Home' InDaily : November 6th 2009 Contents In these uncertain times one thing is for
sure... recruiting badly can cost valuable
time, money and resources! There can be
significant negative spin off's in relation to
recruiting poorly, some being - decreased
team morale, time and money wasted on
training and an organisation's strategic
direction/goals not being met.
When hiring new employees the recruitment
process is an integral part of any
organisation, as it allows for the employer
to bring on board new employees that have
solid expertise in their industry sector who
can potentially mentor other staff with their
knowledge. These employees encourage an
empowering environment and work culture
where all staff can further develop their skills
It is critical to get a recruitment process right
from the very start! A solid job briefing should
be given as well as having a well developed
job & person specification to refer to. Some
important points to consider in a job & person
specification are key performance indicators
(KPI's), job objectives, where the role fits
within the organisation, qualifications, working
hours, location of the position, decision
making authority and accountability, just to
name a few.
When employees exit or enter a business
it is the ideal opportunity for management
to make a fresh start and ensure all
existing and new staff are communicated
their responsibilities to minimise any
misconceptions regarding their job now or in
the future. Also, by having all of this in place
prior to starting a new recruit, an employer
has encouraged the business to continue
along with meeting the objectives of the
strategic plan and will obviously assist in
making the right decision on a new employee
who will benefit the organisation.
At Qest Human Resources, we encourage our
clients to recruit with up to date job & person
specifications allowing them to generate
appropriate behavioural based interview
questions as well as reference check
questions that are relevant regarding the
specific position's duties and responsibilities.
Every organisation would like a competitive
advantage -- recruit smart with the right job
& person specifications and don't waste
valuable dollars on poor recruiting.
This is only one step of the recruitment
process. By HR and Recruitment teams
within an organisation breaking down each
step of the recruitment process and with
level of attention to detail and consideration
will ensure the best possible opportunity
to attract and recruit the appropriate and
talented employees who will be loyal to your
organisation for years to come!
