If finding loyal talents in the virtual world isn’t enough pain that makes every HR manager cringe, searching for top performers is. Whether you’re looking for a superstar technical crew or a creative maverick to join your team, the challenge often lies when you’re just starting up… because most likely, these top guns aren’t actively seeking for a job. In this age of BYOD workers, hiring the right people for your team can take months of frustrating trial and error – without positive results. There’s just trouble attracting quality candidates that costs you time, money and lost productivity. Is there a permanent fix to this dilemma?
How to Recruit Top Talents Fast, Easy and Painless
I’m not saying that there’s a quick way to remedy this hit-or-miss scenario in the hiring world. Most often, odds are stacked against you because you’re the very cause of the problem. If you want to have a stellar team to help move your business forward, you have to stop the shopper’s mentality hoping for a better worker to come along.. and start:
Revamping Your Corporate Culture
This may be a hard pill to swallow, but it all ends up with trust and respect. The greatest investment is your people. How you value them makes a huge impact, regardless of how big or small your business is.
There’s always the excuse that you’re too busy to handle the hiring process, so you leave the decision to someone who’s not equipped to make the right choice. Try as much as you can to be engaged in the process because you might not know what you’ll pick up, something that’s not within the applicant’s resume. You have to know if that person fits your company, skill-wise and personality-wise.
Being Quick, Short and To the Point
The best talents may not have all the time in the world to read through your job description and they may skip on to the next post. You have to eliminate any unnecessary steps, stop overthinking the interview process, and give a short feedback on time.
Thinking of Benefits
Just because you think your business is ‘cool’ doesn’t mean that you can attract the right people to work for you. If you feel like you can tempt these quality experts with money alone, don’t count on it! Everyone else is offering them the same thing ( or better ). Instead, try to think of interesting benefits that will make them bite the bait.
Leading by Example
They say that you’ll only know a great leader when you’re working for one. But, there are telltale signs too. Great leaders are not only people with a real sense of character; they are great listeners too. They are agile to change and communicate without delay. Great leaders don’t only say, ‘We want to hire you now!’ – they act now and hire without delay.
The second time you feel like taking your game to the next level, think quality over quantity.
