No matter the scope you envisioned for your business when you were first starting out, it’s likely that if your company has been successful, then that scope has been broadened. If you have expanded as a company, then you’ve probably found that you often have more work that needs to be done than you can do on your own.
Hiring new people can be tricky, especially if you haven’t hired employees beyond a limited scope before. Below are 3 hiring tips for small businesses that can be helpful for growing businesses who are just dipping their toes into the hiring waters:
You want to be honest with your potential employees while making sure they understand that working for your company is a rewarding opportunity. Coming up with a decent job posting that advertises your vacancy can be a tricky process though, and one you need to study to make sure you get it right. Job descriptions that are too long, or seem to come from a faceless company, or simply ask for an application without saying enough about the job are all rookie mistakes.
Once you have selected your top candidates it is time to interview them. Of course, you must be comfortable with the interviewing process. If you are not, then find someone within your company who is. You need to come across as friendly, but professional. You need to explain the full role and its responsibilities, what skills you expect the candidate to have, and to be prepared to field any questions your candidates may have. Always give your candidates time to think and speak, and don’t put them under too much pressure.
Finding the right person can take time, so don’t settle for the first person who impresses you. Make sure you give people enough time to find your job listing and to fill out your application. If you don’t, you may fill your vacant role with someone who can do the job to an adequate standard, while passing up on someone who may help your company really shine.
