4 HR And Recruiting Tips For Strengthening Your Business:
Tip #1: Improve Your Interviewing — Building a strong team starts with the hiring process. Far too many employers make the mistake of shooting from the hip during an interview — no preparation, no plan. However, the more effort you put into the hiring process, the more likely you are to get the top talent you want. To improve your interviewing skills, task your HR people to develop a dynamic interviewing plan by reading books and studies on interviewing techniques. You may even want them to take a course on interviewing.
Tip #2: Don’t Be Afraid To Get Creative — Flexible, fun work cultures are extremely appealing to existing employees and potential candidates. Most businesses are afraid to stray from well-known business structures and models, but companies like Google and Best Buy have made news with their unorthodox business cultures and the freedom they allow employees (such as eliminating set work hours and permitting employees to come and go as they please — so long as they get their day’s work done). Creating a unique work culture could just prove to be a huge draw for top talent and help keep employee morale high.
Tip #3: Shine A Spotlight On Employees — As the rise of social media has proven, people have a genuine interest in the personal side of businesses. Employee profile pages (employee pictures and biographical information) tend to be the most visited pages on a business’ website. These staff profiles are also a great way to boost morale within your company by making your employees feel valued and an integral component of your businesses’ success, as opposed to a faceless, nameless cog in the machine that no one ever sees.
Tip #4: Strengthen Employer-Employee Relations — One of the leading causes for employee departure is their relationship with their boss. Healthy employer-employee relationships are at the heart of your business’ success. To help improve workplace relationships, HR pros need to ensure positive employer-employee relations by studying leadership trainings. They might do this by reading up on leadership training, by tapping employees for open and honest feedback on their employers, or by taking a class on leadership.
