It seems easy enough. Write a job description, post the job and watch the resumes and applications roll in.
It’s not quite that easy. Applicants evaluate what their potential employer will do for them just as an employer evaluates what an applicant will bring to the business.
Attracting the best candidates means having a place to work that not only satisfies, but exceeds the needs of its employees, both professionally and personally. It means being an employer that offers a work culture and workplace environment that favors the well-being of its employees – the economic side and the personal side.
It’s a choice to strive to be an employer of choice and Basin Electric has made it the cultural philosophy of the cooperative. “We want to be a great place to work, and we want to be recognized in the community as THE place to work,” says Ellen Holt, vice president of Human Resources.
