How To Attract The Right Employees

 

Your employees are one of your biggest expenses, and knowing how to attract the right employees is extremely important to just about any business’s ability to function. Bad employees are almost always a death knell for a company, while good ones will make a company soar. So, how do you get the right employees for a job? Though there’s no cut-and-dry perfect one-size-fits-all answer, these tips will likely improve your odds of getting the best candidate.

 

  • Don’t keep employees waiting for hours. This is a big deal-breaker for top employees. Most employees want to schedule an interview for a certain time, and then actually interview at that time. If you make them wait for 45 minutes, an hour, or more, they’ll likely walk out the door.
  • Keep your office looking professional. This is a major, major part of attracting the best workers in the field. If you want to make them want to work with you, look successful and professional.Bring up your employee morale, and make a point to keep employees happy. A happy, upbeat working environment does wonders for both current employee productivity and future employee interest. If your company makes the mistake of ignoring employee needs, then you will likely end up having your best workers quit, other workers purposefully avoid your company, and also deal with a slump in productivity.
  • Compensate them fairly. Give them a market salary – at the very least. Most top tier workers will have no interest in working for a company that pays them only $10 an hour. Benefits such as health insurance are also important for this very point. Low paying jobs will never grab the best talent, ever.
  • Sell your company the right way. A good business owner knows that an interview goes both ways. The applicant is interviewing to see if your company is what they want to be associated with. Make sure that you pass your interview by smiling, being lighthearted, and actively trying to engage your interviewees. It is possible to fail your end of the interview by making your company appear like a pyramid scheme or something similar. Learn the difference, and make sure that what you advertised as a position is what you’re going to be expecting them to do.
  • Always end the interview on a good note. You don’t want the last impression they have of you to be a bad one. You want them to try again, even if they didn’t make the cut the first time around.
  • Don’t buckle and beg the first qualified person you meet. This is a great way to get a person who doesn’t fit into your company culture to join your crew, and later get fired. Wait for the right candidate!Have a list of qualifications that are must-haves, and a list that are preferred. Do not, under any circumstances, try to hire someone who doesn’t have all the “musts” of a good employee, such as the right training, the right accomplishments, the right experience, and the right attitude for work. If they don’t have what you’re looking for, they are not the right fit.

 

The right candidate for any job is a hard find, but it is possible when you know what you’re looking for. When in doubt, keep a close eye on what you need, and keep reaching out to people until you get what you need.
