Being able to recruit and hire the right people for your business is a crucial asset to the future growth of your company. We already talked about what the recruitment process is (take a look at it here) So how do you know who the right people are? Well, we’re going to go through a few ways to optimize your recruitment and hiring process to ensure you get the right people for the job!
Ways to boost your recruitment and hiring process!
The first thing you want to do is have an active hiring plan in place. This is just a mapped out process of how you will go about hiring candidates based on the job requirements, experience, personality, work history, and how easily they will fit in with your company. Try making a checklist to help you make the tougher decisions via process of elimination.
Next, you want to make sure that you actually get applications coming in. Make sure to utilize your website, public job boards, and other advertising avenues to get the word out about your employment opportunities. It also helps to be a company with a good public image. Treat your current employees well and chances are that they will tell their friends and family how well they like their position at your company thereby boosting your community approval!
You’ll also want to make sure that you have defined the position or positions that you are searching for exactly. No vague descriptions here. Letting a potential employee apply for a job that they may not be best suited for because they didn’t know all the details is a sure fire way of upping your turnover rate. Clearly identify each trait and expectation of the job that’s up for grabs. Unqualified candidates may weed their selves out once they learn that the job requirements are beyond their skill or sometimes below it.
One of the greatest and overlooked ways to hire efficiently is to keep a roster of former applicants that you felt were a good fit for your company, but were unable to hire in the past. Keep in contact with these people over the time between their first interaction with you and your eventual need of their skill sets. Maintaining a good relationship with quality potential employees can save you a lot of time and trouble in the fresh recruiting process.
Optimizing your recruitment and hiring process isn’t as hard as it may seem. Remember that planning and collaboration are your best tools to strengthening your company through the hiring period.
