Building a Stronger Workforce

/ Best Practices, Human Resources, Time & Labor

The success of a company relies heavily on the people you hire. Today’s competitive recruiting market has many in HR struggling to find creative ways to entice top professionals in their respective fields. However, before you send out an offer letter they can’t refuse, or build a case for talent to choose your company over another, you’ll want to strategize your hiring process. An integral first step in building a stronger workforce is how you approach recruitment.

Time is money and if you’re wasting a lot of it vetting wrong candidates you should be rethinking your qualification process. Today’s HR technology can pre-qualify candidates to ensure the resumes and potential hires you review are already adequately equipped for the job. This will also expedite the hiring process and move eligible candidates to the forefront for evaluation.

HR is no longer the sole participant in the hiring process. Team-based hiring brings a new dimension to recruitment and encouraging a collaborative process means keeping everyone on the same page. Implementing tools that unite employees in the process and allow for more meaningful decision-making through collaboration may result in improved retention rates.

Take a good hard look at the industry, your competition, and the level of hire you intend to bring on. Design a compensation package that will entice (and potentially surprise) top talent. While salaries garner the most attention, companies are getting more creative with benefits and employee perks. Comprehensive recruiting platforms with industry insight can help quantify and gauge your compensation in an effort to stand out from other companies.

One bad apple can spoil the bunch. And, as companies evolve into more collaborative workplaces this could be the kiss of death for productivity. Therefore, your recruiting and hiring processes must be a primary consideration in a people management platform.
