How to find the right employees

Posted on March 26, 2019 at 11:25 am

If your business is getting to the stage when you need to employ more people or if you have a member of staff leaving and need to fill the position, then you need to try and find the best possible candidates.

Many companies stipulate strict criteria that needs to be met in order for someone to apply for a job. This may be essential, where the job requires you to have certain qualifications by law, but if this is not the case then you may be missing out on an ideal candidate. 

Sometimes a candidate may not have all the qualifications or experience that you think you would like but that doesn’t mean that they are not the perfect person for the job. With any job role, personality plays a big part. You need to ensure that the person has the right work ethic and can mesh well with the rest of your team. Someone who is friendly, hardworking and willing to go the extra mile may be more suitable that someone who is more qualified.

You will need to analyse CV’s to be able to create a short list of people you want to invite in for an interview, but it is often only during the interview stage that you will really know if they are the right person for you.
