Is This Your Situation: You Need to Make Hiring Easier?


Hiring is a necessary aspect of business, but it is by far one of the most difficult to get right. No matter what you try, some new employees succeed while others fail. And just when you think you've figured out the formula, everything changes. So how do you know that you've made the best recruiting decision? Here are six tips to help you choose wisely and hire right the first time.

  1. Start with a good job description. Finding the right candidate starts long before you receive the first resumes. It is important that you effectively communicate the job to prospective employees from the start. When crafting an ad, don't focus solely on the job duties and expectations. Instead, let someone know why they want to work with your company.
  2. Post on multiple sites. We offer an EE OnBoarding program that allows you to post on multiple site without the hassle of having multiple accounts. This in turn gives you a bigger pool of potential hires.
  3. Ask your staff to help. You already have a great resource for finding and hiring new candidates, so tap into that. Ask your team for their referrals or recommendations. When you're interviewing outside candidates, ask your staff to help with the interview process since they will be working closely with the new employee. Ask them for their honest opinions. With the EE OnBoarding program there is a workflow manager for the hiring staff to rate the potential employees on different factors.
  4. Build your company's reputation. You also want to ensure that potential employees are excited about working for you rather than your competition. Be a part of your local community. Create positive word-of-mouth buzz about your company. Manage your social media and messaging.
  5. Don't wait until your need is urgent. It is also critical that you don't wait until you have an urgent need to begin the hiring process. This leads to rushed decisions and bad hires. Instead, constantly be on the lookout for new talent or people who would fit into your company culture. Build relationships, not a resume database.
  6. Focus on onboarding. Those first few days and weeks can make or break a new hire situation. Get your new employee set-up faster by having them do all of their new hire information virtually (Less paper for you too). Finally, your responsibility as a hiring manager doesn't end when the new employee is on your payroll.  Don't just train them on their job — help them understand the corporate culture and company values as well.

Looking to turn your payroll into profit just from hiring employees? 

Mass.gov gives an overview of what the WOTC (Work Opportunity Tax Credit) program is. Our EE OnBoarding program allows you to see which candidates will give you a WOTC tax credit and supplies you with the forms to give to your accountant. 

Recruitment is not a one-time event but an ongoing process for you and your company. If you want help setting up a long-term recruitment process, just ask me how!
