If staff truly are the biggest assets of a firm then your recruitment strategy may well be the root cause of a number of issues or the key to your success.
It is imperative that staff are chosen who possess the right skills, experience and exposure, but also very importantly who will fit in with your company’s desired culture, values and existing team members. Company’s without a rigorous process to identify top talent can often be left behind or attract and hire the wrong talent. Anyone who has been in that situation could agree that these mistakes can be extremely costly, both from a pure monetary perspective, but also with regards time and disruption caused to a business through the wrong hire. These can often include:
- Exiting the individual who was incorrectly hired
- Starting the recruitment process again
- Agency or advertising costs re-occurred
- Induction and training needs to be done again
- The team and business continue struggling without optimum resources to achieve their objectives.
Right first time is definitely something you want applying to your recruitment and the chances of successfully applying this can be increased just by using sound techniques and ensuring the right questions are asked early on.
