Recruitment — the filling of vacancies — is a fairly involved process with several steps that include:
- Determining the characteristics you are looking for
- Writing an effective job description
- Sourcing (the art of finding skilled people)
- Resume screening
- Interviewing for knowledge, skills and attitude
- Reference Checks
HOW DO RECRUITMENT STRATEGIES AFFECT MY BUSINESS?
How you recruit and select people can reduce your turnover, improve employee morale and increase productivity — all of which contribute directly to your bottom line. The key is selecting the right strategy for your business. For example, you may find that a policy to promote from within results in lower turnover as employees see that hard work and effort are recognized.
