To continue moving forward and growing as a company, you have to have the right people in the right positions. A successful business begins with the ability of a company to locate and hire the best possible person. Your company is a team and as such, if everyone can execute their skills properly and can take advantage of each other, there will be no obstacle to stop them.
When recruiting or selecting personnel, companies must analyze not only the skills and experience of a candidate, but also their ability to work in a team, ability to adapt to changes, and talent to communicate in writing and verbally.
What makes it effective?
An effective recruitment process focuses on internal and external candidates. It is not necessary to take the easy route when hiring a less appropriate person simply because he is an internal candidate. Encourage your current collaborators to recommend people for the vacancy. Use your time researching what method of advertising is intended for the audience you are trying to attract
Decide exactly what skills you are looking for the person to have and design your interviews and selection process to focus on people with those skills. Similarly, take note of the strengths your current team lacks. If you have five people with an excellent ability to communicate in writing, but find it difficult to appear before a wider audience, select people who can help you close that gap. If you can't find someone in your first round, start over.
Even the most qualified candidates may require some type of training, however, an effective selection and recruitment process reduces the amount of time you will spend training a new employee. On the other hand, if you choose a candidate that fits perfectly and lacks some technical skills, it is wise to invest in your training. This will reward you in the future. You can always train someone to do a specific task; It is much harder to teach soft skills such as reliability and flexibility.
One benefit of choosing the right candidate for the vacancy is your ability to work autonomously. A collaborator who does not self-motivate or self-sufficient is a leak for the administration, the team and the company in general. Also, if the elected candidate is not the right one for the job, he will resign, forcing you to restart the process. Properly chosen candidates tend to experience greater job satisfaction and higher levels of motivation.
Ineffective staff costs are expensive. A large amount of time, energy and resources are used to make a mediocre and poor person, someone successful and effective. In many cases, the amount of training or preparation, motivation or discipline used to try to improve a complicated person does not matter. This is why it is crucial to rely on an effective recruitment and selection process to avoid future problems.
