As your business grows, you’ll need to take on more staff. With more workers you can take on more projects, and bring in more revenue, that’s how simple business can be. Or is it? Sometimes finding the right worker isn’t as simple as you may think. To get the best results, it’s important to spend time finding the right person to fit in with what your company really needs. A recent article in Entrepreneur magazine looked at how to recruit workers who fit in with your company vision. Here, Angel Business Suite review the article, and consider the lessons that can be learned from it.
“There are many factors that can influence a business’ success, but hiring the right workers is one of the most important”, said the operations manager of Angel Business Suite. “Businesses who take a little extra care and thought with their recruitment process will really reap the rewards. This excellent article has some very useful tips on finding a stellar employee.”
When you advertise a position within the company you may be inundated with replies, many of whom will seem to meet your basic criteria, so how do you determine who’s best for the role? One way is to be more specific in your job advertisement. Go into detail, and ask for more from your candidates. In this way you’ll get fewer, but more relevant, candidates. Be transparent and upfront with clients, and explain the values that lie at the heart of your company. Do the candidates share your enthusiasm for these values, and for your corporate vision?
It’s also beneficial to build a strong social media presence. Candidates will be attracted to your company by your postings, and this can help to ensure that applicants really buy into what you’re trying to achieve. Another great tip within the article is to meet a promising candidate outside of the formal interview setting. Invite them to a team meeting for example, and see how they interact with others within your team.”
“All of these tips can help you find a candidate who will help your business move forwards, but it’s important to remember that interviews are a two way process”, said the operations manager. “You’ll need to impress the ideal candidate as well. One way of doing this is to ensure you have a high quality office space or interview room, and a modern working environment that people will want to spend their career in.”
