Q: My business is growing, and I need to hire more employees to help manage the increased workload. I’ve always been able to find employees through word of mouth and referrals when I needed to hire people before. Now we need to get more sophisticated about our hiring process, though, and I don’t know where to get started! Can you help me understand what I can do to attract the right candidates and, ultimately, hire the right people?
First off, congratulations on growing your business! The fact that you’re looking to hire is a sure sign that your business is headed in the right direction. With that said, it’s worth spending the time to make sure you hire the right candidate for the job.
Important things to consider in the hiring process are your outreach strategy, how to tackle interviews with candidates, and most importantly, how to know when to hire someone. All of these things are topics our own corporate recruiter, Tracy Simek, deals with every day. So we asked him to share his tips for how to add valuable members to your team.
