Recruiting and hiring practices for HR teams tend to change and evolve largely due to technology advances and changes in culture. In addition, there are generational differences that must be considered over time.
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.
