5 Tips for Hiring the Right Employee

Process for hiring the right employee

A successful enterprise is not produced singlehandedly, and hiring the right employee is a challenging process that can make or break your business. Hiring the wrong employee can be expensive and damaging to your work environment, while hiring the right employee will improve productivity and bring positivity to your work environment.

Define the Job

It’s counterproductive to hire an employee without developing a job analysis. Take the necessary time to outline all the duties, responsibilities, qualifications, and desired personality fits for the job. This will lead you in the right direction to develop a proper job description for the first step of the recruiting process in finding the right employee.

Sometimes schedules get tight and the hiring manager is not available to conduct the interview. Ideally, the interview would be rescheduled to a suitable time, but in the case of a position needing to be filled right away, there are other strategies you can implement. If your hiring manager is not available, look to your team manager or team lead to conduct the interview. Be sure you have a list of all requirements and interview questions to check off. This will keep you on track with the candidate’s qualifications.

Are They Committed to Their Career?

When hiring someone knew, you want someone that is going to stick around. Be aware of job and career hoppers. Many people switch jobs and career frequently, just to get a higher salary. Search for candidates that are committed to their career and growth within a company. Employees are investments and ultimately you want that investment returned.

Do not ignore the job duration on a candidate’s resume. If a candidate does not display loyalty to any company, hiring this person could be more of a loss than a gain.

Test Their Skills

Make time to organize cumulative exams or different methodologies to assess your candidates learning and analytical skills. Its critical to not only evaluate candidates based on their resumes because resumes aren’t always truthful. They may have experience listed in many things but not list how knowledgeable they are. A candidate may look good on paper, but what you really want is a candidate with the right educational requirements and skills.

Are They Compatible?

Hiring employees that are compatible with your company’s culture is of key importance for team work and productivity. Asks questions regarding how they’ve handled previous clients and scenarios to gauge their social skills and business relationships. Previous relationships can tell you a lot about their compliance and can affect your decision for hire or non-hire. It is also beneficially to have the rest of your team sit down for a round table discussion with the candidate at the end of the interview. This will insure the compatibility with other office staff.

Check Backgrounds and References

It’s not uncommon to run into the occasionally fabricated resume. Thorough background checks are one of the most important steps when hiring an employee. Be sure to verify that all the experience, skills, education, competences, etc. are truly possessed by your candidate. Not all people are trustworthy, and you may be surprised at who and what some are willing to do to gain an opportunity.

Each background check must cover employees and supervisors, education credentials, work and employment references and criminal history. In some cases, some employers also run a credit history check on their candidates, this only applies when specifically related to the job you are hiring for.

In today’s economy, hiring the best outstanding people is critical. No enterprise can accomplish their goals single-handedly, it takes teamwork to make the dreams work. Hiring the right employee complements you work culture, employee morale, and doesn’t leave you feeling any sense of ‘buyer’s remorse’. By embracing all key elements in hiring a new employee, you are sure to find a perfect match!
