The Recruitment Series – Week 1

We at AHR take recruitment very seriously. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to discuss different aspects of the steps involved in recruiting through a short series of posts. We’ll start this week with a few points about why using best practice when hiring is so important for a company, no matter its size.

Find the best fit for you by using best practice when recruiting.

It is more vital than ever to ensure that, when hiring, you can identify the best candidate for your available role. Using best practice techniques will only benefit you in terms of productivity and cost reductions.

Setting aside for a minute the fact that you’ll be able to save time and minimise hiring costs overall (You only had to hire for the role once? Saving time! Only had to advertise and onboard once? Saving Money!), getting the process right the first time can bring other rewards such as:

Reducing Employee Burnout

If your company is forced to run a person short whilst you hire, other workers must often fill the gap in the meantime. Hiring the best talent for you (and the new hire themselves) means minimising the time that this is the case, which keeps hours more regular, maintaining job satisfaction and adequate rest for all employees and facilitates a less stressful environment.

Reduce Risk

Inexperienced or poor candidates for the role can lead to increases in risks taken and hazards present in a workplace. More experienced and ‘settled-in’ workers keep your local knowledge levels high and promote a safer workplace for all. Finding and retaining the right workers that keep this knowledge in your company for a significant time is important in building a team that is a valuable asset for you.

Encourage Team Morale

A group of employees that feel comfortable and safe in their workplace will always be happier. Ensuring that your new hire can fit in well and become a valued part of your team provides a great base for a happy workplace which will, in turn…

Maximise Productivity

Building the right team for your company and surrounding yourself with employees that are engaged brings increased productivity and profitability. Great ideas are born when a working group can enlist each other in open conversation, and this opens the gateway for innovative ideas and new efficiencies for your workspace from unique and varied perspectives.

Looking at the points above, is there an aspect of making the correct role appointment that you had not considered when you last engaged in hiring for an open role? We realise that often managers and/or recruiters are often time poor and simply do not have the time to take on an all-inclusive view of recruitment processes which can lead to less-than-optimal results.

That’s where we come in.

We at AHR are uniquely positioned to be able to assist you with your next, best hire.  

We offer three levels of package, so whether you prefer to be provided with helpful templates and explanations on how to best run the process yourself (we support you doing it), whether you prefer an experienced AHR professional to be there with you through the whole process (we do it with you) or whether you want to take your own time back and have us complete the process ourselves (we do it for you), there is a package that will suit any need.

Call us now on 1800 577 515, or get in touch via our website (where you can send a query or book a free consult with the “book” button). One of our professional staff will be more than happy to talk to you to see what we can do to take the pain out of your next recruitment drive.

We’ll see you next week when we return to discuss how to use best practices whilst attracting potential candidates so you can find the right fit for you and your company.
