How to Tell if Your Company is Slowing Down Its Own Hiring Processes

ID-10079978You’ve probably gone through the hiring process and had it work quite well most of the time. When it doesn’t, do you wonder whether there are enough skilled applicants out there? What if it’s your own processes and actions that are making it more difficult to find the employees you need? There are several things to be aware of in order to ensure that you aren’t sabotaging your own hiring process.

Four Situations to Watch For:

  • Your company has a poor reputation as a workplace. If the word gets out that your current employees aren’t happy or your former employees allege that your company wasn’t a good place to work, that can deter applicants from considering your job vacancies.
  • You’re not looking for the right qualities, judging experience over potential.  If you’re clinging to expectations that the only applicant you’ll seriously consider has experience in most aspects of their job, instead of looking for applicants who have potential to learn and bring value to your company, you’ll struggle to find the right applicants.
  • You don’t have the right hiring processes in place. Sometimes it’s your own hiring process that gets in the way of things.For example, you may only have one person interview applicants, which doesn’t necessarily give a rounded picture of each candidate. It’s possible that your business scares away good potential applicants by having the job application process being too complicated or confusing.
  • Your business leaves a poor impression on applicants.  If applicants walk away from their interview feeling like there’s a problem in the business, or like employees aren’t happy, even if they’re perfect for your job, they may not want the position.

If you’re looking for help in correcting any of these situations to better your hiring processes, then you should take a look at ADAM Personnel’s services.
