hiring the right person 1 - How to Improve Your Hiring Process

If you are the owner of a company, hiring staff is an inevitable task you will have to go through no matter what. This process, however, is much more than just going through some resumes and carrying out interviews. It is the starting point for the workforce on whom the future of your company will depend. The workforce of an organization can make or break it and this all depends on the owner for hiring that workforce. If you are finding it difficult it is a good idea to visit a hiring website such as Lensa and refer to their tips for employers.

There are a few steps you can take that will ensure you encourage the right kind of applicants to submit their resumes:

Build a Strong Brand

This refers to building a name for your company by way of brand recognition, replying to reviews, keeping the company’s profile up to date, and being an overall active and involved employer. Building a strong employer brand reduces employee turnover by about 30 percent and encourages individuals to apply in your company and want to stay part of your task force.

Move Quickly and Efficiently

Good job candidates don’t stay available for long as they apply efficiently to a number of companies that are willing to hire them for competitive salary packages. A good employer has to be able to identify these employees and work quickly to hire them before they get snatched by another organization. It is a good idea to keep in touch with them during the hiring process even if you are still debating about hiring them to ensure you stay in their vision and stay available to them as an option during the time you make a decision about them.

List Jobs Accompanied With Good Job Descriptions

Companies often list job descriptions with a list of job responsibilities the applicants will have to carry out once they are hired. However, studies have shown this method deters many candidates from applying for the position.

Companies are advised to use one of two methods for listing a job one which mentions the benefits the company can provide its employees and the other highlighting the expectations of the company from its employees. These methods encourage the candidates to submit their applications and apply to the job posting.

Find the Right Person for The Job

Most employers while conducting interviews focus on the skill set an individual possesses rather than the personality of the individual and the traits they will be bringing to your company. However, they fail to realize, a skill can be learned but personalities cannot be changed. If the most skilled worker has a personality that can set back your company’s morale they are not a good employee for your company.

Keep Up To Date With Your Reviews

Last but definitely not the least important of steps is to keep an out for employee reviews and employee satisfaction. New employees looking to get hired will often want to get inside information about the treatment they will be receiving once employed by you. therefore, make sure you are taking good care of your current employees so they spread positive reviews instead of negative ones which will deter many possible candidates from applying to your company.
