Hiring the Right People Can Make or Break a Business
If you own a business or are in charge of hiring for a bigger company, you and PassionHR Consulting know that finding the right employee for the job is sometimes easier said than done. Developing the right process and knowing what questions to ask can make the difference between adding an asset to your work and creating a disaster.When it comes to hiring new employees, developing and sticking to a plan is crucial. At PassionHR “we are genuinely passionate about assisting clients in developing recruiting strategies, tactics, and processes for hiring and retaining the talent management resources needed to support your business objectives.” Basically, with our recruiting services, we want to help you find just the right fit for your job opening by knowing the top ways to find them.
Know What’s Best for Your Company Once you have an opening and realize you need a new employee, think of the actual position first. Develop a thorough job description, complete with job goals, and be sure of the task you want done before finding the person to do it. Once a solid job description is created, then it’s time to start thinking of the right fit. If you could design the perfect employee in your mind, what would they be like? What skills would they possess? Look around at your current employee base and take stock. Being able to compare your top performers with their peers helps you as an employer see what helps them rise to the top, but also helps you see what is holding the others back. Having this background knowledge is always helpful in the next step of the process, which is getting your job opening out and to the right people.
First Impressions Can Change the Game When looking for a babysitter for your children you don’t scribble a note in crayon and post it on the local bulletin board. Knowing where to advertise can be just as important as what you advertise. You research and know your audience, so that when putting the question out there, the people who answer are already within a narrowed field. With so many advertising platforms these days, it can be hard to know whether to advertise on the internet or to stick with your local paper, or both?! At PassionHR, our experienced staff can help you find the right path to the perfect hire. Once you’ve got your opening out to the right audience, the resumes should start coming in. This is where that research and job description come in very handy. Being able to go through your prospects, already knowing what skills are needed to reach your business goals, helps you weed through the candidates that don’t meet those expectations and hang on to the ones that do.
The Pre-Screening Process for Your Applicants After you’ve gone through your applicants and have the stack of potentials, what next? Sometimes people only like to deal in face-to-face conversations, but going through a pre-screening process, such as phone interviews and help narrow down the field even more, saving time and resources in the long run. Once you have your final list of people, you can really “get down to business”. Resumes and phone chats can only tell you so much about a person. Whether you have them in to talk or you’re testing their abilities, bringing a potential employee in and interacting with them in person can sometimes seal the deal or tell you for sure that they are not the right fit. Once you’ve found that perfect fit, you move on to the offer, including job duties, compensation and benefits. The whole process can be long and tiring, but at the end of the day hopefully you’ll find the right employee to fill the position and help you reach your business goals!
