How To Develop A Hiring System For Better Hires
Every company should develop a hiring system to fill vacant job positions. Using an effective hiring process to recruit new employees can help to ensure logical job placements that will benefit both the new hires and the company. Attracting well-qualified applicants to fill job openings in your organization should not be taken lightly.
1. Create a job description. This can apply to an existing or new position. The description should include required qualifications, preferred qualifications, and details about the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual aspects of the job opening. This information can be gleaned from the current job holder, coworkers, supervisors, and even clients or customers. Company administrators and HR personnel should review and edit the job description before it is posted.
2. Establish an interview panel. This may take the form of a committee or task force, and should include staff members who are trained in skilled interviewing techniques. For example, interviewers must know which questions cannot be legally asked, such as marital status. Interviewers should also understand the type of questions that can elicit meaningful responses that can aid in filling the position with the most qualified candidate.
3. Appoint application reviewers. These persons are equipped to analyze application materials, including resume or vita, application letter, references, and any other supporting documents. They know how to obtain previous employment information, legal records that are available for applicants, and perhaps review Internet websites posted by candidates or personal videos for this purpose.
A responsible hiring system is prepared to manage a job opening from its inception to its filling with the best applicant. Recruiting and retaining top-notch employees can cut turnover costs, reduce benefits expenses, and ensure a cooperative and productive workplace environment.
