
