As Peak Season for hiring comes closer and closer for several industries, being prepared for the increased need for people can be the difference between success and failure.
First, while you may need to hire several people, remember that the quality of candidate matters more in the long term rather than larger numbers of candidates. Meet with leaders in the company. Plan a strategic marketing and sourcing process while keeping the absolute requirements in mind.
Screening and Hiring
Next, conduct face-to-face interviews and skill testings with each candidate to assess their skill-set, experience and cultural fit in addition to setting expectations of the position. You can work with on-site management to assess each candidate’s ability to meet the requirements of the position and then extend offers to the right candidates.
The Final Approvals
Finally, thoroughly evaluate the pool of associates for those with excellent work ethic, attitude, and attendance. Work on growing your new hires into leaders. This can improve your leadership from within. This will help show employees a path of progression towards more responsibilities. These actions can help you improve your attrition rate. It can also help you build better relationships with employees.
