Every business must recruit and hire employees, especially when that business is growing. Because hiring employees is such a major investment and risk, smart employers are always looking to improve their approach.
Hiring new employees is a critical part of being a business leader, and it involves much more than simply looking over resumes and conducting interviews. The truth is that hiring good employees can make or break your business.
Recruiting new hires involves risk management, as well, since the investment in time, resources and money can be quite high with each new employee hired. In addition, you have to manage the expectations of the candidates along with that of management and even the prospective employee’s co-workers.
Unfortunately, there are many mistakes and oversights that employers can make that could deter good candidates, or lead to poor hires.
