Streamline Your Hiring Process For Better Results

For as vital to the success of their company as the hiring process is, it is surprising just how many employers mishandle it. It is understandable how certain things can get overlooked: you become more focused on the workers that you already have and the projects they are working on, you prioritize new investments, and so on. But if these other priorities come at the expense of a streamlined, efficient hiring process, your entire company could suffer as a result. Say goodbye to the piles of paperwork and applications and follow these tips instead to create a hiring process that gets you the results you want.

At the Heart of the Matter

One mistake many companies make during the hiring process is writing job descriptions that practically anyone could fill. It may be simple to provide a general list of preferences to accompany your advertisement for the job opening, but it won’t get you the kind of applications you really want to see. If you are looking for someone with stellar Photoshop skills, make it clear that this is a 100 percent must-have. Leaving things in generic terms will leave you with dozens of applications to wade through of people with equally generic skills.

Narrowing the Field

Using services such as background checks can help you to eliminate bad-fit candidates before they even come through the door. Keeping the field narrowed to a select few applicants allows you the time you need to really discover in-depth information about the applicants that could potentially become your newest employees, rather than wasting your time on people who would simply never work out.

Involve more than just the managerial staff in your hiring decisions. One way to be able to determine whether or not a candidate will be the right fit for your company is to actually place them within the company and see how they get along with other employees. Those who do not seem to be able to adapt with the dynamic of the office can be taken off the short list, while those who do will become even stronger candidates.
