how salary fits into your talent attraction strategy

It probably comes as no surprise that job seekers list salary as their #1 consideration when looking for a new job. To capture the attention of talent, you must offer competitive salaries that accurately reflect your location and the skills you're looking for. However, salary is just one part of your total compensation package. You also need to consider your brand's reputation, values and other benefits and perks such as office atmosphere, health and dental benefits, vacation, health and wellness initiatives and more.
