How to Find Good Employees

How do you find good employees for your business. Hiring employees for your company can be disastrous unless you have a system. Far too often small business owners and managers are in a hurry and  make quick decisions to hire someone to fill a recently vacated position. By using a system to hire the right employee you can prevent the “hire and fire” syndrome that happens to small business owners.  search-768328__180 pixaby free

The Harvard Business Review points out that as much as 80 percent of employee turnover is due to bad hiring decisions. In the long run it can cost you plenty.

In an article I wrote for Corp Detroit Magazine I discuss a three step system to minimize hiring mistakes. You can read more here.

The key is to put together a plan to hire new employees.  We have all heard the saying if you fail to plan you will plan to fail.

The use of a 12 month calendar that you hang on your office wall is a good start. Plot out on that calendar the steps you will take to insure a steady stream of new candidates you can hire.

For many small business owners flying by the seat of their pants or the pleat of their dress is not a formula for successful hiring. The main thing to remember is you will always put you and your business at a disadvantage if you allow a business crisis to force you to hire in haste. Here are three of points to keep in mind when hiring new employees.

  • Create job ads that accurately describe the requirements of the position.
  • Have a detailed description of the ideal job candidate.
  • Look for employees in the right places.
