5 ways to hire a perfect employe for your business
Hiring is one of the most important things you’ll do as a business owner, and it’s also probably one of the hardest. Hiring a new employee is a huge commitment for both parties, so it’s smart to take extra time to find the right person for the job.
Here are five tips to help make sure you hire someone who will be an asset to your team:
Clearly define the job
- Know what you want
- Know what you need
- Know the job and its responsibilities in detail, so that when it comes time to write a job description, everything is clearly defined and all questions have been answered before they arise during interviews
Be prepared to answer questions and provide information about the job, your company and culture.
When it comes to the interview process, don’t be afraid of the questions. It’s better to know what they are and how you can answer them than be caught off-guard by a question that you’ve never considered.
- Know the job description and be able to explain it in detail: Before you start interviewing, make sure that everyone on your team knows what they are looking for in an employee. If there are specific requirements or qualifications necessary for applicants, make sure that those details are clearly outlined in their job descriptions so candidates know exactly what they need to do during their interviews.
- Be prepared to answer questions about your company and its culture: The hiring process isn’t just about finding someone who can do a good job–it’s also about finding someone who will fit into your organization and culture well enough that they’ll stay with us long-term (or at least until we find another person like them). Make sure you’re providing enough information about benefits and perks so potential employees feel excited about working at our place!
Provide an employment application
- Provide an employment application
- Use a template on the internet, or create one yourself. You can ask for information about education, skills and experience, and references. You may also want to include a resume in your application packet so that applicants can upload it directly from their computer instead of having to print out copies for each place they apply at (which is annoying)
Open discussions around compensation, benefits and other perks
As the hiring manager, it’s your job to make sure that your employees are getting paid what they deserve. But how do you know if they’re getting paid enough? The first thing to do is look at market rates for similar positions in your area and industry. Once you have an idea of what other companies are paying, compare those figures with what you’ve offered.
If it turns out that your salary isn’t competitive with other companies in the industry or market rate for the position (or if there simply isn’t data on comparable positions), then it may be time to revisit salary negotiations with this candidate or others who’ve expressed interest but haven’t yet accepted offers from other firms–especially if those firms are offering higher salaries than yours!
Ask for references and check them out before making a final offer
Ask for references and check them out before making a final offer.
You may be tempted to skip this step, but it’s crucial for you to have a complete picture of the candidate’s work history. Ask for references that will be relevant to the job you’re hiring for–for example, if your company offers customer service, contact previous employers and ask about their experience dealing with customers.
You should also ask at least three references (if possible), so that if one doesn’t respond quickly or doesn’t give you much information about their former employee’s performance, there are still others available who can help fill in gaps in knowledge about the applicant.
After contacting these people, ask questions about how well they think their former employee performed on specific tasks related to what he/she was hired for at each job listed on his/her resume; this way there won’t be any surprises once he/she starts working for you!
Once again: always get permission from someone before contacting them. You don’t want anyone thinking that their privacy has been violated by having someone call them unexpectedly!
Your first hire is a big deal so don’t rush it or settle for less than you really want or need
Hiring the wrong person can be a costly mistake. On the other hand, hiring the right person can be an investment that pays off in many ways:
- Your business will grow faster and more profitably with employees who are committed to their work and happy in their jobs
- A motivated team makes your customers happier too, so they’ll come back again and again!
The first hire is a big deal, so don’t rush it or settle for less than you really want or need. Make sure that person reflects your company culture and values, has the skills and experience needed to excel in the job they’ll be doing, understands what’s expected of them and will fit into your team well. If possible, try to find someone who has worked with similar companies before so they know what it takes to succeed there too!
