Not having any luck finding employees? Where on earth are these good employees anyway? Oh, maybe they’re all hiding under the same rock? Or maybe they aren’t. Believe it or not, good employees aren’t that hard to find. While on your search for employees it’s important to really do some analyzing on your part. Think about what you have to offer. Just like you choose employees, employees certainly do chose employers. Your business needs to be inviting so that someone actually wants to work for you. For example, when a candidate is on an interview they’re branding themselves. They want you to think of them as the best fit for the position. It’s the person conducting the interviews’ job to make sure the interviewee has a positive outlook on the employer and that they brand you. In order to attract great employees you must have the right people in charge of your in house hiring. That person should be able to tell the good hires apart from the bad hires. They should also thoroughly understand what your business needs because bad hires will cost you.
Consider your brand
Believe it or not, your brand has a voice. Let’s hope that it’s a good one. Job seekers do actually take the time to look into your brand. Whether it’s your company’s website, LinkedIn page or your businesses social media outlets. Trust us, applicants look! You’ll need to take a good look at your business. This requires a few questions to help you analyze if your business is in fact in good standing when it comes to your brand. You want to consider if your business constantly deals with employee turnover. Does your business offer extensive benefits? Does your business offer extensive pay? How does everyone work together? Think about how much time your employees spend at work. For example, let’s say that you have an employee who works on average of about 100 hours every two weeks. That employee spends a good amount of time there out of their week. So that means that it’s up to you as the boss to make sure that that employee is working in a healthy environment. Don’t make them dread coming to work everyday.
Stop looking for them
Yes, you read that correctly. Just simply stop looking! Take all of the online job listings that you had offline. You won’t be needing those anymore. Think of it as internal cleaning and creating a new fresh start. If you’re not having any luck by doing in-house hiring then you might want too just stop. Don’t put your business or your current employees at risk. You might be thinking if I stop then what exactly am I supposed to do? Why on earth would I just stop looking? Wouldn’t that make things worse? Not necessarily because friends, the best thing that you can do at this time is to get help from a staffing firm. You’ll get exactly what you want without conducting a single interview on your own. Putting you back into the office and allowing you to do what you really need to. Say bye-bye to the interviews and hello to top talent.
