Today’s job market has become far more complex than it used to be. Requirements for success in the corporate and business world have evolved. This evolution has had a direct effect on what is required of potential employees. If you’re a business owner, you’ve most likely gone through the tedious recruitment process of selecting suitable candidates only to find out a couple of months later that they do not match up to your standards.
This post will show you a couple of things you can do to ensure that you hire the right employees and they keep delivering even after being onboarded. Too busy to read this? Nothing to worry about, you can get Flexible Staffing to handle your recruitment process, all you have to do is click here to get started.
Now, let’s discuss the tips:
Advances in Artificial intelligence and Machine Learning have allowed algorithms to be able to make predictions about almost everything from fraud tendencies to customer churn prediction. Guess what else algorithms can be used for? Predicting candidates’ fit for job roles.
Predictive analysis is helping HR departments discover the perfect candidates for specific job openings. You may be wondering if it’s really possible to predict human character or behavior. Yes, that’s a valid concern, however, HR predictive analytics will give you a sense of the candidates most likely to perform well.
Jumping right into a job role is sometimes the reason why staff find it difficult to be productive. No matter how well-trained a candidate may be, requirements for success in your unique workplace may not be the same with anything they’ve experienced previously and this will negatively affect performance.
A way around this problem is to have a probation period during which the job role is temporary. You can get to watch the candidate work on actual challenges and evaluate how well they fit into your company culture. If you’re satisfied, you can retain them and make the appointment permanent, otherwise, you can move on to other candidates until you find someone who does the job to your satisfaction. If this sounds like something you want to try out, click here for a seamless temporary staffing experience.
While this may sound similar to the temporary staffing point above, it is different in the sense that it is a long-term approach. Internships are a win-win situation both for you and the candidates. College students and recent graduates are often at the peak of their enthusiasm and have a lot of energy to invest in their jobs.
An internship program gives you access to a talent pool who are trained in-house and have had some experience with your workplace culture and can be eventually retained as permanent staff if they perform well. On many occasions, interns are able to fill in for core staff who had to leave at short notice. Finally, compared to regular staff, interns don’t cost much to hire. It’s a situation that gives you a lot of potential upside for less than a quarter of the cost.
