Streamline Your Hiring Processby Alice Porter Business Writer Alice
As a hiring manager or an owner of the business, you will be aware that hiring more staff is essential if you are looking to grow your business. It’s important that you meet the needs of a growing industry by looking for a quick hire.
One of the most common issues faced by decision makers is whether or not they are able to
Market the role:
Before you begin searching for the perfect candidate, you must first have a clear understanding of everything this entails. During the hiring process, it’s important to assess which qualities are necessary to complete the role successfully and also which qualities are desirable. In your marketing plan, it’s important to be equally as flexible as you are intransigent.
If a candidate comes along who ticks most of the important boxes, but needs development in some areas, you have to assess the potential of this individual before you dismiss them. Do they have the potential to be great for the company? Do you have the resources to be able to get them up to speed quickly? If you believe this to be true, then do not let them go in the meantime.
Once you have a clear understanding of what you are looking for, you need to make sure that your business is something that candidates are looking for in equal measures. Be sure to highlight the perks of the job, i.e. a 2pm finish on a Friday, or a bonus structure.
The selling point to your business are the most important part of your recruitment marketing plan, as they could be the reason that candidates choose to apply.
Refine your options:
It’s important to only progress with ‘A players’ when making a quick hire. Scaling for quality will mean that only quality is brought on board during the hiring process, this will lead to quicker and more bountiful success for your business.
Each new person who you hire should be more talented than the last, this will help to grow your business into a much more accomplished and substantial operation over time. Hiring extremely talented people will create an environment that breeds talent and motivation.
Look for leadership:
It’s important to make sure that you hire people who could lead a team in three years or less. Business is very fast paced and a lot can happen within that time.
One of the biggest mistakes that hiring managers can make is to hire an individual who is perfect for the role, but who shows to motivation, or who does not want to progress within the company.
Instead, it’s important to make sure that you create a work environment where individuals can grow and become more successful and in charge of their own workloads.
