Losing a valuable employee is difficult for more than one reason because you already know you have to hire a replacement. The problem with hiring people is that it can go both ways, meaning that you might get a good person or not. So there is a lot riding on how well you execute this task. Huge sums of money are wasted every year simply because a business hired the wrong person. There are lots of reasons this might occur but one can certainly consider blaming the company. While candidates can lie, the company should be responsible for checking everything. In the end, it’s your job to make sure you hire the right person.
Hiring is a huge responsibility in any business. When it doesn’t go well, you need to find out why. For instance, HR handles initial interviews and follow-up hiring procedures for many companies. But they’re only really qualified to interview people for positions similar to the positions they have. They have no way to measure a candidate’s suitability for a technical position, for instance. It is critical for your hiring staff to have a complete understanding of the job in all respects. This is a major flaw in the hiring process that can’t possibly end the way you want.
Hiring new people is a process that requires you to consider two different points in time. Obviously, you have immediate needs so now is important. So any new hire has to be rationalized by what you need to have done. It would be a mistake, however, to dismiss the needs you anticipate having in the future. It’s worth considering temporary help if your needs are only short-term. Long-term, full-time employees need to work for your immediate and future needs. That’s the mindset you need to adopt when hiring.
Making an Offer
One of the bottom lines for any sort of transaction in which the agreement is based on exchanging value is that the offer needs to be solid. If you decide against buying a product, then maybe the offer is not good enough. When you get to the end of the deal you are offering, though, you will be making an offer for an employee that is based pretty much on salary. Obviously, there are other things that will be included as well. The thing that matters is your offer so make sure it is up to snuff if you truly are desperate for the best possible people. It’s an aspect of hiring that so many business owners fail at. The benefits to your company when you make a successful hire that proves to be the right person for the job are tremendous. These are the people who leave a mark on your business forever – in a very good way. But hiring the wrong person can be very negative for everyone involved. That is why it’s so important to get it right from the start.
