Your business is just as good as your team. It is critical to put together a hiring process that makes your team of employees an asset to your company, not a detriment. Therefore, it is important to understand exactly how to create a hiring process that will only benefit your business. Certain hiring practices can ensure that the outcome is what you desired. After all, your small business is yours and it is your responsibility to assemble the best team possible.
Know whom you want to hire
Before the actual hiring begins, you should sit down and figure out what your ideal candidate looks like. What qualities and qualifications do you want in your employees? That is an important question to ask yourself.
Once you figure that out, scribe a detailed description of the job’s responsibilities and what you expect out of them. This will help save you time in the hiring process as those who don’t match the job description most likely didn’t apply, filtering out some interviewees that could have been a waste of precious time.
Determine an effective advertising strategy
Once you understand who your ideal candidate is, then you need to figure out how you will reach them. In this modern world, everything revolves around technology. The day of newspaper adverts has nearly died as job searches have transitioned to the web.
Utilize hiring websites like LinkedIn, Indeed, ZipRecruiter, Monster, Care.com, and many more. There are endless resources online to help you reach your target audience. Even social media sites like Facebook and Instagram can get the word out there.
Make sure your business shines
The hiring process is a two-way street. Just as you have an idea of whom you want to hire, the applicant has an idea of what type of company they want to work for. If you have a fun work environment, share some examples. Or if the business has had major accomplishments in the past, share those too so the applicant knows your business is successful. Just as you have to say yes to them, they have to accept the job offer post-interview.
Ensure your hiring team is up to the task
Whether it is only you doing the hiring process or you have a manager/HR doing it, you need to make sure that you/they are ready to represent the company. Create a comfortable environment during the interview so the applicant is more likely to show their true selves. Interviews are important in the sense they show the applicant what you value and how the business is operated. The interviewer is just as important as the interviewee.
Implement an engaging orientation
There is a funny saying that sometimes orientations should be called “boreientations” because of how boring they can be. This is your new employee’s first glimpse into the business environment you are striving to achieve. Don’t be afraid to have a mix of business and fun. Engagement makes the employee feel like they will be heard and is a great way to begin the employee/employer relationship.
