Follow These Steps to Simplify Your Hiring Process
Hiring can be a difficult process, even for the most seasoned employer. Often, the process entails wading through mounds of applications and resumes, and hoping you choose the best candidate, only to find out the person you hired isn’t the right fit for the job later on. If you are ready to get your hiring process in order and find the talent your company needs to thrive, try taking the steps below.
Build a Database of Qualified Applicants
Do you have a database of qualified applicants on hand? If you don’t, get ready to spend a superfluous amount of time interviewing candidates. Successful employers understand that employee turnover is a part of life and even the most devoted workers will have to retire or find employment elsewhere one day. When that day arrives, it can help to have a database of qualified applicants on hand so you don’t have to spend your entire week reading resumes and weeding out the unqualified applicants.
Write a Stellar Job Description
Let’s get real – talented and experienced employees have their pick of jobs, and if your company doesn’t appeal to them, they will simply go to work for a competitor. You don’t want this to happen, so you will need to sell the job to prospective employees. It is advisable to include basic information about salary and necessary experience, but if you are trying to attract the best in the industry, try spicing up a job description with the following:
• Information about the company’s background, culture, and goals.
• Stories or testimonials from satisfied employees.
• A list of other perks your company offers.
Be sure to be detailed but succinct, and try to avoid intimidating applicants by including a laundry list of boring duties.
A bit of smart preparation is necessary if you want to simplify the hiring process. Have your interview questions prepared beforehand, be sure to familiarize yourself with the on-boarding process if you haven’t hired someone in a while. You can also speed up the process by having all necessary paperwork on hand.
