Far too many organisations pay lip service to recruiting new employees and the impact having a well thought out and robust recruitment process can have on your business both now and in the future.
How many of you place an opportunity cost on being involved in a recruitment process? What is the point of investing the time of senior leaders in a half baked selection process that will ultimately end in failure?
This is an insightful article summarising 7 key reasons or benefits to your business if you really invest in developing an effective recruitment or hiring process.
A great colleague is a precious commodity. All company owners and executives should agree. It’s almost impossible to find staff to perfectly and promptly meet expectations in terms of ability, motivation, attitude and culture. This is why compromises are frequently made in selection. The question is whether this is done consciously and do we really know what we give up on when saying ‘yes’ to a candidate. A sound recruitment process doesn’t always guarantee the perfect employee, but rather the potential for your candidate to develop into the ideal person for the job within a short space of time. We must also assess their motivation and willingness to learn, since progress is impossible without these. Don’t play blind if, with a little care, attention and the right tools, you can make the right choice.
