AppleOne Employment Agency "Pay The Smart Way"

What Could Possibly Be Different About A Salary Survey?

When the Director of Marketing at AppleOne asked me to write an email for their 2013 Salary Survey, the call to action seemed 'out of place'. To access the survey, corporate HR managers would have to agree to an in-person meeting with the AppleOne sales team rather than just download the survey instantaneously from the web (like the gazillion other free salary surveys).

So I created a concept service to add valuation: Pay The Smart Way. This pro-bono AppleOne Advisory comes with a bonus, too.

Bottom line: The Director of Marketing hated the piece. But I wonder, would the sales team and/or CEO felt the same way?

Are you losing revenue because salary decisions are more complex? In fact, [FIRST NAME], I’m writing you today because 2013 is ushering in unprecedented money challenges in the human resources industry. Consider four impending truths: “With the new Obama healthcare law requiring businesses with 50 or more full-time workers to offer coverage or be fined, employers must plan and rethink their workforce now more than ever. New taxes and mandates will complicate these decisions and cost businesses money in the long run.” - Amanda Austin, National Federation Independent Businesses director of federal public policy “For Americans eager to land a new job, win a promotion, or snag a decent raise, 2013 will be job seekers best chance since 2007 to get ahead.” - Money Magazine’s Make More in 2013 “With employee turnover up 30%, nearly 70% of businesses are taking steps -- including pay increases -- to prevent the exodus of top talent.” - Consulting firm OI Partners “Demand for skilled positions is growing much faster than supply, leaving many employers unable to find qualified workers. Employers expect to provide higher compensation for both current staff and prospective employees.” - 2013 Annual Hiring Forecast, CareerBuilder.com PAY THE SMART WAY ADVISORY 2013 20133 RY 2013
  2. 2. Tia Dobi’s Email Copy for AppleOne Tia Dobi, Copywriter tiadobi.com tiad@earthlink.net Meanwhile… as the number of employers adding fulltime headcount is trending up from 2012, so is the number of those planning to reduce staff and hire temporary workers as a way to maximize Obama Care wisely.

  3. 3. Tia Dobi’s Email Copy for AppleOne Tia Dobi, Copywriter tiadobi.com tiad@earthlink.net  The three simple Fortune 500 tricks we’ve uncovered to improve your recruiting efficiency in 2013  How to cast a wider net without incurring avalanches of under-qualified candidates  Why the stigma that diamonds cannot be found amongst the unemployed is no longer true… and how to uncover gems who need little or no polishing and moves through… A hand-held tour into the AppleOne 2013 Salary Guide The 2013 AppleOne Salary Guide: Compensation And Human Resource Planning brings together pay findings from a sample set of 225,000 placements and job orders processed by AppleOne and our U.S. affiliates (in over 200 locations), as well as interviews with HR and labor experts, backed with 2012 direct-to-client surveys.

  4. 4. Tia Dobi’s Email Copy for AppleOne Tia Dobi, Copywriter tiadobi.com tiad@earthlink.net need(s) and zip code location… your AppleOne representative is going to reveal that to you. Having the AppleOne 2013 Salary Guide in your hands is like having a detailed blueprint for protecting and growing your wealth over the months ahead. Read what this HR manager has to say… Jane Doe VP of Human Resources and Facilities ACME, Inc. Los Angeles, CA What could possibly be different about a salary survey? “If Warren Buffet counseled on compensation, he’d use the data published by AppleOne. In 2012 their ‘ethical espionage’ gave us both the larger picture and detailed minutiae to make wise wage decisions in a town clamoring for qualified applicants. The 2013 salary guide warrants a closer look as we seek to minimize our exposure to federal manipulation.” Now for that bonus I promised you… Hiring without regret: a secret 90% of employers miss According to MSN Money, 69% percent of employers report that their companies have been adversely affected by a bad hire in 2012, with 41% of those businesses estimating the cost to be more than $25,000, and 24% saying a bad hire cost them more than $50,000. Simultaneously, 43% of recruiters said they needed to fill positions quickly. Yet many find it takes too long to find people well suited to the company, or even worth interviewing. The experience is frustrating… and not necessary. Here at AppleOne, we know firsthand how meticulous recruiters can be. You carefully consider where to advertise for candidates, maximize your search dollars, and do all you can to get a good mix of potential applicants. The answer to identifying better candidates earlier is simple, but if you don’t know about it, it’s easy to miss. Construct job posts that truly connect with your candidates. “I got so much value in terms of both the 'big strategy picture' and how to go about it, as well as the 'minutiae'.”
  5. 5. Tia Dobi’s Email Copy for AppleOne Tia Dobi, Copywriter tiadobi.com tiad@earthlink.net In 2013, becoming the leader employees will follow is key. The very best job posts get in sync with what your top candidates are thinking and feeling. Adding your company’s #1 Attractor Factor… the why you do what you do (not just who you are and what you need) will revolutionize your hiring. Avoid the Employee Rotisserie: The secret of turning job posts into happy, loyal employees Traditional job posts show candidates what the company does and what the company needs. But the most important attractor factor to finding and keeping top talent—the why your company does what you do and a clear sense of why a talent would want to work for you—is sorely missing. Today’s job seekers are becoming more aware of the ‘why’ in everything… what’s your cause, your belief, your purpose? Uncovering and using your why in your job descriptions is your #1 way to attract and hire candidates without regret. Put Power in Your Positioning When you sign-up for Pay The Smart Way you’ll automatically receive this one-page worksheet that walks you through the four questions to uncover your WHY. Fill it out, then review and tweak it with your AppleOne consultant during your Advisory Session. The best part? Whenever you write a job post that includes the Attractor Factor, you’re birthing a copywriting asset that can be used repeatedly. Traditional job posts list needs… putting hiring managers at risk for hiring unsuitable employees. Attractor Factor How do you know if your job post messaging is working as well as it should? Why do you exist and how do you communicate that in your recruiting? AppleOne’s Attractor Factor worksheet helps make everyone a corporate entrepreneur who is a growth agent for the company because WHY attracts and retains passion.
